Two Irish Rowers Give The Funniest Interview Of 2016 Rio Olympics

Meet Paul O’Donovan and his brother Gary. They’re two Bros from Ireland. At the Rio Olympics, the two won the silver medal for Ireland. They’re now larger-than-life back on The Emerald Isle, where the whole country went “mad” for rowing during the Rio Olympics.

Afterwards, they gave this interview for Ireland’s official Olympic media partner, RTE Sports. It’s the best interview of the 2016 Olympics, even though I have no idea what they’re saying. something about “Podium pants and pizzas” I wish I knew. All I know is that I want to drink a million beers with these two wonderful Irish Bros and sing old pub songs until the wee hours of the morning. I feel like I’m watching a Guy Richie movie a la Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels or Snatch, but I love these guys.

Congrats, O’Donovan. Pints on the whole damn country when you get back.
