Today’s animated gif features more comedy from that zany duo, Sir Guy of Gisborne and the Sheriff of Nottingham! Richard Armitage and Keith Allen played very well off each other in the BBC series Robin Hood.
Our graphic designer today is fitzg. She had ideas for several gifs and finally decided on the scene of Guy waving at the sheriff when they were trying to bump each other off.
I am very amused by this screencap from Robin Hood series 3, episode 6. Notice the similarity in the expressions of the sheriff and Sir Guy!
Fitzg wrote, “RH 3. Gisborne wiggles his fingers with a smirk at the sheriff, as they’ve just failed to kill each other. Just thought it so hilarious, especially as RA had just said in interview that he is so not funny. Yes he is.”
Here is your animated gif:
Fitzg also came up with the caption, “Have a nice day!”
As I was creating the animated gif I remembered that directly after this sequence, the sheriff shoots an arrow at Guy. But the arrow is intercepted by a villager who is shot instead. What’s funny about that is that the villager was trying to kill Guy, but is instead killed himself! Okay, I know that wouldn’t be funny in real life, but in the context of the show it was quite amusing!
