People Can’t Wait To Return To The Pub After Most British Pub Scene Ever Goes Viral
| Last updated
One of the most quintessentially British pub scene videos ever has gone viral again, as people look forward to the relaxing of lockdown and the much-awaited return to the boozer.
The video was shared again on Twitter by Liam McCall, with the caption: "It's Friday the boozers are nearly ready to open, so it's only right I treat you all to this again. The Fox and Lion, Leyland."
The footage shows the residents of Leyland enjoying a night in your typical local, all to the sound of MC Hammer's 'Can't Touch This' - a classic.
Originally filmed in 2016, the video has been doing the rounds for years, resurfacing every so often to celebrate the start of the weekend.
But since lockdown restrictions meant that hospitality closed, it's become more than just a funny video - it's a symbol of our national identity, and we absolutely cannot wait to get back in to the pubs.
Ste Fiszer, 33, is one of the stars of the show. More commonly known as 'the legend in the red t-shirt', Ste gave us a bit of an insight into the legendary piece of footage.
Speaking to LADbible, Ste said of the pub: "It's like that 75 percent of the time - or should I say it was before lockdown. It's a very friendly place and the people are easy-going and welcoming.
"I used to drink in there daily, as I did in most pubs in Leyland. They are a good place to socialise and uplifting from the moment you walk in."
The video has definitely had that effect on Twitter users.
One person replied to the video saying: "The bloke dancing with his hands in his pockets is what makes Britain great."
Another wrote: "Pay good money to have a Friday night there, looks like a proper boozer."
A third commented: "Look at them all not giving a f*** and having a lovely old time."
And there was plenty of love for Ste in the comments.
Ste hasn't got a clue how many pints deep he was at this stage, saying it was probably 'quite a few'.
Like the rest of us, he's looking forward to pubs re-opening, saying: "Of course I am excited, who isn't! I'll be ordering a large JD and lemonade, followed by as many more as I can handle!"
Under the government roadmap to leaving lockdown, outdoor hospitality will hopefully reopen on 12 April - provided all goes to plan, of course - meaning we're within touching distance of our first pub-bought drink of the year, which is less than a month away.
