The Libertines share the second episode of their puppet show ‘Skint and Minted’

The Libertines have shared the second episode of their new online puppet show Skint and Minted which is bizarre and brilliant in equal measure.

The four-and-a-half-minute skit begins with an introduction with drummer Gary Powell who is self-described as “the coolest fucking drummer in the history of rock and fucking roll,” which is greeted by bucketloads of canned laughter.

After Barat enters, he explains that he’s concerned about Doherty going “off the rails,” to which Powell jokes, “Was he even on ’em?” adding: “All publicity is good publicity.”

“Fuck off Carl,” Doherty greets Barat as he enters the scene. He then goes on to say that he’s been in New York partying with his former girlfriend, supermodel Kate Moss and that he was given a full cavity search by customs upon returning to the UK.

“Imagine having a hand up your jacksie,” Barat says. “You don’t have to imagine it,” Doherty jokes, “some twat’s got his hand up there right now.”
