Anyone spot the not-so-subtle Second Captains promo on Channel 4's new sitcom?

Chancers.

THE THIRD EPISODE of Channel 4′s new sitcom Catastrophe aired last night.

And oddly enough, it featured some product placement from Ireland’s beloved sports podcast Second Captains.

That’s a lovely-looking t-shirt in the opening scene, isn’t it?

Lovely.

HANG ON A MINUTE.

Channel 4′s Irish viewers were not slow to spot it.

Actress Sharon Horgan has made it clear that there is no connection between this prime-time product placement and the fact that her brother Mark Horgan is the producer of Second Captains.

Yiz chancers.
