This is what the Irish are getting up to Down Under. The sense of pride is overwhelming.

This video doing the rounds of Facebook in Oz supposedly shows an inebriated Irish emigrant getting really into the spirit of Australia Day this weekend. We're sure his mother's delighted.

Obviously, NSFW or your life really as attaching explosives to your head is really only the life choice of someone with a death wish or a severely low IQ. Aussie authorities have since come out and derided the video saying people like this 'give fireworks a bad name' and that 'it's disappointing because it ends up another story that gets circulated.'

Bare-arsed cheek from this lad. Literally.
