What happens in the video of Paul Mescal and his sister?

The hilarious clips shows Paul sitting next to Nell, who is a singer, ready to tickle the ivories for her.

But the pair find themselves suffering a severe case of the giggles – and laugh so much they can’t continue.

In the first, Paul insists, “We’ll edit it” after a few false starts, before realising the attempt is unsalvageable and admitting, “No, we’re cancelling it”.
