So we were pleased to see that Braff gives London a good write up in his popular Garden State blog.
“What an amazing city.” Braff writes. “I can’t wait to come back here and spend some real time walking around when I’m not required to do 4000 interviews a day in the same dark hotel room.”
Braff also perpetuates some common ‘myths’ about the city’s residents: “The people here are very polite and they absolutely love to drink. It seems like every activity is based around when you’ll drink next…They love “Friends” here. I swear, if you flick channels, ‘Friends’ is on at all times of the day. There’s like ‘Friends’ channels!”
That’ll be Channel 4 then.
But the best thing about Braff’s report is his delight over our national slang words:
“I learned a great expression today. ‘Fit’ It means hot! Some reporter told me he thought Nat was ‘fit.’ I said I think she works out, but I’m not sure how fit she is. No, he said- hot! I like that; I’m bringing ‘fit’ home.”
If he gets that excited over ‘fit’, imagine what he’ll be like if he ever hears ‘chav’.
