Ed Sheeran’s Galway Girl video [featuring Saoirse Ronan] was released this morning. A few Galway scenes missing like a pair of language students getting tackled and their bikes stolen. But overall a nice video…

    Like when I first watched the coked-up Gerry Ryan, after the Eurovision Riverdance performance, deliver his “IS THAT NOT THE GREATEST DANCING YOU HAVE *EVER* SEEN!?” comment, the hairs are standing up on the back of my neck … in a hugely uncomfortable, embarrassed way.

    for some reason the first picture gave me a flash back to Jackson dangling his baby out the window

      So according to Ed if you come to Galway you’ll get yer bike robbed, you’ll get the head thumped off ya, and a young one drinking dodgy Guinness will try to kill ya with a dart.

      Sounds bout right.

      Still, at least there was no one shouting ‘Begorrah!’ in the background like some sort of demented loon.

        Darby O’Gill is the only honest depiction of Ireland i’ve seen.
        The implicit byproduct of all the ‘blarney and begorrah’ in that movie is that it tells the viewer from the off that ‘none of this is real, it’s just a bit of fun really.’
        Other representations of this country are not so honest. They say they’re real but often have rose tinted glasses.*

        *(The rose tintedness involves the representatiosn of the country and people and not so much the superficial colour scheme, so when I say romantic or ‘rose tinted’, grittier representations of Ireland are definitely included, e.g. The Commitments.
        Darker representations present themselves as the truth. The real ireland. But notions of Irish identity/personhood usually get mixed in, and that can often have a chilling effect when it comes to showing the truth.)

        On a slightly related note, ‘The Quiet Man’ is one of the most psychedelic films i’ve seen.** It’d make a great double bill with ‘Come and See.’***

        **(It is a tad drawn out though.)
        ***(if the process of watching both films back to back didn’t feel so long.)

      Surely the question should be; why has Lucifer assumed the form of a ginger pied piper and what kind of messed up deal has Saoirse Ronan gotten herself into?

    It’s always the fuppers with Irish blood in them perpetuating this poo.

    I really liked this song till I found out he sung it, cant stand him. Also that video is pants.

    The Guinness folk will be happy with it… as will the Galway tourism board no doubt.

    Always disappointing when artists try to squeeze in some rap/hiphop in a pop song for no reason, especially when they can in fact sing well and have good control over pitch.

    This song doesn’t know where it’s from.

    Yis were bangin’ on yesterday about expensive watches….

    Well young Ed’s – as worn in this vid – is a Richard Mille RM 030 Americas Limited Edition and cost a cool $135,000….
