At last night's NME Awards in London, Dean Blunt was awarded the Philip Hall Radar Award, but he wasn't on site to accept it. Instead, an unnamed stand-in in a military jacket accepted the award in his place, commenting, "Thanks to the man upstairs, thanks NME. I finally made it!" We're not sure if Blunt wrote that speech for him, but he clearly enjoys taking the piss out of critics: Idris Elba threw some shots in a review of his record for Noisey, and Blunt opened his latest video "100" with a full transcript of his comments.
