Irish comedy trio Foil, Arms and Hog have stoked online reaction after they posted that they had 'Electric Picnic' tickets for sale on Irish website

The jokers posted a photo of the 'tickets', which showed two Picnic bars with electrical plugs coming out of them.

The post read: "2 Electric Picnic Tickets available, face Value. No time wasters"

The hilarious image has stirred up some response online, with people jokingly bartering them down on their stated price of €175.

One potential buyer wrote: "This is excellent! I'm only looking for a Sunday ticket so only willing to fork out €100. On the off chance the whole world decides not to buy these very reasonably priced tickets let me know", adding "A+ for creativity.. best ad yet".

Another buyer joked "Are these hardcopies?"

Foil Arms and Hog will be playing the comedy stage at Electric Picnic at 6.50pm.

They are also bringing their brand new show to the Tiger Dublin fringe from Sept 9th.

Tickets are available here.
