Try and stay calm, but Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Andrew Scott (AKA the Hot Priest) were caught handing out cans of gin to thirsty fans.
Only Fleabag fans will understand the gravity of this situation. Free gin! From the Hot Priest! In real life! I think I need a sit down… 🥵
The stunt pays homage to the iconic scene, when the Hot Priest (Andrew Scott) offers Fleabag (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) a can of G&T from M&S. It became such an important TV moment that it sparked a 24% rise in sales of the drink.
Just yesterday (September 7), the pair were spotted handing out these exact cans to fans queueing outside Wyndham’s Theatre, where Waller-Bridge is currently performing Fleabag live on stage. Of course the moment went viral almost immediately:

Damn I wasn’t ready for Hot Priest in a sexy college boyfriend sweatshirt. https://t.co/SS7vYpc5xh
