The gang’s misadventures down under seem to involve gimp masks, Hitler moustaches, a decent stash of cocaine and a beloved family ram — pretty much an average night out in Basildon. The really strange thing however, is that the boys seem concerned about coming off as crass and uncouth in front of the Australian in-laws. As if any Aussie would be shocked by men getting drunk and naked at a wedding…
