Did anyone else hear this earlier this evening? Robbie Williams investigating the paranormal, a subject which has apparently long fascinated him? I ask because, during the programme, Robbie and co-presenter Jon Ronson meet Ann Andrews, a woman who believes (or claims to believe) that her son, Jason, is an “indigo child” sent to heal Planet Earth. She also claims that he is regularly abducted by aliens and that she has photos of these incidents but that the quality of the photos is poor because “she only has a disposable camera”. Robbie’s friend (can’t remember his name) asks her why she doesn’t get a better camera. She replies that she is hopeless with “anything technological”.
What I really want to know though is this: was I the only cruel bitch who, towards the end of the programme, laughed out loud at the following exchange?:
Ann Andrews: You look like Robbie Williams.
RW: I AM Robbie Williams.
AA: I thought you were but I didn’t want to say anything in case I looked stupid…
Like I said, cruel but I couldn’t help it. Poor woman.
P.S Doesn’t Jon Ronson have an irritating voice? Or is that just me as well?
