Gervais is seen sitting alone and busy with his cell phone. While his eyes are focusing on the phone screen, Pepino Rodrigo Serrano Gonzales a.k.a Pepe the King Prawn approaches the actor and sits next to him. There's a moment of silence between them before Pepe breaks it up as asking, "Twitter?"

Instead of giving a long and friendly respond, Gervais nods his head a little and says, "Yep," and continues tweeting. After experiencing the very awkward moment, the two finally leave their chair and go to the opposite directions.
