I tried to write a serious, gritty heartbreak drama about the end of a relationship as explored through the blowing out of candles. I even grew a tiny little beard and put on a turtle-neck for the shoot. Everybody keeps telling me how funny it is, and now The Poke have absolutely gypped me by banging on here about this "hilarious" new sketch. Down with The Poke. Don't listen to them. I'm trying to rebrand myself as a serious auteur, and this is not helping. As ever, thanks to Matt and Ali for their support in this difficult time, they did amazing work on this short film and don't deserve to have their reputations dragged through the mud by all these lies from the fake news media.
