Real life Delboy! Hilarious moment a drinker falls in Lancashire pub echoing Only Fools and Horses sketch
This drinker felt like a right plonker after recreating a scene from Only Fools – when he leaned back to rest on a pool table that had just been moved and fell on his backside.
It’s considered one of the iconic moments in British television – wannabe yuppie Delboy and his dim witted mate Trigger visit a London wine bar but, hilariously, whilst ‘playing it nice and cool’ Del falls through the open bar hatch.
Road sweeper Trigger, uncomfortable in his suit, looks round confused until wheeler dealer Delboy pops back up again and they scarper a very un-cushty fashion.
In this case the leather jacketed drinker doesn’t fall through a bar but is rather left spreadeagled in the centre of The Arden Inn in Acrrington, Lancs.
He is so busy bantering with his mates that he doesn’t notice bar staff covering the poll table up and wheeling it away.
A few seconds later he leans back and, finding nothing more than air to support him, hits the deck – covering himself with his pint.
But, just like market trader Del he recovers quickly and once back on his feet he is greeted by laughing mates and claps on the back.
