Except of course it wasn't the actual McGregor (not that we think he wouldn't have been up for it) but SNL player Alex Moffat, who pulled out the full fur for his shoulders, polo necked up his knitwear and begorrahed and diddly-eyed for all he was worth while talking about those two Irish staples, drinking and fighting.

There are a few too any stereotypes thrown in here to really get behind it but there's at least one good joke that will genuinely make you laugh out loud.
