Most friendships start off with having something in common. For straight men, sometimes it’s sports, cars or some other hobby. In this case, it’s a penis. According to Kit Harington, his schlong was the catalyst for his friendship with Ed Sheeran.
During his appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the 30-year-old actor shared an amusing story regarding their first encounter. They hit it off when the “Shape Of You” singer sneaked a peek at the Game of Thrones actor’s penis. Can you blame him? I would too.
“We had an odd first meeting… I was in a men’s urinal taking a piss. You know, sometimes a guy comes up to you, next to you, and sort of does a double-take while you’re taking a piss,” Kit said. “And then he looks back forward and then he looks at your todger and then he looks back at you and says, ‘Are you Jon Snow?’… That guy was Ed Sheeran.”
Don’t attempt this icebreaker should you find yourself at side by side urinals with Jon Snow. Unless you have a few platinum records under your belt, I’d advise proceeding with caution. “I nearly said, ‘Off, mate,’ but it was Ed Sheeran and now we’re friends,” Harington shared.
