People cannot get over this 1994 footage of Boyzone rehearsing beneath some goalposts

Why so much crotch-thrusting?

NO MATTER HOW hard we might try, we’ll never be able to erase the memory of Boyzone’s first appearance on The Late Late Show.

It was 1993. It was dungarees, waistcoats and crotch-grabbing. And it was utterly surreal.

Unsurprisingly, the lads have long since gotten used to this particular footage being wheeled out time and again, and with just one scaldy throwback to contend with, things could be worse.


And now they are.

In footage from 1994 which only surfaced this week, the band can be seen rehearsing their debut single, Working My Way Back, looking like a five-a-side who didn’t get a game.

We’re talking goalposts. We’re talking silky shorts. And, in Mikey’s case, we’re talking football socks.

Watch out for some serious synchronised crotch-thrusting – one version of which was freakishly reminiscent of the job centre scene in The Full Monty.
