"I was so heartbroken because the next day I was gonNA Copacabana and hero to my favorite trucks Copacabana Capanna Nielsen. DACA BOURBON LOW. Oh my God I is to favor is neal's the darker I'm Barry Manilow. So that's why my confusion came -solutely to the best trucks and I've heard you sing Copacabana and it's quite fabulous. Darling Oh thank you. Thank thank you know I had A. I had a good run and I had so much fun on the show and and I really. I don't know just very thankful for it because it's been really sweet we Just since have been unmasked it's been gotten so much love from the British public. Sure of course. What was the process? This is like when you got the GIG and the whole lead up to everything. Well it was everything super secret you know so you had. The show had a nickname of the. I can't even allowed to stay with fake name of the show was so all emails and and transactions and stuff it all had. It was a fake name it was. We had a fake name for the show. Gotcha and you know I was just doing a lot of like stuff on facetime with them. just getting ready before it and talking about SARS in going through arrangements and then once I got to the UK it was just like full tilt boogie like we. I was staying in London. It's shot shot about an hour and a half outside. London focus so I would get in the car and about two miles away from the from the studio like I would have to completely we cover up in anybody. I had to completely cover up and where these like welder's mask. Things of your face. Were a Hoodie. That giant Diane and giant White Letters. That said don't speak to me. 'cause I couldn't speak to me gloves. I'm like everything is covered in that I couldn't there was only only like two of the producers and then like I had like a liaison and vocal coach knows where the only people I could speak to everybody else worked on the show also. Didn't no it was me. Wow how much input. You'll KAVAK. Todd did you have will be interested in a Unicorn and I thought I thought it would be a great great. A perfect fit for me and you know. They sent me a sketch that looked awesome. I had a couple of notes on it. And then they're like. Do you have any anything you want us to do with it specifically and I just said I want big blue eyes. Seattle is kind of a clue because I have these crazy the rolling insane close next level insane like apps and really like raise A. Hey I love it. It's like a hodgepodge. Well everything looks different near the thing I liked it. Some of the costumes are kind of scary. We're just cool. It's scary children stuff similar to return to ause one of your favorites. Yeah and and there's something a bit Henson the about my my Unicor which I I loved the the is very uppity. I'm like not to be biased. But you'll call. Shame is my favorite. What was amazing when when we got unmasked you know? There's all these photographs of the parents of their children like devastated in tears. Crying Stopping because the Unicorn got like was Dr Guess. Everyone loves a Unicorn you know it was a fan. I Ah I gotTa say you are a fan favorite. Yes Oh it was a blast much fun and I accomplished that you will separate backstage the whole time. You have another front on the show. Yeah just saying from the donets. Eric got that I heard him as you. Just hear your bids out on stage together at the end. He's got such a distinct voice and I thought that was that was him. I think the Hedgehog is Tony Hadley eight from Spandau Ballet. Taty didn't know I am calling it. I'm convinced it's Tony Happy. I love a based on dial ballet cells. I think Queen B might win but now I'm with everybody else. I have no idea what's going to happen. So it's very exciting though. Let's talk a little a bit about your process in terms of getting into character because from what you told me before you've been pretty devout in staying in character. Yeah I kind of wanted since. We're all basically glee like theme park characters. You know you know if you go out at Disneyland dressed up as seven were you gotta play the part mark so I just figured that I would do a character whenever the Unicorn left the dressing room Off Camera Yeah I would. I would like I started to try trotted everywhere Irish. Say I would communicate with my hugs Sir my host together dancing. Who've yeah I would you like a little winning and like I would do a little like like a little trick people out? Just because like you know like it'd it'd be like the the runners and stuff that are like escorting you to the stage and like I would just completely be like I did not break character the whole time a a weird so I'm just going to be weird like the opportunities just like just mess with everybody and just beasts like really silly weird with a man exactly chief. Let's really take it there but which I think was like really appreciated like I feel. La it added to the spirit of the whole thing. I don't know I it was. It was so much fun. It was so much fun and I would do it all over again. And the bizarreness is a major factor of it and the specialness of it and it really inherent to the best parts of pop. Yes yes and it's it's really funny. How in America and in the UK you know when the show debuted just like these these newspaper articles being like this is a sign of society's collapse are we we doing as a you know? This is the worst fig like Jerry Lake Real schoolmarm e hands on fs wagging finger. Yeah reviews of the show snobbery which are which is so funny because they're totally useless and it turns out that the people you really love this show people get joy from it so much bond price before anyone ever even seen Zeenat slugged to folk and like before the first episode even add because it was like The Concept Shit. What the fuck is exactly Klay but then when people watched it on my God fucking obsessed with this show and Tan the tide? 