WATCH: Man on rollerblades hitches a ride down O'Connell Street on back of a Dublin Bus

"It reminded me of hitching a ride in Tony Hawks underground game."

JOE reader Ciaran Farrelly was making his usual bus journey home when he came across something that he had never seen before.

He was stunned at first but somehow managed to get out his phone in time to record the bizarre act.

The 38A runs from Burlington Road to Damastown and 12 minutes after it takes off, it arrives in O'Connell Street and it was here today that this man on rollerblades decided it was time to hitch a ride...

Farrelly got in touch to tell us about what he recorded...
"I was just on the bus home from work and two lads were hovering around the back of the bus as it pulled off O'Connell bridge.

"One of them grabbed the back of the bus just as it pulled off, I barely got my phone out in time but I got my priorities right! It reminded me of hitching a ride in Tony Hawks underground game.
"Our bus driver wasn't too pleased, as you can guess from the horn at the end. A mental thing to try but he's probably the one in the most danger. Wiping out in real life must hurt more than in video games."
