Van Halen not impressed with Karl Pilkington's 'Jump'

Van Halen unhappy with Karl Pilkington's 'Jump'

Rockers Van Halen are desperate to ban a comedian's performance of their hit track ‘Jump’ from Ricky Gervais' latest TV series - because it's shockingly bad.

The Office creator sent a camera crew to film his sidekick Karl Pilkington singing the song alongside an American chorus club for upcoming TV show An Idiot Abroad: The Bucket List.

But according to Gervais, the band was less than impressed with Pilkington's rendition - and they've asked to censor it from the programme.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "Van Halen are trying to put a stop on it, because it is that bad. But (TV network) Sky have got a blanket agreement so we can put it out in England. But we can't put it out in America or on the DVD."

An Idiot Abroad: The Bucket List, which is produced by Gervais, follows Pilkington as he attempts to tackle a list of challenges he wants to accomplish before he dies.
