Paul Hollywood's transformation is really amusing

So why did Paul Hollywood transform himself into Billy Ray Cyrus? It was for a video to kick-start the latest season of "The Great British Bake Off." The chef was definitely amused and reposted the video clip on Instagram with the caption, "What were we thinking?" 

According to Eater, the TV show is notorious for coming up with wacky intros, and this edition was no exception. Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith, and the rest of the gang were dressed as country musicians in the clip, dancing to a version of the popular song, "Achy Breaky Heart." There was also a very confused squirrel in the clip who escaped the scene at the first opportunity. "This feels like one of those weird moments you experience whilst in a dream," read one of the most-liked comments. Someone else commented that this clip made their day. Another fan wondered whether they'd get to see a longer promo version of the clip. Entertaining, to say the least.
