      I'm pretty sure he's wearing a pink corduroy suit he got on Travel Man.
      Which is a somewhat tentatively connected observation.

    Or if you were being really over the top.
    5 cubed is 125

    250 x (3+1) is 1000
    10 squared is 100
    100/2 is 50
    1000-50 is 950
    I thought about that for way too long

    He makes such a big deal of them becoming "white" socialite women, and jokes it's irrelevant to say white. But he makes every effort to not say the two make FBI agents are black. Strange that isn't it? Instead he plays on gender which at the time of making the film it was as much about race as gender.

  • Monsieur Tea Slurper

    I'm sorry, I find him to be bland, overly dry, and just unfunny. Lacklustre humour which reeks of a politically motivated undertone. But don't take my word for it.

    And his choice of words.

      What Mr. Ayoade stated is sort of the truth. In the UK and Europe they were almost exclusively royals (which were of course, whites). Even today, try and look up the top 50 or 100 socialites. People don't say it, but 'white/caucasian' can almost be part of the definition of a socialite. I think that was what Ayoade went for.
