Take a break and check out these lads vaping big style on RTÉ News

Like a sauna.

ABOUT HALF WAY through RTÉ’s Nine O’Clock News last night, Eileen Dunne started into what looked like a standard report.

She threw to a reporter who was going to tell us that there’s now evidence that vaping and e-cigarettes help people give up smoking. But it wasn’t a normal segment:

Throwing absolute shapes and making it rain, vaping-style.

The viewers immediately copped that these lads were worth watching

And that the RTÉ News rarely sees this level of gangsta

It was a serious report, no doubt, but the lads had everyone in stitches

Never had vaping been such an artform for the cameras

One of them described it as a hobby, too

“Ah… The 9 O’Clock News” – only in Ireland

So gangster.