'cause it's like everyone's got an next factor everyone's got Britain's got talent American idol. Yeah and this is bizarre and so weird and so camp and so Welkom fucking obsessively comp and then it started now certainly everybody is obsessed suggestive to show and it was really really prejudged tacky garbage. Now everyone's got. Who's WHO's an ex person? WHO's this on? My God started this whole new thing and I think he's a little more fun. It's just like Glam rock and the new romantic era new wave etcetera. It's very in line with AB Yeah I think that people are now genuinely addicted to it because we want joy especially in dark political times. You know as we're in now what we're going through and we've had the cycle before and we need these things to lift us up yet agree and you are major part at that and you always have been and proud to be an always. Been Down to Jason Weird Shit and bring joy if I answer the best this way to look at the thick within bring the joy bringing Joel exactly love in a penny and then it's awesome because I get to roll it right into. It's you putting a new song out which comes out on your birthday crown. My God special for me. Thank you so much Dan. It's called meltdown and It's just like a pump in disco jam. What is such a perfect present for me? Yes yes yes. He's going to get so. I kinda keep your keep your eyes and ears and hooves open for it but yeah it'll come out February fourteenth. I'm so excited. I can't wait to play your hot new track on my birthday which I am celebrating braiding in London with Mike and Mattie. Yeah Oh we may see so much. Do I wished I could. I wish I could be there. it'd be awesome. But you know we're going to have some time soon we're gonNA see each other and reduce some fun stuff in La in Vegas. Yes yes. y'All varies is and I'm so happy we can take this little catch up chat. I love you hear me to thank you.

And and dive like, I don't know what the fuck. Great. Doing weird shit and wearing bizarre stuff. Like your like, it's the combination of things that like Noro people don't ever do. Yeah. So. Yeah. What's so gross about like, I mean, this conversation is really disgusting. But I on it used to that gross is like in, you know, I'm sure you're in situations like this as well. When like playing festivals. It's not like there's showers like, oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So like, you go out, and you basically have to just kind of like towel off. And like, you know, and then get back on the bus and go to sleep. Smelly as well. You can't there's there's it's really hard to like, babe. Sometimes sure on your like out on the road, which is. Hege sec. But he just knocked the there was the gross police. Hi, guys. This is Sam Sparrow just wanted to get in touch and love the show. Big listen, I just had a quick question. Actually, this one's for you, Craig. It's kind of been on my mind for a while. Are you gay? I mean. It's hard to tell sometimes. Anyway, let me know when you can. I mean, it's not a big deal. What? Food in the he, hey hall. Have you ever thought about singing? We were gonna talk about your your album. Yeah. But yeah, I would love to. Yeah. So you're fabulous album, which we've sorted hinted at before which is some of the material that's on it. You started writing in New Orleans. I did. Yeah. And it's it's an eleven song album runs. Just under forty five minutes in gardens. It's important. I think it's important to I believe I mean, I love I love the album format. And I know some people think it's dead. Some people do think, it's it's it's you know, it's not really how people listen to music anymore. But I love albums, and I listen to a lot of vinyl, and it was important to me kind of, you know, make make traditional odham, and I made it in a traditional way with you know, every song is one live take with a bunch of people playing together. And it was all recorded onto tape before you know, before ended up you know in in protocols. Sure. So it's got a it's got a it's got a real sound to it. And it's kind of just like how I always dreamed of of making records. So in certain ways, it's it's it's kind of the record that I've always wanted to make. I'm really really proud of it. I think it's groovy. Thank you. Thanks. I'm kind of partial to it myself. I am I've got to say though, now, I'm with all the limitations. I kind of put on myself with the record. And because there there was a philosophy kind of behind the making of it. And and and the way that it was made I'm excited to I'm excited to like make some dance music again, and and excited to to you know, I've been writing again, and sort of I don't know there's kind of a another direction I'm kind of going in at the moment that I'm really excited about you know, there's going to be there's going to actually be new music coming out sooner than later would one of those new tracks possibly be duet with someone that were all quite fond of in. Mariah carey. Known by one name over. No, totally unrelated news. You have a very exciting tour coming up in Australia idea have an exciting to are coming up. In australia. Mariah Carey with. It's the exhaustion and dehydration. Children's choir. Love children. Children's choir.

