Some bright spark on Ireland's Reddit page has decided to upload the pre-fame Michael Fassbender ad to the site and it's proving very popular, reminding us all of a simpler time when the Oscar nominated actor was just some bloke swimming across the Atlantic to try see his bro.

It's eleven years since the ad first came onto our screens but it's still as spine-tingling as it was first time round, with the late Mic Christopher's Heyday providing the soundtrack.

Fun fact we learned from one Reddit user? The pub at the end is actually Dice Bar in Smithfield.

Fun fact you can learn from us? Michael Fassbender used to frequent Mulligans in Stoneybatter for his pints not all that long ago.
