Drunken idiot Shawn Seamus hopes an embarrassing video circulating on the Internet will lead to his big break in show business. Hey, it worked for this guy, right? Right?

If he had actually cleared a stage while Celtic step-dancing, he might have had a chance at fame.

Why would someone want to hire him as a dancer when he totally falls over on top of the other guy? That can't be a good quality in a dancer, can it?

Drunken Celtic dancing, with the dance-offs culminating in fist-fights would be good entertainment. This guy should be punched in the nose.

Wow, what a total arse. I was sort of hoping the DDR kids would give him a kicking. Maybe there's scope there for a second video...

Fake.

Shawn unfortunately appears to be slightly disconnected from reality. Its more sad than anything else. Sort of like the ugly babies link.

Looks like a crappy art school graduate student project to me.

Welcome, and thank you for purchase of the viral website concept builder 5000! To begin, simply fill out this form:

"Hi. My name is _____, and I'm an ameteur _____ trying to blank into the industry, and I've created this _____ to help me do it. I'm super confident, only I don't seem to realize that I have no skill whatsoever."

Done, and not funny the first 50 times. I mean, maybe this would have been clever back when Riverdance was relevant, but now?

It's no William Hung and his Hung Jury, that's for sure.

The guy is obviously kidding. The other videos he has on his site are hilarious.

"Drunken Celtic" is redundant, isn't it?

video circulating on the Internet

Right, just like the weekly newsletter I print out of my house. I hand out free copies if you stop by. I'd say that's circulating the world, but I don't like to brag.

I call shenanigans. This guy may have watched Riverdance once or twice, but nothing more than that. He's fundamentally clueless; if he's trying to hoax people, he should've put more work into it, and if he's trying to make a joke, it's not funny.

what tkchrist said. It's easy to spot a fake nowadays with our years of conditioning watching America's Funniest Home Videos. Watch how he "slips" so conveniently, gets into a "shoving match" that's way too short.

People, if you make fake videos like this, you're gonna have to be a good actor, too.

"if he's trying to hoax people, he should've put more work into it, and if he's trying to make a joke, it's not funny."

Or, if he's acting like a drunk idiot, then it works!

But seriously, what is the deal with that shirt? It's like a puffy shirt gone bad.
