KING CRIMSON's Robert Fripp & Toyah Willcox Cover BRITNEY SPEARS' "Toxic," Continue Being Relationship Goals

This might be the most endearing "Sunday Lunch" clip that King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and his wife, Toyah Willcox, have posted yet. This week's cover is Britney Sprears' earworm "Toxic," with a message to #FreeBritney.

The hash tag popped up in recent months due to Britney's ongoing legal battle over conservatorship over her person against her father. A documentary on FX last month shed new light on the trial, which you can watch here.

But the most endearing part happened at the end of the cover, when they posted a short blooper. You can really see how much fun the duo are having recording these.

Willcox told NME recently that she started the series to occupy Fripp, who was getting really bummed out about not being able to tour. “Here I am in this house with this 74-year-old husband who I really don’t want to live without,” she said.

“He was withdrawing, so I thought: ‘I’m going to teach him to dance.’ And it became a challenge. I do the lighting, the filming, the conceptual side and the persuading Robert to take part."

Here are some of the duo's other recent covers:
"Enter Sandman" by Metallica
"Rebel Yell" by Billy Idol
"I Love Rock and Roll" by Joan Jett
"Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns N' Roses
"Purple Haze" by Jimi Hendrix,
Tainted Love by Soft Cell,
"Poison" by Alice Cooper
"Everlong" by Foo Fighters

When all is said and done, the one thing you won't be able to say about Robert Fripp is that he's boring.
