Last month, the band launched the new series with a short film that followed the band on tour. In the short film, Matty Healy meets fans on the street and works out. “You’re not a little girl, you’re a big strong man!” he tells himself while lifting weights.
Now in the second episode, Healy appears in front of a mirror and gets progressively more and more frustrated with himself as he struggles to enunciate a lyric from the band’s 2022 single ‘I’m In Love With You’.
“I would rip the fuck out of my band on the internet,” he says at one point. If I existed, I would hate me so much.
“I’d hate the band. I’d hate all this bullshit acting,” he adds, while smoking a joint in a bathroom, before looking scared at a knock on the door.
Check out the new episode, which also sees the band singing Shania Twain backstage at a gig, below.
The band are currently on the Australia and New Zealand leg of their ‘At Their Very Best’ world tour in support of new album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’.
