But it's not what you think!

Another day, another TV show performance to help spread the gospel of TØP around the world. 

The guys turned up on a French TV show to perform "Stressed Out". But, wait, Tyler is wearing a dress! We are L.O.V.I.N.G the long grey dress and red hat combo. So fetch! Skip to the 17min mark for the performance.

There's a confusing ending to the video. Once they've finished performing, another guest appears to chastise Tyler for wearing a dress. Turns out, that guest was actually Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat, Brüno, Ali G) who was in character as Norman "Nobby" Grimsby, the lead from his new film Grimsby

The character is based on a English football hooligan, a stereotype not exactly known for their support of crossdressing, hence the jibes at the end. Tyler appears to be in on the joke though, and posted the video on his YouTube to clarify the situation. 

"Sacha Baron Cohen is a comedian actor, he was in character for his new film. please do not jump to conclusions and please do not harass him".

Apparently he shouted back at Cohen, "Don't talk to me with that beard, man." LOL!

Glad that's all cleared up. We hope to see Tyler in a dress on many more occasions. And Josh, too.
