Irish dad flips out that son failed his driving test (in best accent ever)

An Irish dad flips out when he finds out his son has failed his driving test.

The son is pulling a fast one on his dad, he actually passed, but wanted to see how his dad would react to the “bad news.”  So he turned on his video, got into the car, and let the sparks fly.


We learn a few things right away with this video.

First, that Irishmen are awfully hot.

Second, that the Irish accent is awfully hot.

And third, that they use the f-bomb in Ireland a wee bit more often than we might use it here in America (you’ve been forwarned, perhaps watch this somewhere private).

The accent just blows me away.

    Eleven plus years with an Irish husband. Hot? Yes. Accent? Absent until he was trying to work it. Temper? Yes, and often. I am now single and loving it.

    cool, it also sounds better with an irish brogue.

    The use of “Fuck” in Ireland is quite common and is not taken as offensive as it is over here.

  • Butch1

    That is so funny. Like sweet talking the tester is going to make a difference. ;-) I got a kick out of his father calling the person a “cock” assuming it was a male who gave him the test first. The son really knew how to press his buttons.

    U2 playing in the background? I call stereotype! :)

  • I love that he asked why he didn’t sweeten her up? He could sweeten me up!

  • brownsquirrel

    Love it that U2 is playing in dad’s car.

  • Fourth, hold the frickin’ camera-phone horizontal. (Yes, that is a lovely Irish accent.)

  • The accent is hot. But even hotter is when they talk dirty in Gaelic to you :)

  • John Selig

    This is great John. Thanks for putting a smile on my face at the end of the day.

  • Perhaps after they exit the car :)
