The vehicles are spray-painted with penises and there is one student who is well-known for this type of activity, “burnout-loser” and “f*ck-up” Dylan Maxwell.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Eggsy Unwin (Taron Egerton) the novice spy of 2014’s KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE returns in its first sequel KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE. Another movie—­­­­­­­­­­­and now, we’re franchising, folks!

Eggsy is, somewhat unexpectedly, still with actual Swedish Princess Tilde (Hanna Alström)...
