…and now for something completely different

Good evening all, Enzo here from Tuesday night's POP Goes The World show

Tonight, The Haberdasher and myself will be doing the ol' switcheroo.
I will be taking over The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit Show tonight, and he will be gettin' his POP on tomorrow night on Pop Goes The World.
Out of respect for The Haberdasher, I will not be wearing the gray flannel suit whilst doing his show this evening.

As you can see, I chose to opt for something a tad less formal.
