In this video Beckers can be seen together with a pregnant friend. In the video he tries to congratulate her. He goes about doing that according to three outlines of them that are drawn on the wall. He does so after explaining that affection, unlike sadness, is not something spontanoues or urgent. Instead affection is sometheing that has a certain time and a certain place.

The thing I’m usually bothered by is if people show affection for each other in public. Because with affection it’s a totally different story. Because affection isn’t something you can’t stop. It is not something you have to get out immediately. I think affection on the other hand is something that can wait until you’re home.
