  • We are here in Piccadilly Circus to ask the people of London which possession would they never lend to another person.

  • I would never lend my microphone

  • because it's dirty, disgusting,

  • because I beatbox into it all the time like

  • (starts beatboxing)

  • and if it happened to that,

  • if I used that, that would get dirty as well

  • so, yea I wouldn't lend that to anyone

  • Do you not clean your microphone?

  • I do I have to do that everyday but it's still filthy.

  • I'm here with Jim and we're asking Jim

  • what he would never lend to anyone

  • So, hi Jim.

  • What would you never lend to anyone?

  • I think my pillow. Yeah I wouldn't lend my pillow to someone

  • Why not?

  • You're sleeping on it all night

  • you don't want someone else's, you know...

  • All up in...all up in your face.

  • Yeah I think pillow.

  • Are you emotionally attached to your pillow?

  • Yeah, yeah okay

  • ...his walking stick!

  • My phone

  • Okay, why?

  • Too many secrets.

  • No, just never give away your phone I think.

  • Mine's my knives cause I'm a chef

  • I don't know just carry random knives round with me

  • I'm not like that

  • but I have chef knives so I never let anyone use them.

  • That makes sense.

  • cause I don't want them to ruin them and they're expensive, so

  • I hate people using my knives. I get very...

  • He won't even let me use them.

  • I don't lend anyone

  • He wouldn't let me use them

  • I would never lend, as bizarre as it is, my Buzz Lightyear toy cos my Grandad gave me that before he passed away.

  • My uncle passed away as well but I've still got his old-school kind of bourbon Chelsea boots

  • so I wouldn't lend them to anyone

  • but apart from that I'm pretty comfortable with

  • anyone borrowing anything apart from probably them two bits.

  • What is one possession or one item of yours that you would never lend to another person?

  • that you would never lend to another person?

  • My makeup brushes, I don't like it.

  • I'm the same.

  • [Laughter]

  • Well no, like they just use them in the wrong way

  • and then they make all the bristles go funny

  • Okay,

  • No...

  • Yeah, I feel you.

  • Kimchi

  • Kimchi!

  • You would never lend your Kimchi?

  • Yeah

  • Okay,

  • The food, Kimchi?

  • Yeah

  • You would never give that to someone else.

  • Okay, cool.

  • Mascara

  • Your mascara. And why?

  • Because you can get sties and it's pretty gross.

  • Sty. What is a sty?

  • It's like a little bump that you get on your eye, like an eye infection.

  • It's not an eye infection.

  • Well, it's like when bacteria builds up and then you get this little thing..right..

  • Girls know all about it and for me it's eyeliner

  • because I just had a sty

  • which is why she is saying that

  • I just had a sty and so, don't share your eye products with other females.

  • Never share your eye products with other females.

  • Okay ladies?
