LAST NIGHT, THE Late Late Show featured several celebrities dancing for charity.

Dermot Bannon, Majella O’Donnell, Maria Walsh and George Hook were among those to take part in the dance-off, which saw money raised for several Irish charities.

There were jives, salsas and Charlestons, but there was one moment that really made an impression on viewers.

Yes, reader, we are talking about the moment George Hook grabbed his crotch during a hip-hop routine.

All the celebrities were dancing to a hip-hop megamix that included MC Hammer’s U Can’t Touch This and Five’s Everybody Get Up when George Hook grabbed his crotch.

Not once, but twice.

Here’s the first time…


Then, in case we missed it the first time or were somehow unclear that this was supposed to be hip-hop, Hook reached for it again and…



As you can imagine, it was a lot to take in

In fact, there were reports of televisions spontaneously combusting

Some found the whole thing strangely hypnotising

One thing was certain, however — that image will stay with all of us until the end of days

Here is the routine in full.
