Monday Funday: Cereal porn


Think you’re having a bad day? On Saturday night, at the G20 official dinner, Theresa May had to sit through the EU’s official anthem while surrounded by leaders from the other member nations.

So if your day at work is resembling our beleaguered PM’s weekend, or if you just fancy a laugh, read on for our latest batch chuckles.

From Archie Gemmill’s famous strike in the 1978 World Cup to Gazza’s wonder goal at Wembley, Scotland have had a turbulent relationship with sport. They’ve certainly enjoyed a lot of success in the last decade, however, with Andy Murray acing his way to world number one.

This has led to Scotland taking a significant interest in Tennis, which Lager brand and constant jokers Tennent’s have satirised in their latest piece of content. The 60 second clip shows the nation’s sports fans embracing Wimbledon, by eating strawberries in pubs and drinking lager styled cocktails. It also features a surprising guest at the end….
