Let’s be frank. I have never liked the Bryan brothers. They irritate me. They creep me out. They leave me a certain skin-crawly feeling that they would shove my face through a woodchipper soon as look at me (not an uncommon reaction, I’m sure). But tonight, I love them, because they have indirectly led to the epicness below.
Tonight, Andy Murray appeared on James Corden’s World Cup Live (the ‘live’ is important), a benign and irritating show which I have strenuously avoided up until now. For those who aren’t familiar, Corden is the co-writer and one of the stars of Gavin & Stacey, a position he has parlayed into an irritating media omnipresence. However, he is undeniably charming and worked with Murray on this segment of a truly epic sketch for Sport Relief earlier this year:
That relationship has been translated into Murray’s appearance on the show tonight. God, I love him. Watch his bits (heh) from the live ITV show tonight, I promise it’s worth it:
Only the perennially well-intentioned Corden could get away with mocking Andy this much to his face and not make me hate him. Bonus ribbing from the ITV4 segment:
Go on. Don’t love him. I dare you.
