The Moth Affair

Episode 3 of 6

Anarchic, surreal sitcom. Julie tries to generate publicity for her bistro. When a pop star resembling Erik emerges, Beef thinks planting Erik there will do the job.

Julie asks Vic to create a promotional video for her new bistro, but Vic writes the script for the video on the wings of a moth with very particular eating habits which flies off and takes up residence in their kitchen.

Meanwhile, a pop star with a striking resemblance to Erik has arrived in the country causing a media stir. This gives Beef an idea and they decide to plant Erik in the cafe to generate publicity. But the news story takes an unexpected turn when a mystery beast is seen flying towards the bistro.
