  • - I love it.

  • I love this series.

  • - We love it when people go

  • (lips smacking)

  • yourselves. - Yourselves, yeah.

  • - So we should call this question

  • - [Both] Ask yourselves.

  • (laughter)

  • - Yeah, ask your--

  • - It's just ask yourse-- (burping)

  • - Did a Prosecco burp, I'm so sorry.

  • - Darling.

  • - One must never do that when drinking Prosecco.

  • - No, you literally must never burp during Prosecco.

  • - I know, only after.

  • - Only after.

  • - Right, where did we get to? - Right.

  • Okay.

  • - Did we do a teaser?

  • We didn't, did we?

  • - No, but that's fine - That's fine.

  • - 'cause this is gonna start on a high.

  • So as Joel said, welcome back to the series

  • where you ask yourselves a question.

  • This is where we ask ourselves stuff,

  • discover more about our morals, moral compass.

  • - Yeah.

  • - You know, our opinions on things

  • and it's also where you can sort of

  • ask yourself the same question and think about your answer.

  • - Yeah, and we can all chat with each other down below

  • in the comments and exchange ideas and thoughts and beliefs.

  • It's just a really cool place. - Just something to do really.

  • - Yeah it is. - Just something to do.

  • - Something to do.

  • - We like to our drinks, just relax a bit

  • whilst we're doing it.

  • Right, this one's juicy.

  • Ready? - Okay, go on.

  • - Would you rather be, I love a would you rather,

  • - Yeah.

  • - extremely successful professionally and have a tolerable

  • yet unexciting private life,

  • - Okay.

  • - or have an extremely happy private life

  • and only a tolerable and uninspiring professional life?

  • - I know immediately my answer.

  • - I know what your answer is.

  • - You know what my answer is.

  • I know what your answer is.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Mine is to have a very-- - Wait what's mine?

  • - I think yours is the opposite of mine.

  • - Same.

  • - Oh, I want have a tolerable and

  • unexciting personal life

  • but a very successful professional life.

  • Because I think you spend most of your life at work

  • - Yeah, you do!

  • - and I feel like just because you're,

  • it's not saying you have a bad personal life,

  • it's saying it's tolerable and unexciting and actually

  • our professional life is very exciting.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So I quite like the unexciting parts

  • of my private life, because we do have our--

  • - 'Cause we just indulge in the

  • every day-- - Um hmm.

  • - I think it's the sort of magic of the ordinary.

  • Like, yeah, I'm just gonna go home and cook dinner now.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Like, we've just been at an amazing thing all day

  • and we're really lucky and grateful to be around

  • the people that we get to be around and stuff,

  • but then we just go and we do something just really ordinary

  • - Yeah. - or have very--

  • - And the ordinary then becomes really fun

  • 'cause once we've been to events and in a row

  • if it's like a premier and then a press launch for something

  • and then this, they're amazing things that

  • we're so grateful for, but then you just are like,

  • I just wanna have a night in that's literally do nothing.

  • - Get takeaway and do nothing.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Yeah, definitely.

  • - So I thought you were gonna say the other way around.

  • - I don't know, Joel.

  • I would love to have an extremely happy private life

  • but I don't want an uninspiring professional life.

  • - Yeah, no one does.

  • - No one does, 'cause I know what you said is true

  • that you spend a lot of your time at work.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So if the majority of your time is spent at work unhappy,

  • and it's sort of like uninspiring

  • (lips vibrating)

  • job, but then your private life,

  • you end up living for the weekends

  • - Yeah.

  • - and living for those happy times when--

  • I don't know, it's a really hard one but I think

  • - It is.

  • - overall I'd prefer a really exciting professional life.

  • - I think so 'cause I know we don't do these,

  • yeah but I would then do this,

  • we don't pick it apart.

  • (sneezes)

  • - Please excuse me.

  • (laughter)

  • - You haven't sneezed all night

  • and you do it when we're in a rush.

  • (laughter)

  • - [Lia] So sorry darling.

  • - It's okay.

  • - [Lia] I have to just,

  • I had to take a moment.

  • - At least it wasn't on the live stream.

  • - [Lia] Do you know what, that's so true.

  • - Yeah.

