The Rubberbandits' Blindboy Appeared On Last Night's Late Late Show And Here's How Twitter Reacted
"My generation are jumping on planes or jumping in rivers"
Blindboy Boatclub (or Blindboy Boathouse as Ryan Tubridy referred to him) from The Rubberbandits appeared on last night's The Late Late Show.
The Limerick 'gas cuntist' appeared alongside broadcaster Ivan Yates, artist Robert Ballagh, and writer Martina Devlin, who didn't seem too impressed to be sitting beside this chap with a plastic bag on his face.
The four were assembled to discuss the 1916 commemorations, which the Limerick comedy duo weighed in on with their recent RTÉ show The Rubberbandits' Guide To 1916.
Here's a short clip from last night's show.
Given The Rubberbandits' penchant for absurd comedy (just check out their video 'Liar Liar Danny Dyer'), you might have thought Blindboy would have turned the whole segment into a piss take.
But from the reaction on Twitter, it seemed most people thought he was the voice of reason on the panel.
Here are a few of the tweets.

Oh well this should be good!
Could the woman next to Blindboy on the Late Late Show look any less enthusiastic about where she and what she's about to discuss 😂— Row-Sheen (@RoisinRedmond) January 8, 2016

People saying it's disrespectful of Blindboy to wear a bag talking about 1916. But He talks more sense than the suit wearers. #LateLateShow— Róisín Elaine (@elaineroisin) January 8, 2016
