14/05/16: Walking into a packed-out Comptons we noticed a lot of blokes bearing a lot of different flags for the various countries competing in this years Eurovision.
So no matter who was going to win, we knew we were in for a good night. It was a bit of a fight to the bar but we met some interesting people on the way, like a group of Swedish girls with their faces painted, clutching flags and screaming for their country in between shots.
The ever-jovial English were mostly bearded and beer swilling, like a scene from Game of Thrones. Plus a band of Scottish and Irish bears arguing over who was wearing the best tartan! Of course the biggest cheer of the night came for England’s Joe & Jake.
Now whether this was because they’re sexy as fuck or people really loved the song, we can’t be sure. Oh well. See you next time, Comptons!
