Cool Runnings is a movie that is universally loved. The feel-good Winter Olympic classic is both hilarious and inspirational, and is one of those movies you just can't pass on the TV guide when you happen to catch a showing, most often on RTE 2 around Christmas.

The four protagonists are all well rounded characters who consistently deliver memorable moments, but one Jamaican bob-sleigher stood out from the rest with his side splitting performance.

This incredibly catchy jingle.

The best insult to a bald man.

"Riiiiiiiise and shine!"

This speech made us genuinely wish we were Jamaican.

"Well the right foot for us is not the Swiss foot!"

"Sanka, ya dead?"

"I'm not smokin', I'm breathin'!"

He's got a few moves as well.


The secret to pull-ups.

"Ya wanna kiss my egg?"

Feel the rythym!
