Two of the internet’s favorite crushes — Normal People‘s Connell Waldron, played by Paul Mescal, and Fleabag‘s Hot Priest, played by Andrew Scott — bonded over love and lust in a new sketch for RTÉ One’s Comic Relief raising money for COVID-19 aid. Oh, and Normal People’s Marianne Sheridan, played by Daisy Edgar-Jones, shows up as well.
The sketch begins with Connell lamenting his complicated love. And Hot Priest replying simply, “Tell me about it.” And when Connell talks about the “physical side of things” being great, Hot Priest laughs along knowingly.
Eventually, things go off the rails as Hot Priest starts ranting about being tested by God and tricked into “believing in goodness itself.” And it’s right then that Marianne shows up — and all of a sudden she and Connell can’t help but talk over the priest.
You’ve got to watch the whole thing to see how it plays out.
