Before he was a handsome rich boy sleeping with the same woman as his father on "White Lotus," Adam DiMarco played an indelibly campy role as a gay man on molly in "Date and Switch."

A Twitter user posted a clip from the Chris Nelson-directed 2014 film in which DiMarco, clad in a pink shirt and jumping around excitedly, introduces himself to Michael (Nicholas Braun) and Matty (Hunter Cope) at a gay bar with the words, "I'm Jarod, and I'm very gay."

"Yeah, we noticed," Matty — who is also gay — replies.

Jarod's verbal torrent continues, ending with, "So, do you want to fuck later?" and a giggle.

After the two protagonists turn him down, Jarod tries a different approach: "Let's get you some E," he says, referring to ecstasy, "and then we'll talk."

Twitter was willing to talk all about it.
