While talking about Taylor Swift’s music video for Anti-Hero:

Abhinandan: Taylor Swift is a great name for the guy who makes my kurta-pyjamas.

Rajyasree: Tailor Swift. Is he swift?

Abhinandan: Because if I tell him today, tomorrow or day after he'll give my pathaan suit.

Abhinandan and Rajyasree burst out laughing.

This and a whole lot of stuff awful and awesome as Abhinandan Sekhri and Rajyasree Sen review the series Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities; Rihanna’s new single Lift Me Up; Taylor Swift’s Anti-Hero music video; the Cadbury Diwali ad controversy; and Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir Spare.

PS: Listen to Abhinandan’s version of Rihanna’s new song.