"I think it's important to have rainy days in one of the things. I love about Louisiana is the weather is incredibly dramatic is a real oak, and and and especially in the summertime, and you know, it's very temperate. And it's it's not an there's cold snaps in the winter. But never, you know, they're pretty quick. But I do love the drama of of weather. Yeah. And just like these on boars and lightning. And you know, there's there's a lot that can happen really quickly there. You know, obviously, it's a very sort of volatile place, weather wise. And I'd like that about it. They're yeah. I like that this is this is fucking opposite of that. Oh, yeah. This didn't know that after our little stretch. Cold today. It was charming December. Yeah. I think. Yeah. I mean, most of the time I like it when you can't feel the weather the when you walk outside, and you don't feel that there's you're just like Jimmy media. Like, I prefer that. Yeah. I don't know. I don't like the if I had to live in London. I would commit suicide two months you in a good longtime in London, right socially album came out. And the cold is the the the kind of cold there. It just gets it gets into your marrow. Just like, it's. You know, it sort of gets into the houses, and it's just it's drafty everywhere. And you can't it's really hard to like get get warm. You know, another thing that you have in common is that at certain point on tour. Your outfits stink. I'm thinking particular about the night work tour where you basically were neoprene. Oh, my God, it smelt like it smelt like I had like just completely peed myself and like lived in it like in a dumpster for like days. That's how bet like neoprene is not as stage material. It's just not because he sweat in it, and it's it's really gnarly. But it's I mean, yeah, I've ever smelled bad in my life. I mean, I have to wear fucking snowsuit in its in its sweat much much more than the average person. Yeah. And it's it's disgusting. If after one night, it's disgusting. It's so gross in like I've had to put on league on been on a tour. You I've had to put on tights that are still wet with. Yeah. No to meet to it's. Thing that like I mean mine end up smelling like gangrene. You know, what I imagine gangrene LA, smells, like you're putting a dead body over your, you know, on yourself, and then you hit the stage lights, and then you hit the stage. And then you're smelling yourself the whole show. And it's so I had lately in the in the shows I've been doing I've been going out in the audience. Actually made it announcement. I was like I'm really I was like I smell so bad and out to the show actually a couple of guys where like you did real. He actually did smell really bad. It's it's I mean, I have so many layers most of the time where I tried to engineer my costume. So that the outer layer or the most important layer is not in contact with either my bare crotch or my armpits. So I can I do the horse bath. And it like it really helps. And now use like fragrances that complement rather than like fight the stank Egypt. So like Woody or like earthy Tom Ford fragrances are really good for like masking. But also complementing the the b-. Oh, that's good to know. Yeah. Like like, florals, not any good leg or that kind of stuff. It's just gonna give stink flowers. But if you if you ever if a human being ever had to smell my gaffe, which is like the what's the talking pin after two weeks of no Washington in wearing like, I don't know. What would happen? Like, it's I think have base fold in on itself like Kronenbourg collapsed. I am. So I'm grows person. But in my own smell is like it. It doesn't I become like, I'm like that is very interesting. Back that it's so disgusting. But it seems dangerous. Yeah. Like, the gangrenous thing. It's like, yeah. This probably is well harmful. It's funny. You mentioned that because she gangrene will I I had this like this whole tour just had this one. You know, embellished Leotard..