  • I know we weren't gonna pick it apart and say,

  • yeah but what if I do this. - Yeah.

  • - But like you would then naturally probably involve--

  • Your personal life would become your professional life.

  • - Yeah I get that, I feel that

  • and one of the books I'm reading, it's like,

  • don't make your life so compartmentalized.

  • - Oh yeah. - It's like,

  • that's your work life, this is your home life,

  • when it's all just your life, really.

  • - Yeah. That's a good way to think of it.

  • - It's like us going on a work trip

  • but then we've done our work and we extend our holiday

  • - Yeah.

  • - And have like a personal life holiday.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So we're in L.A. but just like,

  • alright cool, our work's done, an extra week.

  • - Yeah yeah.

  • - It can be fun, can't it?

  • - It like melds together, yeah.

  • - Yeah.

  • That's what you get for sneezing out your live.

  • - Okay.

  • - Okay?

  • Oh, what should I wish?

  • - Blow, make a wish.

  • - Um...

  • I have to be more specific.

  • - We're in a rush.

  • (laughter)

  • So we take forever.

  • (blows)

  • - It's not working. - Oh its stuck.

  • It's stuck, it's not gonna come true.

  • (blows)

  • Joel, if it doesn't blow off its not coming true.

  • (blows)

  • Oh it's never gonna happen! (laughter)

  • - Come on!

  • (blows)

  • Yes, it's gone. - It's gonna happen.

  • - Right, it's ready to be hoovered up by the maid.

  • (laughter)

  • Not our maid.

  • - She calls her cleaner "the maid", its so funny.

  • - But not "the maid", "my maid".

  • - "My maid's not coming 'til Tuesday."

  • - She's not your maid, she's probably lots of people's maid.

  • - Yeah. - I know, let me ask you one.

  • Right, so, this is a juicy one.

  • - Mmm.

  • - If at birth you could select the profession

  • your child would eventually pursue, would you do so?

  • - If I had the choice to say that

  • my child could be a

  • - Yeah. - a successful

  • - Yeah.

  • music artist or a--

  • (sighs)

  • Do you know what, morally it's wrong isn't it?

  • Because you need to let the child grow up,

  • decide what they're into and then do it.

  • - Yeah.

  • - But on the other hand, most people don't really know

  • what they want out of life anyway.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So imagine if you said,

  • I know decisions are hard,

  • I struggle with decisions

  • so you're probably gonna have my genetics

  • so I've decided you're gonna be the next Adele.

  • - There you go.

  • - Congratulations on your number one album!

  • - Yeah 'cause how could they complain about that?

  • If you were like,

  • you're gonna be the most successful sporting person

  • in the world, you'd be like, or whatever it is--

  • - You're gonna be an olympian gold medalist.

  • - Yeah, how could they complain about that?

  • - You're gonna be amazing at swimming.

  • They might just be like I hate water.

  • But we wouldn't know that until they're older, would we?

  • - No, you would just still

  • push them in the swimming pool, swim!

  • - It's like pushy parents, what would you do?

  • - I don't think I would.

  • I would like to because I think part of the joy for me

  • was that I chose my profession of what I wanted to pursue

  • and it was so different to anyone in my family

  • had done before and I really love that.

  • - Yeah.

  • - But the fear, I guess for all parents, is that

  • your child will just be uninspired and unambitious

  • and will just settle for the bare minimum

  • and I wouldn't want that.

  • So if my child was gonna be like that,

  • I would want to choose their profession.

  • - Yeah.

  • - But I would hold out for the fact

  • that my child would be like me

  • and they'd be a bit ambitious.

  • - Really? - Um hmm.

  • - For instance, I personally would never let

  • my child be a YouTuber.

  • - Oh, I wouldn't not let them.

  • If they wanted to I'd let them do it.

  • I wouldn't say you can not be it.

  • But I wouldn't be like,

  • yeah, be a YouTuber--

  • - Joel, would you struggle if they were

  • more successful than your platform?

  • - Absolutely, my child can not be more successful than me.

  • (laughter)

  • - So they can't be a YouTuber then?

  • - But you know how every parent

  • wants their child to be more successful

  • than them and they're rooting for them?
