It's official: RTÉ News is now a comedy.
With the amount of live news reports being interrupted and the inclusion of bizarrely hilarious moments during what's supposedly a serious round-up of the day's events, we can't help but think that someone in our national broadcaster is straight up messing with us.
What has finally convinced us is this clip taken during the Six One News this evening that included, in the background, a guy selling newspapers who was also really enjoying a 99.
Check it out below.

I think we can all agree the cameraman who included this guy in the shot deserves a round of applause.
