This song features the I.T. Crowd episode ‘The Haunting of Bill Crouse’. In the plot for the memorial of an employee (initially Jen, but finally Small Paul), the boss pretends to invite Elton John.

While Neil does not play Elton (the actor remains uncredited), it’s actually him singing the song. And at that point one of the employee figures “I don’t think that’s Elton John”.