God frisked you he did too because he put me in the car, go get some gas. He was like, I got a frisky before a thing about those old trucks is that it's not exactly the easiest thing to get to the gas receptacle in the car so importing the gas can into the car the Jason covered his whole cats. I regret the flashlight on them. And then later, I went I could have filmed that whole thing we have a little memento from our side of the road adventure, which I'll insert into this. Yes. Yeah. But that was that was quite I just remember Craig going. Oh my God. God crag it's going to be fine. Hi. I was like what do you do take your boots off throw them in the back? And you're like, they're fun. I was like we're going to go up like via work, and we had blankets in the you know, if worse came to worse, I was like we'll just sleep here. No, that's true. He was very good about. He was like, you know, we have blankets. There's some food and we have cigarettes. So we'll be. Yeah. And he'll work out in the end. Do you? Go. So we're. The latter part of later part of our trip to New Orleans from Kentucky, you can only see her face light of the lectures. The hazard. Let's run what's going on. We're we pulled off off onto an off ramp because we're running out of gas and took a wrong, turn and. I don't know where we are. We're out of gas. Just call the police to see maybe they could send somebody. But she wasn't sure. What county we were in. We'll be fine though. I think. We've got water we've got food p in the Bush. Got a blanket. That's true. Because. Good. Oh, man. You could see the stars. And through do you like LA moving here from New York six years ago was a really tough transition. Okay. I do love it now. And I love I love living here. I love I feel like it compliments New Orleans in a great way. Like, it's a great split between the two because they're just so completely different that when I do get tired about certain elements of either of the city's the other city remedies that really fast, I love the east side. I really I love the east side of very seldom go over to like Santa Monica kind of over to the beach. I'm not a big beach person. But I love. I just I love the gay scene here. Mum. I think there's just a lot of great people. There's a lot of great queer musicians here. I feel. I don't know. I have got a lot of great friends here. And and I've really enjoyed how about you. Yeah. I mean, it's the weather can't beat the weather. Yeah. I think that's like the most important thing. Do you ever though feel like I don't know how to describe this win it sunny all the time. Do you remember when you know, you're in elementary school, and you're sick at home, and you're inside and he really went or you've pretended to be sick. Oh, yeah. You're you're inside, and it's like a sunny day outside and everyone's kind of at work or school. So there's like nobody in if feels like no one's really around and feel really isolated and it's like, but still it's beautiful day. But you can't sort of be out in it. I don't know. Sometimes I have that. I don't know how to describe it. But I have that feeling in LA says Christmas in LA when you just things exactly. Yeah. I I've experienced this. There's a tension between the the weather outside does not reflect all my internal weather, and like if I'm having a bad day urban, a bad mood, and and goes on. Sunny today. You know, that that I was like, you know, what it's like not enough. Yeah. Like enough that they son becomes like, it just becomes annoying. Grading in an in the field.

They're just back. It's very conservative. Although I gotta say about Louisiana and something I'm really interested in exploring more is there. The rural. The rules are the rural areas of of Louisiana by Lafayette, and you know, when you get outside of those cities all my God, it is staggeringly beautiful. It's just one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and I love driving outside of New Orleans and kind of just looking at the landscape because there's nothing like it. We have rural. Mississippi River rural Mississippi. We had a little car trip. Rural Mississippi random. Driving? Try just learned to drive. Stick just got the car that before and just learned the day. And just learn drove us from Louisville Kentucky to to Mississippi. And then we. We read. Tricky bought was so old that there's none of the modern. Conveniences you've used to like a ding, ding, ding or like tank like immediately. Down to nothing. And I was like oh my God. We gotta pull up at the next exit, and we just turned the wrong way. And ended up going. We had like on a map like thinking was a gestation, and it was in the middle of the night, and we like rounded this corner. And it was like arm silos. It was farmed silos and no service and the cards. The car stopped. And there was no there weren't even any. There's no cars we waited at fifteen to twenty minutes later, one car came by just zoom by and one person did kind of stop after we figured out. Let's call the police.

"Well. Gate. But I mean, what kind of guys you to you know. And it's really what I've observed is like there's this one particular go, I haven't had a crush on some of your longtime. But it's like it's kind of this open ended. It's not like I'm not trying to avoid the question of what's my sexual preference. I'm just I'm I'm not in a hurry to answer it like that kind of kind of attitude, which I really like it's like being open. And I truly open. There's you know, I this the last the last few years, I had a had a, you know, a really amazing friendship that was sort of different than than anything. I've ever had with somebody. With a guy that was non sexual yet was you know, incredibly intimate someone that basically is you know, for lack of a better word. I don't mean to pigeonhole him. But, but, you know, a straight guy, and and we, you know, we've we've had a very awesome special friendship that definitely goes beyond go. It's like in another territory, but it's you know, kind of unlike anything I've I've experienced before. And it's it actually was really great for me because it was sort of what I needed most in my life at that time. I mean, I just blow it up from my partner of eleven years. And here was somebody that I could be incredibly intimate with that, you know, loved me and loves me. And and likewise and just. Being able to spend time with somebody in this sort of like almost like boyfriends in a way, but not having to, but but the sort of the sexual side of is it's just it's not there. But I didn't at that time. It's like I didn't I didn't need I didn't need to be having a sexual relationship with somebody aided that kind of like intimate attention. And that that that real like, you know, love from someone the close acceptance. Yeah. As well, especially and it's it's just interesting because I don't think that it's. In this moment in time. Now, I think you know, men or people or a little bit more open to to different kinds of really because if you were to look at that from the outside, it'd be like, oh, those, you know, if guys are they're like hooking up there. Like, you know, what's up with that? You know, we're like he doesn't really know. Yeah. He's used or but, but no, I think that it's I think that there's definitely a a lot more elbow room now for all kinds of relationships that aren't even necessarily sexual between men. Yeah. You know, we mentioned New Orleans. So let's talk a little bit about how your love affair with New Orleans because you would just flip from Chris. I just split from. Yeah. My partner, Chris.

