The Gardiner Brothers, Irish American Irish dancing phenoms, have teamed up with McDonald’s ahead of St. Patrick's Day.
Matt and Mike Gardiner unveiled their newest Irish dance video on their massively popular Instagram page on February 23 in honor of Shamrock Shakes returning to Ireland this St. Patrick's Day season.
Shamrock Shakes, as you likely already know, are the minty green milkshakes that McDonald's releases for a short time each year in honor of St. Patrick's Day. They were invented in Connecticut in the late 1960s and have been a hit every March since the 1970s.
The new Irish dance video from the Gardiner brothers is backed by “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” by Irish American rock group Dropkick Murphys and opens with a shot of the lads' hard shoes landing beside two Shamrock Shakes.
With scenic Co Galway in the background, Matt and Mike begin to Irish dance - as always, in simply amazing form - before almost magically switching into dashing green matching suits.
In their Instagram post, which has since amassed more than 18k likes in less than a day, the brothers wrote: "The Shamrock Shake is back at McDonald's Ireland! We know it'll keep our feet moving as fast as possible in the lead up to St. Patrick's Day ☘️ Get yours now at your local McDonald's and show us your fastest, tastiest moves 🔥"
