Alan Johnson sang Walk Like an Egyptian on TV dressed as a pharaoh – 11 stunned reactions
British TV has imported The Masked Singer, a game show format that originated in South Korea, and it’s blowing people’s minds.
The premise is that famous people sing while wearing elaborate costumes and the panel tries to guess who they are.
Among a lot of weird stuff, this performance of Walk Like an Egyptian by former Labour Home Secretary Alan Johnson, dressed as a pharaoh, manages to stand out as particularly odd.
