Friends Sing Mr Brightside In Memory Of Top Bloke
It’s really only a couple of times a month and maybe a handful of times a year people upload personal vids to the web that are sincerely moving.
There’s a lot of folks out there looking for 15 minutes of fame or a quick cash grab via a viral video, but thank fuck this is not the case with this video.
I’d like to say cheers to the person (Timbo) who shot it and shared it.
It’s bloody amazing, mate.
As far as I know all of these top blokes and sheilas are singing in an Irish pub as a tribute to a late mate. The singer on the bar is Brian and the mate they’re remembering is Ger ‘Farmer’ Foley. Seems like a top bloke and died from cystic fibrosis at 45.
The sing-a-long tribute video is below:
That is a bloody beautiful send off. Complete with crowd surfing. Fuck yes.
You wanna know what else is awesome?
The Killers are aware of this heartfelt grassroots cover and sent out a supportive tweet yesterday:

Folks in Ireland sure know how to party during the good times and the melancholy times. Good onya!
