Your reminder that Pat Kenny opened the 2002 Toy Show on an elephant

A massive circus elephant in the Late Late studio… what could possibly go wrong?

YESTERDAY WAS BOYZONE’S moment in the spotlight. Today, as part of RTÉ’s top ten past Toy Show moments leading up to this year’s, Pat Kenny’s ‘Grand Entrance’ in 2002 is given a nod.

He enters the studio on an elephant, to the Apprentice theme music. What’s not to like? For Pat– oh, just everything.


We can FEEL the awkward. It has taken an actual physical form.
