Is there anything more quintessentially Australian than day-drinking with a good mate and then doing the 'robot dance' to entertain onlooking paparazzi?

People on social media are truly vibing the mood given off by actor Emma Thompson and her rudely unnamed "friend", otherwise known as Tasmania's very own Hannah Gadsby - taking a break from touring her new comedy special, Douglas.

Published by UK's The Mail on Sunday, the photographs show the pair having a great time, with Thompson performing some truly wonderful dance moves as the pair walk down the street laughing.

Thompson is busy promoting her new movie Late Night, which co-stars Mindy Kaling and parodies the cut-throat world of late night talk shows.

I don't know about you, but this is one friendship group we'd love to be part of.
