Britons (ancient and modern) Liberating the Smiler Within

An interesting British contrast to the song shown in my post on 21 March, headed Russians Liberating the Smiler Within, was broadcast last night on BBC Radio 4’s programme The Now Show (listen at minute 23) about the Bouncy Druids on their Inflatable Stonehenge, “We go bouncing on the Solstice…. ” You will not be not amused.
     If the Russian song could plausibly be described as "art" (of a sort), what is the word for the British one?
     The best one-word description of the Bouncy Druid song, from a Russian and from a non-Russian, will each win an invitation to the next Glenfiddich whisky tasting that this blog will host. Send them in as comments, please, but also email me your contact details so I can issue the inviation.
