Rik Mayall RIP: when I met Rik. Briefly.

Sadly, a classic case of the cutting room floor, but my mate Kirstin and I were in The Art of Noise Peter Gunn video starring Rik Mayall.

We thought he was cute as well as funny. Kirstin flirted outrageously and asked him how much he was getting paid for being in it, and was it the same as us (ha ha!)? He looked appalled and said he wouldn't get out of bed for that little.

I was in a big black hat, throwing shapes in the nightclub scene (whatever happened to that footage?) but you can see Kirstin. One of those hands is hers!

RIP Rik. You will always be forever Young One to me.
