I found the original version of the stand up video which does not have a watermark, is cropped nicely and has a better resolution. If anyone wants me to I will even remake the stripper GIFS so that you can enjoy them in even more graphic detail.
Now I’ve seen Richard Ayoade mime sucking cocks and being a stripper. What a world we live in.
Not that I read too much into things but… I love this moment in the clip when Julian puts his hand on Noel’s back and Noel seems a little unsure of how to move so he’s out of Julian’s way. It just makes me think of being young and having a crush on a guy and holding his hand even after it was all sweaty because I didn’t want to be the one to pull away or getting a crick in my neck while he had his arm around me because I was worried that if I moved, he’d take his arm away. I always have the feeling Noel would dislocated his shoulder rather than let Julian know there’s no place for him to put his arm.
And another -(very early) interview with Noel and Julian
