A sheep was sheared live on the Late Late last night and nobody is quite sure why

We’ve reached peak Irish TV.

THE LATE LATE show never fails to amuse, and confuse.


The show continued with the theme of having farm animals in the studio by filming a man shear a sheep for no particular reason.

World record holder in sheep shearing, Ivan Scotts, sheared 867 wool lambs in nine hours. In studio, he sheared one in 41 seconds and everyone was like, wtf.


Even Ryan was a bit… confused.

1. Most people agreed it was possibly the most Irish piece of Friday night television, EVER
