11 reasons Michael Flatley is just a boring Irish lad at heart

He may own rhinoceros horns, but he’s really just one of the lads. Here’s the evidence.

MICHAEL FLATLEY MAY have a giant mansion stuffed with precious rhino horns, but it’s not all glam.

At heart he’s just a regular, standard-issue Irish lad.

Here’s the proof:

1. He only owns one pair of Good Jeans

3. He doesn’t know what to do with his face in photos

4. So he overcompensates by being ‘gas’

5. He appreciates literature, but in all honesty he’s a bit puzzled by it at times

Sure didn’t we all?

7. He’s very proud of his road frontage

Why else would he casually drop a mention of “my mile-long driveway” into this interview?

8. And when he got married, he had a giant country wedding and invited everyone

10. He has two pairs of shoes: his regular shoes and his Work Shoes.

11. And finally: he cares about Irish history, but has a slightly shaky idea of what actually happened

As evidenced by this recreation of the 1916 Rising through the medium of Irish dance.
