Man's Incredible St Patrick's Day Guinness Trick Stuns The Internet
| Last updated
One man has well and truly captured the attention of the nation with his fascinating Guinness trick in celebration of St Patrick’s Day. Watch the clip below:
St Paddy’s celebrations were in full force yesterday (17 March), with family and friends banding together to honour their Irish roots.
And of course, Guinness was the star of the show, with sales inevitably sky-rocketing during the festivities.
However, if you thought Guinness was only for drinking, then think again, as one man has exhibited some immense skills using only a pint of Guinness and a spare glass.
He begins by holding the empty glass in his mouth, which is no small feat in itself.
Then, without spilling a drop, he manages to transfer the contents of his Guinness into the empty glass.
Following some sort of balancing act between the two glasses, the lad finally rewards himself by drinking the whole thing in one go.
Twitter users shared their amazement after watching the clip, as one wrote: “Behold your new king.”
Another joked: “Either he’s too drunk or not drunk enough.”
A third added: “That is a useful skill in so many ways.”
However, others disagreed, with one tweeting: “Great skills...but why???”
Another wrote: “When your skill is very impressive but actually very unimportant."
It seems one lad had the luck of the Irish with him yesterday after he won £1,900 ($2,500) at Cheltenham Races.
Aged just 11, Kian McNally asked his mum to put an accumulator on, which ended up bagging her a tasty return.
Kian has developed somewhat of a following in Ireland, where he is known for his savvy betting tips.
I guess everyone’s just forgotten that he’s not legally old enough to gamble himself!
Speaking on ITV Racing, the youngster said: "I asked mum to put a bet on for me and it had Sir Gerhard, Bravemansgame, Energumene and Facile Vega.
"Bravemansgame pulled out and the other three came up. My mum won £1,900."
His mum was then asked if she’d already splashed the cash, to which she replied ‘absolutely’. The host then joked: "She's looking very smart in her new coat!"
Kian was at the races alongside his mum and dad Ronan, who is the owner and trainer of The Jam Man.
In an interview with the Irish Independent, jockey Ronan said his son is already 'light years ahead' in the saddle.
