The missus keeps telling me to ‘switch that shite off’, but I just told her to ‘get dafuq’, so I’m defs getting the hang of it”
Brosnan revealed he has been in touch with screen legends Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey and Tommy Lee Jones, to get some pointers on how to make a complete balls of it. “Aw the lads have been pure sound like” he went on. “They’ve sent me loads of DVDs like ‘The Quiet Man’, ‘Darby O’Gill and the Little People’ and ‘The Commitments’… so I can really hone my Belfast brogue and make it praper weeker, like.”
“By this time next week I’ll be able to properly say ‘Taps aff til the morning til ya'” he added before ripping off his t-shirt and necking a bottle of Buckie.
