The Irish are known for their dark sense of humour, but a recently deceased Dublin man named Shay Bradley took it to a whole new level by being the last laugh at his own funeral. Before his death, he ordered that after his coffin was lowered to the ground, a pre-recorded message should be heard aloud. To the mourners watching, it seemed as if Bradley was screaming for help from his own grave.
The morbid joke gave family and friends a nice moment on a gloomy day. In the video posted to Reddit, Bradley can be heard shouting "Hi?!" before the knock sounds. "Let me out," he seems to be calling from his coffin. Is that the priest I hear? The mourners are caught on camera, first looking stunned, then bursting out in laughter.
Here is a picture of the legend himself. My dad, Shay Bradley. It was his dieing wish that we played this at his funeral. What a man.... To make us all laugh when we were incredibly sad..... He was some man for one man.... Love you forever Poppabear #Shayslastlaugh pic.twitter.com/YkG2ecKAaL— Andrea (@Andrea36496119) October 13, 2019
