Question 433.a: Caveat Venditor

_X_ was considered amongst the most versatile actors of his generation, and has gone on to influence a cavalcade of comedians such as Sancho Baron Cohen (Borat), etc.

_X_ was knighted for his acting skills, and was close to Beatles Ringo Starr, and George Harrison.
Video 1 is _X_, in the role of _Y_, reciting a song _Z_.

_X_ is also famously remembered for his role in video 2, sparking off the craze of the phrase stated in the movie, and which went on to be associated with all Indians hereafter. Apu Nahashameemapettilon's voice was based on _X_'s diction of a desi.

But _X_'s coup de grace could be considered being the original _A_, from the series _B_ . HIs version of _A_ was what inspired one of his fans to imitate the same style in the revival of the franchise _B_.


THen also ID anythign else in the question.

Peter Sellers.

I haven't seen either of the videos, but I'll still try to do some guess work:

video 1 = ? (Can't make out anything in the thumbnail)

video 2 = The Party (Again, I haven't seen either the video or the film)

A = Jacques Clouseau

B = The Pink Panther

This is Sandeep Mathias.

Peter Sellers
Y is Richard III (Laurence Olivier style)
Z is A Hard Day's Night
Sellers acted as Inspector Clouseau in the original Pink Panther.
Caveat Venditor is Latin for let the seller beware

X - Peter Sellers
Y - Laurence Olivier's portrayal of King Richard III
Z - A Hard Day's Night (Beatles)
A - Inspector Clouseau
B - The Pink Panther

Y is richard the III.
Z is A hard days night
A would be clouseu
B would then be pink panther

x obviously peter sellers

X is Peter Sellers reciting A Hard Day's Night

A is of course Chief Inspector Clouseau from the Pink Panther Series(B).
