6 Of The Worst TV Ad Acting Performances From Irish Sports Stars

Jonathon Woodgate has received a bit of negative press over last couple of days, mostly because he is terrible at acting.

The former Real Madrid centre-back decided it would be a good idea to star in this surreal advert for cut-price Middlesbrough season tickets; it wasn't.


Woodgate's horrific display is the inspiration for the following nostalgic run-down of some of the more unfortunate acting attempts from our countries stars.... This is the Irish Sporting raspberries.

Padraig Harrington has fallen out of favour with the sporting gods of late, dropping dramatically in the world rankings, from a lofty 3rd place, to a lowly 178th. The dramatic deterioration is almost certainly a direct result of this awful commercial for a 'Golf Swing Shirt'.


This slightly lecherous offering from the elders of Irish football is one for the ages. Carlsberg don't do horrible acting, but if they did ....



Jack Charlton features again in this commercial for shredded wheat, we'd like to see him try to smuggle this lot through customs, though he'd probably be okay if he flew from Knock.


This is great; Niall Quinn flogging broadband in a field sporting quite a fetching jumper, languidly draped across his shoulders.



Robbie's use of the word dee-fence is almost unforgivable in this bastardisation of the beautiful game.



Finally here's none other than Rory McElroy; Irelands favourite curly-headed son making an utter show of himself.
