The Importance of Being Earnest (trailer)

Jack's wild, partying alter-ego "Ernest" has allowed him to live two separate lives - lives which are now colliding.

A Preview of the Tweets

(with the whole story happening on Twitter and in the LongShorts app)

@alger_nope

@alwaysernest Where are you at the moment? Any plans for tomorrow? Can I tag along?

Ernest
@alwaysernest

@alger_nope I'm on the train on my way back in town, and no. You have responsibilities. (Since when do you have a twitter account?)

Algy
@alger_nope

@alwaysernest (Responsibilities? Me? How dare you suggest such a thing.) If you're only back now, where have you been since last Thursday?

Later that day
Ernest
@alwaysernest

@alger_nope so... can I go with you to Lady Bracknell's tonight?

Algy
@alger_nope

@alwaysernest I certainly couldn't stop you... But if you do turn up, Lady B will definitely find something urgent that Gwen needs to attend to.

Ernest
@alwaysernest

@alger_nope I'm sure I can still win Gwen over, even with Lady B playing shield.

The next day
Jack W
@jacksworth

@alger_nope, are you seriously going to make me do this online?

Algy
@alger_nope

@jacksworth If you're worrying about Gwen reading these, don't. You know she never reads your tweets unless you @her. She's very conscientious that way. Now tell me why you have a fake Jack account, Ernest.

Later that week
Ernest
@alwaysernest

She said yes. SHE SAID YES.

Gwen
@msGwenFair

Ernest asked! And I said yes!!!!! Photographs of the ring will be on my instagram page shortly.

Then
Gwen
@msGwenFair

So happy to finally be engaged to the inimitable @alwaysernest – a man I was in love with long before I ever met him.

Gwen
@msGwenFair

I think that modern dissatisfaction results from the abandoning of ideals. And one of my ideals has always been to love an Ernest.

Ernest
@alwaysernest

@msGwenFair But what if I had been called something else? Just hypothetically...
