Offbeat Video

By Kirstie Sutheran


This is the hilarious moment that a drunken man on a stag attempts to ride the mechanical bull.

But despite his dream to conquer the bull, reality sets in and he seems unable to even sit on the beast.

Staggering over, he leaps onto the bull only to slide off and several attempts later he’s not closer to riding the bull. 

Eventually a friends steps in to help him on, but when the bull shifts position the man slips off once again.

The footage was captured by James Higgs, 39, on the first day of a friend’s Portuguese stag do.

James, a franchise owner for DPD, said: “We were on my cousin Brett Coopers stag do in Albufeira, Portugal, there were 21 of us in total.  

“It was filmed on our first day there at Matts Bar in the strip in Albufeira. 

“As you can tell from the video I found it hilarious to the point where my stomach was hurting due to me laughing so hard.  

“The rest of the guys were the same – Damon had probably had about 14 drinks plus shots up to this point. 

“The next day he watched the video and realised what he had done and found it very amusing.

“We were all looking forward to a bit of sun and a few beverages and when we got there it was glorious sunshine so the alcohol was flowing well.  

“We only went to four bars in but at 14 drinks plus shots later and we ended up at Matts Bar where they had a mechanical bull and the rest was video gold as we were all left in hysterics as Damon attempted to mount the bull.

“I’m not sure he would have ever got on if someone hadn’t have stepped in to help.”
