Why pose for a photo when you can Irish dance instead?
Three 26-year-old guys from Ireland made it their mission to spread the love of Ireland around the world, doing a little Irish dancing in front of famous monuments and vistas in 23 countries.
Starting at home in Dublin, Iain McNamara, Chris McGrath and Kevin Cobbe stepped and kicked their way across 23 countries in South America, Australia, Asia and the UK.
In each location, the lads filmed a clip of themselves dancing before a well-known attraction, including the Guinness Storehouse at St. James’ Gate, the equatorial line in Quito, Ecuador, the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu in Peru, the Sydney Opera House, the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia and London’s Big Ben. At one point, in Buenos Aires, a young man holding a squeegee joins in on the action.
The clips are accompanied by the iconic music and footfalls of "Riverdance," and McNamara, McGrath and Cobbe get increasingly tan (and increasingly nimble) as the video goes on.
McNamara told IrishCentral that their Irish dance moves were entirely self-taught.
