GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN has been out here for a couple of weeks at this stage, but it’s only hitting the States this weekend.

So Domhnall Gleeson is doing the rounds to drum up a bit of promotion, and found himself on Seth Meyer’s show last night.

Early on in the interview, he explained to Seth that he had never read Winnie the Pooh growing up because he mostly spoke in Irish. His equivalent? Bran the dog

Bran the dog!

“I grew up, up until around four or five, I probably spoke as much Irish as English. So there was a lot of Bran the dog and things like that”

Meyers, clearly not knowing who/what Bran the dog is, seemed unimpressed:

“That’s your Winnie the Pooh? Bran the dog?”

How DARE you, Seth

They didn’t delve any more into the Irish classic series that is Bran (the Irish translation of the popular Spot the Dog books), but getting a shoutout on Seth Meyers is an unexpected delight

Domhnall then went on to tell a great story about accepting awards for his dad Brendan, mentioned his charity work with St Francis Hospice in Raheny and then wrapped up the interview by walking Seth through his most famous Irish telly moment:
