A GROUP of very cheeky Irish lads were the talk of Twitter in Ireland after somehow sneaking a bare backside onto RTE’s Rose of Tralee broadcast.
On first viewing, it all seemed innocent enough.
Eager to encourage people viewing at home all over Ireland to get involving in the annual pageant, RTE invited anyone having a viewing party to send in photos of themselves enjoying the show.
Most of the pictures sent in were innocent enough, including that of three male Irish dancers, who sent in a snap of themselves along with their World Irish Dancing trophy.

However, after a closer look at the photo sent in, fans began to notice something rather risqué – and entirely deliberate – going on in the background.
RTE didn’t know it, but there was a full moon on display in the background of the picture, if you catch our drift.

Evidently eager to have a little fun, the group had snuck a rather cheeky Easter Egg into the image they sent in.
And once fans spotted the offending object, it was soon being posted all over social media.

Getting yourself and your mates on television is one thing but getting one of their backsides broadcasted to millions is a whole other level of amusement/bemusement.
Thankfully most people saw the funny side in what was, in fairness, a very funny stunt.

“I love Ireland,” one fan wrote online.
Though the quartet are unlikely to face any further punishment over the incident, though RTE may take a closer look at any pictures sent in before deciding to broadcast them.
