WATCH: Gordon Ramsay and Kevin Spacey Go To War in Epic Swear-Off
Gordon Ramsay is definitely a staple in modern online meme and internet culture, and he’s managed to become one of the most recognisable chef’s in the world. He didn’t earn this reputation just by cooking a solid lasagne, he mainly earned it by telling both professional and aspiring chefs how it really was, and in really entertaining ways. Pair him together with Kevin Spacey, star of the super popular ‘House of Cards’ franchise, and you’ve got a great recipe for Internet gold.
TV’s favourite foul-mouth chef has teamed up with Fox to produce a series entitled “The F Word”. Unlike the the UK TV series of the same name, it will be screened live to air on Fox in the US, starting May 31st.
At it’s core, it’s still a cooking show, but possibly one we might not cringe at when someone steals the remote to change channels. Perhaps some of us might actually learn to cook? Several celebrity guests have already been lined up for the show.
Despite numerous pushes to have Ramsay forced off the air from concerned groups, and even Ramsay himself saying that he plans to “quit” swearing, there’s no holding back in this promotional short.
And rightfully so. Who gives a shit. Gordon Ramsay is a man who was once doused in petrol and held at gunpoint whilst exposing illegal fishing ring for a TV show! That’s gotta give him some credit in the swear jar, right?
Ramsay believes he’s got the ‘fuck off’ mastered, but Spacey doesn’t appear to appreciate his suggestion, and is definitely thinking, ‘nah fuck you Gordo’. There’s clearly a fine art to delivering the perfect ‘fuck off’, and neither of these gentlemen are strangers to the practice. Who can objectively say one ‘fuck off’ is necessarily better than another?
Spacey is no stranger to foul language either, with an extensive acting career in which he’s convincingly played some pretty scary characters, including in the Netflix series, House of Cards.
Ramsay also drops a nice promo for Kevin’s upcoming play, Clarence Darrow, playing at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York in June.
No word on an Australian airing of the series yet, but in the mean-time here’s Gordon Ramsay and Kevin Spacey saying fuck like two 8 year olds who’ve just learnt a new swear word.
