This series of podcasts is about Ed Sheeran’s Merry Mutant Grandad (MM GDD). He is a fictional creature based on the song of the same title, shortly to be released with its own video.
The MM GDD has been mutated by ‘reverse genetic mutation’ by Richard Fordham, a songwriter, using genetic material from Ed Sheeran in order to guarantee a more successful future of songwriting. One of the main features of the mutation is a sudden growth of ginger hair on Richard’s otherwise bald head.
The first episode shows him leaving the clinic and going on an erratic trip. He borrows some gardening clothes, and a garden tractor and goes off into the woods. He builds himself a hut on the ground. The second episode shows him searching for food and cooking it on his campfire.
