Look, the Scottish are known for their banter, that’s a fact. And it turns out that no matter how successful and famous you are, you still maintain that inherent knack for being absurdly hilarious. Maybe it’s the accent or the fact that no Scot whatsoever seems to simply give a shit, but singer Lewis Capaldi 100% maintains that image and I for one am deeply thankful for it.
A video recently surfaced of the 22-year-old lad getting all chuffed about hitting #1 in the album charts with his debut record, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, and he proceeded to flip off records of bands like The Killers and LCD Soundsystem.
Which got me thinking, pretty much everything that Lewis Capaldi posts online is really fucking funny. Does he have a media manager? Who knows! Who even gives a shit at this point! Let the man do whatever he pleases because it’s working.
Now, please join me as I present to you observational evidence as to why Lewis Capaldi is a funny fucker, who should be cherished and protected at all costs.

At the end of the day, Lewis Capaldi truly is an artisté, and should be enshrined in Glasgow‘s town hall or something. Or at least on the mantle at Scottish Banter.
I also wish to be his friend please and also, thank you.
