Michael Fassbender revealed his hilarious reaction to seeing the band playing his 40th birthday in Fossa, Kerry to US TV host Jimmy Fallon.

The Kerry actor's sister organised a 'surprise' bash for him, even though he knew about it as she had to ensure he would show up!

He told Fallon his sister called him down to see something prior to the birthday kicking off and he revealed his reaction to seeing the lead singer of popular Irish 80s themed band Spring Break.

"[I came down stairs] and there was this guy dressed up in mirrored sunglasses and like an admiral suit, i was thinking woah, this got weird.  What the hell?  Is this a stripper?"

Despite his initial reaction he said they were "excellent".

Fassbender also spoke about racing a Ferrari although "I don't have a car actually myself," he laughs, and reveals all on playing two characters in Alien: Covenant.
