Shamed Sky Sports
presenters Richard Keys and Andy Gray's bizarre new YouTube channel has been
pulled after just a few days online after attracting minimal traffic.

The Mirror reports that
their thoughts from a video posted a week ago had attracted just 517 views in
five days.

A sexism row, which
began with some off-air comments about assistant referee Sian Massey, cost
Keys and Gray their jobs.

Keys and Gray have been
presenting a radio show on TALKsport since then, but their turn on YouTube
represents the first time they have been seen on-screen together thereafter.

However, if it was
designed to enhance their profiles, the signs are that it has not had the
desired effect.

The duo, who earlier this
year were still using state-of-the-art technology to present Premier League
games on the subscription channel, are shown in the videos talking about football
on park benches, filmed by what looks to be a cameraphone.

At one point in the now
unavailable videos, the pair's discussion on football is drowned out by the
noise of a passing van.

And in the comments section of one of the clips, a viewer describes the
effort as "like when Ron Burgundy loses his job in Anchorman."

No formal reason has been given for the appearance - or disappearance - of the clips.
