‘Ted Lasso’ Stars Brett Goldstein and Phil Dunster

In Season 2 of “Ted Lasso,” soccer’s bad boy Jamie Tartt (Phil Dunster) is back with AFC Richmond, and so is his chant. Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do.

But is the Greyhound faithful’s chorus to the “Baby Shark” tune even the best? “He’s here, he’s there, he’s every f—ing where!” chants the newly retired Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein).

Dunster and Goldstein were asked separately which character received the better terrace chant from the writers’ room.

“Both have value, but Roy’s has a lot more profanity,” Dunster, who portrays superstar/super-egotistical Tartt, told TheWrap.

“Brett Goldstein likes Roy Kent’s version. Dunster said, “He enjoys a good curse.” “But listen, there’s a reason ‘Baby Shark’ is the most-watched or second-most-watched YouTube video of all time. It’s a good one. It simply takes you down to your core.”

Goldstein, who is also a show writer, didn’t claim Roy’s was better than Jamie’s, but he did give us a ranking — and a nugget from the edit room floor.

“I believe we had many variations of the chant, one of which included the words, ‘He’ll murder your f—ing Gran,'” Goldstein recounted. “To be perfectly honest, I chose that.”

Kent, weathered and cranky, would absolutely go with that one. The “Lasso” team had the audience record all of the numerous variations so that one could be found. Ultimately, actor and co-creator Brendan Hunt, as Coach Beard, was the one who made the cut.

We also inquired if the players had heard the chants from the crowd. The short answer is no, but for a few strong reasons — only one of which is related to the coronavirus epidemic in Goldstein’s case.

“I’ve only been outside for about a month, and I assumed I’d be wearing a mask.” But it turns out that these f—ing brows are instantly recognized,” Goldstein explained. “However, I believe the positive is that people will be a little afraid of Roy Kent.” People have walked past me and said things like, “I really appreciate the performance.” And I say, ‘Good,’ in a Roy Kent voice, and continue going. People haven’t chanted at me in the street.”

That’s one way of being abandoned. It certainly works for Roy.

Dunster, who portrays the more obnoxious of the two soccer players, isn’t getting booed on set, but “a lot” of parents have informed him the repetitive “Baby Shark” jingle has caused them “a lot of problems,” he told TheWrap. And he understands their anguish, singing the Jamie Tartt version all the time: Dunster stated, “I can’t get that out of my thoughts.”
