There’s really no way to adequately do the intro to this story justice, so let’s get into it shall we: Harry Styles at some cod sperm in order to avoid telling Kendall Jenner, who is his ex, which of his songs were about her. That’s it. That’s the story.
On a recent episode of The Late Late Show, Styles filled in for James Corden, the show’s actual host who was out filming a movie. Among the segments, the singer played the game Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts, wherein the host and the guest both pose questions to one another. The person on the receiving end of the question can either answer the question or eat a “delicacy” from the spread before them. On this table: bug trifle, jellyfish, giant water scorpion, a salmon smoothie, and a bull penis. Oh! And cod sperm.
“Cod sperm,” Styles said in a high register once he gets to it. “Seems rather tame in comparison … How do they uh, get the sperm out of the cod?” Don’t ask for things you don’t want to know sir!
The game started off with Styles, who had never played the game before, posing the first question to Jenner, who had played before. The question he pulled was pretty simple: Jenner must rank her Kendall-Jenner siblings from best to worse parents. She took a sniff of the 100 year old eggnog and takes the query in stride. The siblings in order: Rob, Khloe, Kim, Kylie, Kourtney.
So the game swapped to the singer. Before posing the question, Jenner picked the sperm as the delicacy of choice.
“All in a day’s work,” Styles said, seemingly undaunted.
“Which songs on your last album were about me,” Jenner asked. Styles facepalmed, and pulled out a napkin to tuck into his shirt. He hesitated, seemingly undecided about whether to eat the sperm or not.
“Just don’t look at it,” Jenner said, in what she hoped was helpful advice.
“Oh yeah, that fixes everything,” Styles replied. “What are we doing?!” After a few more breaths, he takes a quick bite and begins a long process of chewing.
“What are you doing? Just swallow it,” Jenner pleaded.
“To spit or to swallow, that is the question,” Styles teased. Well … he’s a spitter. And for the record, Jenner eats a tad bit of bull penis later.
