Blake Harrison From 'The Inbetweeners' Was A Comedy Legend At Soccer Aid

It's usually quite a serious affair, the national anthem. Everyone stand up, all together now, "God save our graaaaacious queen."

When it happens at football matches, the camera slowly pans along the teams, who are all serious and sometimes have a hand on their heart.

The same system took place last night at Soccer Aid, except this time they had Blake Harrison in the line-up, and Blake Harrison is not a serious person.

As the camera was scanning along, past Joe Wicks, Darius Vassell, Freddie Flintoff, Mark Wright, it's a sea of serious faces. There's a bit of a weird tooth-cleaning thing going on with Wright, but what happens next is way weirder.

There he is, good old Harrison, grinning big time, face frozen in one of the best expressions we've seen on screen since Kim Kardashian's crying face.

People on Twitter were straight on it, sharing photos and videos (where you can hear people pissing themselves laughing in the background) of the glorious moment.

One user tweeted: "Thank you for being you Blake Harrison." Another said: "Blake Harrison is me when I see a Chinese."

Harrison himself shared a clip, with the caption "I don't know if im more proud of this or the penalty!"

That penalty won England the match over the Rest of the World team, and secured Harrison's position as an absolute legend.

We're just a bit disappointed he didn't whip out the dance routine that his character in The Inbetweeners was famous for, instead standing with his arms straight in the air while the rest of the England team swarmed him.

The 'legends' portion included Phil Neville and Jamie Redknapp for England, and Eric Cantona and Yaya Touré for The Rest Of The World.

Celebrity guests included Olympic legends Sir Mo Farah and Usain Bolt, as well as Olly Murs, Paddy McGuinness, Gordon Ramsay, and Dan Carter.

Robbie Williams, Mr Soccer Aid himself, was also there. Robbie's the Unicef UK ambassador and came up with the idea of Soccer Aid back in 2006, along with presenter Jonathan Wilkes. We also reckon he's stopped ageing and started going backwards.

After the game, Olly Murs posed naked with the winning trophy covering his privates. That clip of Blake, though. Watch it again. And again. One more time. IT DOESN'T GET OLD.
