Pat Kenny's bust up on the The Late Late Show

It seems that Pat Kenny was confronted on the Late Late Show last night and the video has already made it onto YouTube! I heard on the radio this morning that the man is in custody. Well done to Pat for coming back from the ad break composed and ready to carry on the show. I didn’t see the show myself, I was channel surfing elsewhere (Escape From Alcatraz was on which was interesting since I’d been there!)

For those not familiar with The Late Late Show, think of the host of the most popular chat show in your country being confronted by a drunken man shouting obscenities!

Thanks Donal for posting the video, that _was_ quick!

Update – The man who caused the controversy is Paul Stokes who has patented a system that uses GPS as a road safety aid. It helps stop cars crashing by tracking every vehicle on the roads and Mr. Stokes asserts the RTE and the Irish media are censoring him.

Cheers, was just heading to bed after watching the highly entertaining (for once) Late Late and I got this link on email from a buddy. It was crying out to be posted! There has to be more background behind why this guy did it though.

To be fair, I would recommend attending The Late Late Show before siding with our esteemed national news agency. I found it to be quite a different experience in person. The impact of Hunter S. Thompson’s ideas on journalism have certainly been underestimated.

[…] Paul Stokes is at it again! Not content with barging in on a chat show last week he drove a car through a security barrier at RTE in Dublin, headed for the main doors, crashed into those before finally coming to rest a few feet away when his car bounced off the doors with the impact! He was detained by security and is to appear at Dublin District Court this morning. […]

Yer man is right Pat Kenny is a piece of shit, he was well wasted and sounds like a complete asshole but still I hate Pat Kenny.
