To say we like playing the role of the BuyMyFace boys would be an understatement – we love it! So imagine our delight when the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympics Committee got in touch to ask us if we would serve as the UK ambassadors to the Games.
Yesterday, in Westminster Central Hall, we took our-painted-selves to receive the honour from Nanjing’s best and brightest. Among these were China’s UK ambassador, a billionaire who must not be named, and various other important looking people. Feeling like we couldn’t possibly fit in better, Ed and I rocked up in our extra large ‘Discover Jiangsu’ t-shirts, and, in front of more cameras than is safe to flash at once, we were inaugurated.
A few interviews with Chinese Central Television (CCTV), and a colourful selection of finger-foods later, the international adventure was over. But not before we all exchanged the pleasantry, “see you in Nanjing”. If that’s not an invitation for a free trip to China, I don’t know what is.
See you in Nanjing!
