Dame Edna is Back With A Vengeance!

Dear Video Viewer,

Call me old-fashioned, but like my little pal Shirley MacLaine, I am heavily into reincarnation. I have been Queen Nefertiti of the Nile, Queen Boadicea, Joan of Arc and Ms Anne Hathaway - who wrote most of Shakespeare’s material - to name but a few.

I only wish videos had been invented in those days so I could sit back and watch an exciting action replay of my olden day antics.

But, thanks to Virgin Videos, posterity at last has a chance to enjoy my current incarnation as caring mother and megastar. My most recent one woman show is now yours at the touch of your remote control. Incidentally, Possums, this video has a spookily historic dimension. It shows my incredible bravery on the night when heartbreak struck.

Please ignore the introductory item by Sir Les Patterson. It is unnecessary and uncalled for, and it would be a tragedy if the world judged Australia by its politicians. Suffice to say that Sir Les is more upmarket than most.

I have just heard that this historic video has now been placed in a time capsule so that future generations will get a spooky insight into the way we lived, loved and laughed in the late 80’s.

Happy viewing Possums…

Dame Edna