"I mean, when I first came out was it was really dangerous, and I was in a place that I shouldn't I shouldn't have come out at Mountain View high school in Mesa Arizona amount. It's it's it's it's funny. I've actually gotten I've gotten messages from people that have been really moving people that I don't know that that have written me. And Ben like, I was I was in your biology class. And you know, I saw what was happening to you. And I never stepped in. No, well, you know, I've I've got multiple messages from from different people that sort of were there and saw you know, I was only the schools three thousand kids just about twenty five hundred kids, and I was the only the only out student she and the entire school. So I was I was I just had a, you know, I was a target. Sure. For for love for. I was at time by love. Do we all know what that's like anybody ever any of the roads ever try to get you to suck their weenies? No. I'm I mean. Yeah, I'm trying maybe not though. I mean, definitely, bro. Dudes in my in my lifetime. And yeah. In my in, my younger days, and in college, you know, I- I sucked a lot of bro. Weenies? Yeah. Remember single out Persson in my high school experience, not one it was just not really there's don't do. It wasn't done. It wasn't. It wasn't done. I graduated high school in ninety six and I came out in my sophomore year of high school which would have been like ninety three ninety two ninety three. It seems like almost a century's worth of difference between. Yeah. Yeah. Just between ninety five twenty fifteen like shit. Yes. It size of chain. I mean, even like teeth. I think about scissor sisters and. You know, a two thousand four when we came out and two thousand nineteen we're coming up to now in the cultural landscape for you know, what we were doing. And then you look at like the cultural significance of drag race. And the that's had on on the world end to young people and kids. It's great people identifying and feeling that alone. Yes. Because of that. Yes. I really liked the I really like the the the growing amount of people like boys, especially who were. These seem to be uninterested in identifying with the sexual preference like a m-, not gay. I'm not straight up like there's pan sexual or whatever. But it it's it's less of it's much less fixated on an agenda or on a specific specific like you're gay, you're straight or like that dichotomy which is very cool. That's more realistic. Yeah. Sure. Because I mean, I. You know, I think everybody's on a spectrum. I unfortunately am on the far side of the spectrum. You know on the Kinsey scale six, and I really wish I wasn't, you know, but I do think that there's plenty of people out there that that you know, that aren't a one or a six, in fact, I think probably like a, you know, pardon the expression, but a Butler. I think that's. You know, I think I think a lot of people in somewhere around around there. So it makes it makes it kind of sense. I think that you know, we've had to identify identify as gay and lesbian, or if you know for for for survival and away and in the past, and I think that that's probably changing, and that's probably younger people feel different about it. And it's very it's very interesting. I it sexy. I live in New Orleans part-time and and. One of the things I love about just the the the culture down there is especially kind of you know, sort of the local. There's this great kind of like. Burlesque queer sex worker universe down there. That's really great. And yeah, it's very superfluid. And you know, there's there's the guys down there. You can't really pigeonhole, but they can't really pin down like, and I think that's really high. I think it's very sexy. I do too. Yeah. No, go ahead, while I was just going to say, you know, I fit right into a shoebox, unfortunately. But what we know? I I agree. I think it's really sexy. And also I've observed that there's many guys that I've I've met in the last year. So like you want your brain wants to put them in his shoe box. Because you wanna try on those shoes? You know?.

And you know, I came my mom and dad that night was before or after the show as before the show to my mom and then. It was an intense. Yeah. It was intense night. And then you know, my dad was really kinda staying out of it. And then my mom, and I got in a fight afterwards in a verbal altercation sort of the Haagen-Dazs of the MGM grand excel. And he know what it was it was tough. But when I got back to Seattle at the time, I was working for like a queer youth outreach program where we would throw queer youth parties. And and it was all sort of about passing on information about safer sex. And and Dan was our guest host and Danny's to drag along time ago. So it was Dan in you know, it was in drag drag new Danielle just I think the L savage so vase, the buzz. And he he approached him. And I was like, I'm I'm the guy. He's been I'm the kid who's been calling into your show for the last, you know, six months, and and I just came out to my parents. And they're, you know, they're they're kind of freaking out, and that's how we met, and you know, he's just kind of become family. Oh, he and his husband Terry, and I've known them.

