As we all know by now, Scotland goes to the polls this week for a once in a lifetime vote on their independence.

He explained all the details of the referendum (well, as much as he could in about a minute) before he decided that he was with the independence movement, and to show his support he was wearing a kilt and was going to play the bagpipes. The use of 'play' turned out to be very generous in our opinion, but you can check out the video below and make up your own mind.
