    We've all come to love Bastille thanks to their brilliant mega-hits like "Pompeii" and "Of The Night," but apart from being ridiculously talented musicians, they're also pretty hilarious dudes. Which is why when they stopped by BuzzFeed NY to chat all about their music, we had the English experts act out some of the most epic "British people problems." Which —*spoiler* — they all agreed were pretty truthful.
