Rugby star Max Lahiff has given one of the most hilariously bizarre interviews in recent memory in an “utterly mad” moment that has gone viral.
The Bristol Bears star was speaking to his club’s media team for a pre-match interview ahead of his side’s 37-20 win over the Wasps on Saturday.
But what quickly followed was one of the most peculiar and engaging interviews seen, as Lahiff strung together some truly hilarious takes on his thoughts on the match ahead.
The clip even begins in the oddest of fashion, with Lahiff propping himself up with his neck against the posts, and it only gets weirder from there.
“Friday night’s always been a personal favourite of mine. You’ve got the long weekend,” Lahiff started.
“Usually, when the fans are here, everyone’s just wanting that release, that stimulation just to watch a macabre sport of gladiatorial confrontation and you feed off that as athletes.
“You love it, love it. But unfortunately, that’s not today but I’m looking forward to getting right in amongst it and intimate in the best kind of way with the men from Wasps, canny foxes.
“One to 15, they’re all quite unpredictable, much like their play. It should be good fun. A real battle, so to speak.”
Lahiff also added a hilarious reflection of his first game back with the Bears earlier this month.

“I was missing lungs. Oh man I was battling.com. You know, one of those real personal grind-outs,” he said.
“You’re just like, ‘Oh God, next phase, make it, you can do it.’ Just all that in a monologue.
“But it was really fun. I was so glad to get it done. Some relief there that I’ve still semi-got it.”
The Bears media man conducting the interview could barely contain his laughter at the end as Lahiff seamlessly switched from his natural voice to his eccentric alter ego.
He said: “That was a really enjoyable and albeit utterly mad couple of minutes. Thank you.”
