When Tommy Bolger decided to run for President of the Students' Union in the University of Limerick, he knew he needed a good campaign video.

Directed by Michael Boyle, Tommy's campaign video has now become a YouTube hit - attracting over 80,000 hits in just two days.

For inspiration, Tommy and Michael looked to recent Oscar-nominated 'Wolf of Wall Street', which starred Leonardo Di Caprio and was directed by Martin Scorcese.

A suited Tommy can be seen thrown around a wad of fivers, before to fellow suit-clad students about the Castletown Donkey Derby back in 1994.

In terms of humour and originality, he certainly gets our vote.
