So you know how you’ve been asking for a little insight into what our daily lives are here at The Loop? No? Okay, maybe that was our mom. But in case you were wondering what we go through in the pursuit of funny, engaging content, imagine this:
You’re interviewing your comedic idol John Cleese of Monty Python and Fawlty Towers fame. You’re chatting about his new book, So Anyway…, his first in an autobiographical trilogy about his life and career, when suddenly, out of the blue, he does something unfathomable.
No, he doesn’t start uncontrollably shouting Ni! Ni! Ni! or chide Taylor Swift about her teenie-tiny cat. Instead, the star beckons the camera to come closer — his calm, gentle demeanour willing you to do what he says.
So you do.
This is, after all, a servant in The Ministry of Silly Walks, the French Taunter, Nearly Headless Nick — really, what’s not to trust? But your brain is moving in a million different directions. What’s going on? Is he about to entrust me with a career-altering exclusive scoop? Wait a minute, am I being pranked?
Then, he just whips it off. Yes, he whipped it off right in front of your eyes.
And while it might not have been the career-altering scoop of one’s dreams, it certainly was exclusive.
Need the perfect gift for the comedy-lover this holiday season? So Anyway… is available now at Indigo.ca
