Watch Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich give teenage girls agony aunt advice

Confused? Miserable? Alone? Thom’n’Nige have the answers. 

Online teen girl mag Rookie run the rather excellent Ask A Grown Man feature, which sees gentlemen of note giving personal advice to troubled readers. Previous agony aunts include Jimmy Fallon (“Don’t be climbing in his window at night like Dawson’s Creek.”), Judd Apatow (“The most important person in the world is you!”) and Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm (“Everybody farts”)

The latest agony aunts for hire are Atoms For Peace’s Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich. Their responses run the gamut of “shyness, being bored by a relationship, physical imperfections, and avoiding regret” – essentially the four key themes of the first couple of Radiohead albums. Maybe this isn’t such an odd idea after all. Click below to watch the (highly entertaining) results.

Yorke was recently interviewed to similarly comic effect on Alec Baldwin’s podcast. The pair recently stopped by at Le Poisson Rouge; head here to watch. [via Pitchfork]
