Crashing has no bounds

Gatecrashers turn up at a memorial service for Michael Winner

The 2005 film Wedding Crashers starring Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn and Christopher Walken made that breed of crasher famous but an image from today’s Mail Online illustrates another of their number: the memorial crasher.

The “merry gang” of canapé lovers we’ve written of previously are regularly spotted at openings (and closings), in peoples’ homes and anywhere else where drinks are free. Like a tribe, they turn up en masse and they reek havoc wherever they go.

 

Whatever the event, somehow these characters somehow skulk in. One of the best known, a bow tie wearing character named David Pun who features at 13th position on our roll call of social butterflies, has attracted 49 comments about his activities. Most of them are far from complimentary.

 

The Mail’s image, however, illustrates that for some crashers there are indeed no boundaries. If you look in the background of an image of two of Winner’s friends, Sir Michael Caine and Lord Archer, at the service in The Mall, you’ll see a certain well known crasher. The only question that comes to mind is: “Have these people got no shame?”

      • How anyone could possibly be a friend of the odious Archer defies belief. Obviously, Winner had a judgment bypass on that particular friend. As to the other ‘guests’ I would have no idea as to whether they were invited or not. Generally memorial services are not ‘by invitation only’: unless, of course, one is quite grand.
        I fear I never gained access to the select circle of Mr Winners’ friends….I suppose I was just too common.

  1. I have always hung around Burger King or Mcdonalds and sometimes upgraded to Nando’s. The thought of gate crashing has never crossed my mind. Ian Yule a former mercenary in Mike Hoare’s army introduced me to the legendary Richard Burton, as I just happened to be in Tshipise at the time Burton and Richard Harris was working on the Wild Geese. I knew Ian Yule as a result of David Millin who was a friend of my father.
    Burton reeked of alcohol and tobacco, in his defence, we were caught up in a heatwave.
    Burton and Harris might have been actors, but believe me, they were not the type of guys you would want to mess with. Who needs to gatecrash? Only a fool.
