2Phat was an Irish television programme that was shown twice weekly on Network 2 from 1998 to 2000.[1] It reunited Ray D'Arcy and Zig and Zag, who had previously appeared together on The Den.[2] Following the demise of this show, all three would not appear together again until 14 November 2008, when D'Arcy hosted a Den Reunion Reunited special on his Today FM programme The Ray D'Arcy Show.

Format[edit | edit source]

The theme music for the opening of the TV show was a version of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" by Propellerheads. Other music was provided by DJ Lee.[3]

The show typically consisted of 15 audience members, usually a class in school / college, who all knew each other.[citation needed] The show would have short sketches, which involved a question, usually music-related. The person who buzzed in first got a chance to answer the question, if answered correctly they then had to pick a title from the phat board. The phat board (a big Television screen) would then play a short section from three different music videos which all had something in common. At the end of the show one person would be selected at random from the people who answered a question correctly to play the final round where they could win a motor scooter.[citation needed]

Segments[edit | edit source]

Recurring segments included several involving "Velcro Girl". Velcro Girl was played by Tracy Sheridan, who was a model dressed in a velcro-covered catsuit, came on stage with items stuck to her, which provided hints to an artist's identity, which the audience would guess. She made her entrance to the Tom Jones song "You Can Leave Your Hat On".[4]

In "Hum a Hit", a random person on the street would hum a song, which the audience would try and guess.[citation needed]
