Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison regrets success of popular TV quotes
Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison has urged people to stop shouting “bus w **** r”, and regrets the success of some of the show’s most iconic phrases.
The Channel 4 sitcom first appeared on our screens in 2008, and spawned three series and two spinoff films, blessing viewers with now infamous quotes.
Side note: we always say “oooh friend” at every opportunity.
But Blake – who played Neil Sutherland – admitted he felt bad for helping to increase the number of people referred to as “bus w **** r” while they were just waiting at a stop. bus.
Appearing on the Distraction Pieces podcast, the 35-year-old said, “It’s weird because you think, well, I don’t think I gave the world anything big…
“It’s like the word ‘clunge’. Or people shouting “bus w ***** s” at people standing at bus stops.
“I prefer people not to do that. It doesn’t seem like the prettiest or the best thing in the world to have contributed to.
Despite being responsible for some awkward phrases that make their way into everyday life, Blake revealed that hearing someone famous, or someone he admires, quote from the show is something that never gets old. never.
The star continued, “In terms of people using phrases, when it’s somebody really popular dating a ‘something friend’ or whatever, you say, ‘Well that’s more like cool.
“So you clearly liked the show and you might think I’m funny, it’s really cool.”
‘You can’t help but like this. You can’t get enough of it. It is really adorable.
We last saw the Inbetweeners gang in 2014, with the release of the second film – after Neil, Simon (Joe Thomas), Jay (James Buckley) and Will (Simon Bird) as they traveled to Australia.
Show creator Iain Morris recently revealed he’d like to work with the gang again – and teased that they might get the cast together someday.
“I love everyone involved so much, and we’re still talking, and we have a hilarious WhatsApp group,” he previously told Digital Spy. “And, you know, I can’t imagine never doing something with them again. I don’t know if it would be The Inbetweeners.
Co-creator Damon Beesley added, “If we could think of something and think, ‘Oh, that’s a great idea for these four characters! “I think it would be the easiest thing in the world to go back and do it.
Hopefully they avoid the “clunge” and the “bus w ***** s” …
The Inbetweeners is available to stream on All4 now.
