In Honor of St. Patricks Day – Revisiting the Leprechaun
Happy St. Patricks day to all my Irish Peeps! Especially those of you over in the land of Eire getting low…(see my last
In honor of the holiday I thought I’d pay tribute to some magically delicious shenanigans that took place in my home town a few years ago. I’ve probably watched this video a hundred times and it still cracks me up. Enjoy the YouTube post below.
Anybody seen a Leprechaun say yeah!!!!!!!!
For those unfamiliar with this story** this was a real news story that aired on WPMI in Mobile a few years ago about the commotion that was caused in the Crighton community over some alleged sightings of a creature that was described as a leprechaun in a tree. The brilliance of this piece is the fact that it’s unclear whether this is a well orchestrated joke or whether the people actually believe there is a leprechaun living in a tree. The video went viral and resulted in songs, T-Shirts, and webpages in it’s honor. To date this is my all time favorite viral video.
** What kind of rock were you living under back in 2006 when this came out????
