This is one of the best viral Irish videos we've seen in a long time!
"Red Van Man" has become an anonymous, legendary figure in Ireland after a now-viral video showed a local man driving a red van, giving out to another man attempting to dump an old mattress by the side of the road in the Irish countryside.
Now just simply trending as #RedVanMan, he has unknowingly become responsible for one of the best Twitter trends, #SorryMeHole, after he berated the other man's poor attempt at an apology for being caught red-handed dumping illegally (known as fly-tipping) in the rural Irish area.
The video was first shared by Twitter account ReportAll, an account dedicated to reporting issues to your local Irish Council:
The video quickly took off as a result of Red Van Man's fantastic Irish take on the English language in retorting "Sorry Me Hole."
His willingness to put a stop to the dumping has also been commended by many:
The fact that #SorryMeHole was trending was in itself a joy to behold. Then I saw why. Go Red Van Man & thank you Irish Twitter.— Paul O'Kane (@pmokane) August 30, 2019
I just wanted to say it. So I am saying it #SorryMeHole— Roisin Ingle (@roisiningle) August 30, 2019
This is just brilliant! No amount of creative brainstorming could come up with a better slogan to sum up the annoyance and disgust when you discover flytipping in the countryside. #SorryMeHole https://t.co/K2ljTxk0bC— Irish Farmers' Assoc (@IFAmedia) August 30, 2019
Three cheers for Red Van Man!
