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.
