WATCH: Busker singing 'Falling Slowly' by Glen Hansard in Dublin city gets tipped by Glen Hansard

This is surely every the dream of every busker.

Buskers always sound better around this time of year.

Maybe it's the cold weather, maybe it's the Christmas spirit (yeah, it's not too early), or maybe it's just all in our head, but there's something about the entire phenomenon that seems a little more special throughout the Winter months.

And as brilliant as some of the buskers in Ireland are, we don't think you'll find a better busking video than this one anytime soon.

A young man named Paddy Finnegan was singing a lovely rendition of Glen Hansard's Oscar-winning song 'Falling Slowly', from the movie Once.

He was belting the song out on King Street South in Dublin, when he was thrown a couple of quid by none other than Glen Hansard himself.

Hansard approaches Finnegan's guitar case during the chorus, which is when Finnegan briefly stops singing to say: "I don't believe it!", before carrying on with the song.

Seriously, this is absolutely brilliant.

This comes only a few days after Hansard appeared on The Late Late Show, where he gave a scathing criticism of the Irish government's handling of homelessness in this country.

What a man.
