Gerard Butler has no time for cockney slang in “Late Late Show” sketch
In the scene, Corden plays a London fruit vendor who happens to see a criminal come running past his fruit stand. Butler appears and demands to know where the criminal went.
Corden is happy to help. The only problem is he speaks in cockney rhyming slang.
Things only get more confusing from there. Butler is left scratching his head trying to figure out where the crook went when Corden tells him things like “bleeding lurch,” “rub a dub dub” and “Michael Caine.”
Good thing Butler will be relying on his fighting skills rather than his ability to decipher cockney when “London Has Fallen” opens this weekend.
