ICYMI: The cast of The Boys were recently in town to promote Season 3 which just kicked off on Amazon Prime Video.
Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, Chace Crawford, Claudia Doumit and Jessie T Usher flew Down Under last week to promote the new season.
While they were here, they attended a special VIP screening of episode 4 where they sat down for a sweet Q&A sesh.

In the episode titled ‘Glorious Five Year Plan’, A-Train (Jessie T Usher) featured in an ad as part of his rebrand. The ad is for a soft drink brand called Turbo Rush.
In the ad, A-Train happens upon a protest, where police in riot gear are standing by on patrol.
A-Train intervenes by using his super speed to run over to the police officers and he hands them a can of Turbo Rush. After taking a sip, the whole scene suddenly turns into a party.

Sound familiar? Well it should. It’s a straight-up parody of the infamous Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad that caused a ton of backlash back in 2017.
The day after the VIP screening, I interviewed the cast and, of course, had to quiz them about the hysterical moment.
Here’s what they had to say…
PTV: OK, we have to talk about that Kendall Jenner scene. What was your reaction when you saw that in the script?
JACK: Reading it is one thing, seeing it was another. Seeing how it was executed was perfect. I was cackling, it was amazing. It was so good.
KAREN: It might be one of my favourite moments. I live for those satirical moments.
JESSIE T: Believe it or not that was intercut into the episode as like bonus content.
CHACE: Oh really!? That was just bonus content? Oh it’s so good in the show!
JESSIE T: Yeah! The script just implied that they wanted to show some footage in there but we didn’t know what they wanted it to be.
CHACE: It probably just turned out so great that they had to put it in there. It was the highlight of that episode, for sure.
PTV: Do you think it will offend her?
JACK: Yeah, probably. Yeah.
KAREN: Do you think so!? I thought it was funny!
JACK: I don’t think it was a direct shot at her, I think it’s more the corporatisation of a cause. But on every level, that sequence just hits.
Welp, given that Kendall Jenner was apparently mad butthurt about people mocking her cucumber cutting skills, something tells me she probs won’t take kindly to this.
But, I mean, play stupid games etc etc.
The Boys Season 3 is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, with new eps dropping weekly.
The full interview is coming soon to PEDESTRIAN.TV.