He's such a brilliant. Man. I think he's a great American man of letters. He's a fantastic prolific writer with with you know, he's a real thinker. So it was really inspiring to me as a, you know, as a young person to be friends with him and just sort of get, you know, a really positive attention from from someone like that. Would your mom say boo was issue? I think that she was you know, I think my parents were very scared. This was nineteen ninety sort of been ninety four ninety five and you know, which was a really a very different time for for for gay men for queer people. You know, I think they were really still were really scared for me. It was a scary. It was it was a scary time. Sure. And you know, but what they didn't, you know? I I was very active in the queer community, and I was very aware of of of the lay the land. And I was I was, you know, involved in these organizations that were you know, helping pass on the information or safer sex. I was very much like, you know, already sort of steeped in the yeah. And and and knew what was going on. And you know, was just was already part of gay culture. So I was a lot less naive than my parents probably thought I was okay. You weren't some helpless little kid. Who's just like? Yeah. No. Yeah. I was very I was I was I was you know, I was a pretty I'd seen a lot by the time. I was sixteen years old. You know, because you were also an outsider into high school, right? Yes. Yes. For the for early high school kind of when I was first coming out once I ended up in Seattle. My last. Couple years of high school. I really kind of blossomed, and it was in a great spot for you. You'll be gay people not care at high school the last couple of years to school..

It is very distinct and capable ARA to present to you the complex multi talents of musical sensation and worldwide global phenomenon known as. Share? Welcome. Welcome news. So thank you for having me. God is one of my favorite songs. That's right. What's that? From for those for those who don't know that is the the the welcome to New York song from the crocodile Dundee soundtrack the score from crocodile Dundee is really one of my favorite scores of all time. It's actually a great record and fun at parties as well. It is fun at parties. Indeed, Paul HOGAN, it's Paul HOGAN. And then what's the woman's name? Linda, Linda Evangelista. No Lynn lenient day, get married or did they got married and they got divorced. And I think it's a it was Hogan's like six marriage. He had another wife that he had divorced and married. A second time. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. He's a very interesting Keri got a little gnarly. I think. Yeah. I think all this marriage is I think really went dark after a while. I did it all I think they just. Split amicably after a certain period of time because all different paths. Fire the flame of love. Sometimes just you know, burns out on its own. Yeah. I can see three tents in the Paul HOGAN household for some reason. I would enjoy I'm just gonna come out and say it I would really enjoy watching having a screening of crocodile Dundee three who was that crocodiles in space. Crocks? One where does that take place? There's no gravity. I I don't I don't even. I don't even know if it I mean, I never saw to just remember when it like it did have a theatrical run, unfortunately. And actually, I know way too much about it at for not having. No, well, so the two writers that were hired to write the thing wrote this full scripted. They didn't want to do it. But they were kinda struggling in their career. Right. So he got this gig. And Ben Paul HOGAN was like, okay, we're going to do a little rewrite. He changed basically if the scene was HOGAN walks into the kitchen, grabs a knife each. It's like walks into the bathroom, grabs a toothbrush like change, nothing except certain words, and and look Asians. Then he tried to have the screenplay registered under his name. So for screenwriter credit? What happens is if you write something, and you don't get screen credit. You don't get residuals. Right. And you don't really get paid that. Well, so those guys had to take him to whatever writer court for the writers guild and the writers one and then HOGAN appealed, oh my God. They want to. He appealed again and then on the promotional tour. He started just calling them out. So he like fully went nuts on these guys. And yet they really like Meg reasonable person. Does. I mean how much money is there? Get to further residuals of crocodile Dundee three is my question, especially after he owned crocodile Dundee like that he owned that. So he made at least fifty percent of the total prophets of that. And the second one. So we didn't need that money. Would you have sex with him that character, I would have sex with that character? Not now, then what kind of bar? Do you think he'd beat him in because there's a quite a bar scene in crocodile Dundee, really? There's a horrible bar scene in cargo. But I think in the you know, if I was in the outback. Yeah. Like in a you know in kind of a dusty saloon or something and crocodile Dundee walked in. I'd let them throw it on me. But if you would if you bumped into him like on a busy street in New York City. When he's still the fish out of water. It's the summer. He's wearing a vest with. No starting. He's got the knife. I'd still probably hook up with him. Yeah. Totally. I mean, you know, I it during that era. Yeah. He was really hot. Yeah. I bet his as penises is is very like hard and hot hard and hot. So you're saying it's very very. Do you think? Do you think he takes the Alice?.
