The Publicity Stunts - Episode 44

Gaynor and Pixie Lott are mooching around the local video rental shop, opposite Kwik Save. They’re surprised when they see Paul appear behind the counter. Apparently it’s another of Ed Sheeran’s investments and he’s asked Paul to cover some shifts whilst he finds more staff. ’Paul can you sub us for a video?’ asks Gaynor with one of her winning smiles. ‘Of course madam’ he replies formally, ‘which one of our many interesting and varied titles can I tempt you with tonight?’ ‘Driller Killer’ replies Gaynor casually, causing Pixie to drop the display copy of ‘My Fair Lady’. ‘Interesting choice madam’ comments Paul, ‘however remember your nightmares about Bill Sykes and his dog ‘Bullseye’ after watching ‘Oliver!’ ‘Perhaps Pixie’s choice is more appropriate?’ Gaynor and Pixie consult momentarily, ‘can you put ‘My Fair Lady’ in the ‘Driller Killer’ box?’ requests Gaynor, ‘I’ve a bet with the vicar you see.’ ‘VHS, Betamax or Laserdisc Madam?’ asks Paul.
