You wouldn't get away with that sort of thing now.

A clip from an archived episode of RTE's Nationwide has become a massive hit on social media and turned an oblivious bystander into an overnight sensation.

RTE journalist Cian McCormack shared the Nationwide clip on Facebook called Single Women Scarce In Kerry which focused on the plight of single men in Kerry.

A particular scene, set in a bar in Ennistymon County Clare, sees a small baby sitting at the bar with what appears to be a pint of Guinness in his tiny baby hands.

As the video did the rounds on Facebook, it sparked one of the biggest mysteries of 2017.
