Lad who gained viral fame for looking like a 'Toad' won't change his haircut despite being rinsed for it
| Last updated
A lad who went viral with his friends while on holiday because of his hairstyle has no intention of changing just because of a bit of stick online.
It’s become much like a more recent version of the ‘Four Lads in Jeans’ photo, which was massive on the internet a few years ago.
You remember that one, right?
However, it’s the lad on the far right that has attracted the most attention, partially because of his unusual beard and barnet combination.
It’s definitely a unique look, that’s for sure.
Some have compared him to Friar Tuck, others to Toad from Super Mario.
“The little fella on the right, did his mum cut his hair with a knife and fork?” said one comment.
"Fella on right looks like he’s going to go to the bar and order a pint of mead,” another wrote.
Regardless, the lads seem to think the whole thing is pretty funny.
The boys are – looking at the photo left to right – Maison, Marco, Matty, and Kyal, a group of friends from Manchester.
Speaking to the Daily Star, 22-year-old Maison said: "I just uploaded the picture to my Twitter as normal. I never expected it to blow up.
"The reaction has definitely been negative but it hasn't bothered us.
“It's just words on a screen, the whole internet fame has been funny I suppose."
He continued: "Some of the comments are genuinely funny, some are just sad people trying to feel better about themselves by having a dig at other people.
"Personal opinion is: I'm so glad I didn't wear a bum bag."
As for his mate Kyal, who bore the brunt of the backlash because of his hair, he’s finding the whole thing pretty funny, too.
Maison said that his mate won’t be ditching the ‘do any time soon.
"Kyal isn't bothered about what's being said,” he explained.
“As I said its just random people online.
“I pre-warned him he should bring back his skin fade but he stuck to what he wanted!"
Fair play to him.
Now, the boys are hoping that they can become as famous as the Four Lads in Jeans, who were even immortalised in a statue after they shot to viral fame in 2019.
