Carl and I think outside the YouTube box this episode as we watch our first movie on Vimeo. (That's right, Vimeo has full-length movies now, it's not just uploads of art projects.) Carl says the Pet Shop Boys made this movie to avoid touring and make some more home video moolah. Neil and Chris (aka the Boys) walk, bicycle and drive all over an English Seaside Town, meeting nuns, priests, serial killers, ventriloquists, and whatever passes as English Humour. Occasionally they sing along to the background music (Neil does, Chris is the silent one). It enjoyable, even if Neil and Chris act otherwise.
