Actually, I thought he looked half asleep as if he had just been awakened to make that video speech
I thought the same, but I think the more likely explanation could be that he had just finished a hard day's training and was knackered. Judging by all the 'ums' it obviously wasn't pre-rehearsed!
As for Judy's comment - once again it could well be an example of how humour very often doesn't translate into cold print. Anyway it's the sort of comment my own mother used to make, so I don't hold it against her!
