The scene sees Jay and Neil visit a Malia tattoo studio after agreeing to get each other’s names tattooed on them. Neil goes first, getting ‘Jay, Neil, Malia’ inked onto his back, but both teens are left dismayed when they realise the ‘J’ looks more like a ‘G’, prompting Jay to back out of the deal.
But in classic Neil fashion, he soon gets over his dismay when Jay promises to 'chip in' and get it changed into a tiger back home in the UK.
The clip has been shared avidly online and fans were quick to point out how funny the scene was.
"They should have kept this scene!", one user said, as another pointed out: “That would have been the best scene."
Why didn’t this scene make it into the movie? This is brilliant.”
However, one wise social media user pointed out that the scene is the definition of continuity hell, penning: “Wouldn't be worth keeping in, 5/10 scene which would cause serious continuity issues that just aren't worth the scene.”
Just last month, another deleted The Inbetweeners Movie scene did the rounds on TikTok, and once again fans were left wondering why it was scrapped from the final cut.
The scene features fan favourite Mr. Gilbert and sees the boys sauntering through Malia at night when they notice a rowdy crowd of people cheering on a sesh.
They go to check out the source of all the madness and are met with a shirtless Mr. Gilbert, who is standing on a table chugging litres of beer.
Gilbert mimes for the lads to stay quiet and gestures that he’ll slit their throats if they say anything, prompting Will to remark: “Well, at least somebody is enjoying themselves."
Naturally, the clip whipped up a frenzy among fans, with one person quipping: "So they took out the funny bits of the film lol."
The Inbetweeners Movie famously followed Will (Simon Bird), Simon (Joe Thomas), Jay (James Buckley), and Neil (Blake Harrison) on a lads’ holiday in Malia.
The four pals end up in some pretty dire situations, starting with their hotel, which comes complete with a dead dog and a warning that they’ll be issued a €50 fine if they 'sh*t on [the] floor'.
The Inbetweeners fans will be devastated to hear that resurfaced deleted scenes are probably as good as it’s going to get as far as new material goes, seeing as Simon Bird seemingly confirmed in April that a reunion was off the cards.
He told The Guardian: “It’s a hard no, I’m afraid. It just wouldn’t be the show people want or remember. Much better to leave it as a happy memory."Featured Image Credit: Film4 Productions
