WATCH: Alan Partridge's Irish farmer singing rebel songs on Paddy's Day is fantastic
“Oh my God, that was like an advert for the IRA.”
It's Tuesday, which means we're still thinking about Monday night's episode of This Time with Alan Partridge.
So what is the thing you'd least expect to see on the BBC? Well a lot of things spring to mind, but one of them is surely a stirring rendition of 'Come Out, Ye Black and Tans' in celebration of St Patrick's Day.
It's safe to say the whole episode took an unexpected turn at the end of the show.
One Alan Partridge usually provides enough cringe to be getting along with with but all of a sudden there were two of them on the This Time couch.
The doppelgänger, also played by Steve Coogan, was a Sligo farmer called Martin who relentlessly mocked Partridge and listed the strange farming tactics he's employ.

The show ended with Sligo farmer/Partridge look-alike singing a host of Irish rebel songs like 'Come Out, Ye Black and Tans' and 'The Men Behind the Wire.'
In classic Partridge style, he muttered to Jennie,“Oh my God, that was like an advert for the IRA.”
Watch this until the end...
