Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher

The Caption Contest is mostly Videogum’s territory; it’s been over a year since we’ve run one. But then, it’s been over a year since we’ve seen a photo this monumental: Britpop-era archrivals Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher sharing a supremely awkward and drunk-looking hug on the red carpet of the Brit Awards. Back in the mid-’90s, Albarn’s Blur and Gallagher’s Oasis had lots of fun saying mean things about each other in the press, but now Gallagher says stuff like this: “It’s funny to think Blur were last here 17 years ago when we were big rivals. Isn’t it funny how we’ve both mellowed after all these years? We’ve buried the hatchet.”

So here’s where you come in! What’s Damon saying? What’s Noel saying? Let us know in the comments section below!
