It's been decreed that the Christmas season officially begins with the Late Late Toy Show and, sure enough, last night's episode was a barnstormer.
We had rapping farmers, Evelyn Cusack (yes, the weatherwoman), Tubridy trying to induce a woman into labour, David Walliams almost shifting someone and a young Bono, complete with a leather jacket and everything.
Of course, Twitter was having a field day as the show's hashtag soared to the No. 2 Trending Topic WORLDWIDE.
Here's our ten best tweets during the broadcast.

In fairness to Evelyn Cusack, she was a grand 'oul sort.

The Ex-Pat Community was up in arms over the frequent outages of RTE Player.
Wait until this girl's 18th birthday and her mother pulls out this video to embarrass her. She too will 'die on a table'... #LateLateToyShow

Was anyone else slightly terrified of the girl talking about the dead horse?

Who knew Ireland had an Amish community that loved weather forecasters?
I see the faux U2 have the same height difference between the singer & the rest of the band as the real thing. Impressive. #LateLateToyShow

He's right, in fairness.
I'd say Tubridy is on some comedown this morning #LateLateToyShow

We all are, in fairness.
