Such Showmanship!: Leather-Kilted Warrior Performs AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck' On Flamethrowing Bagpipes

June 27, 2013


This is a video of a leather-kilted punk performing AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck' on a set of flamethrowing bagpipes in front of a roaring crowd outside of the Jus Burgers in Fremantle, Western Australia. It would have been weird to have just met this guy and asked him what he was going to do for the rest of the day. "The usual -- put on my shit-kicking boots and kilt, then go perform some AC/DC on my fireball-shooting bagpipes outside the Jus Burger with a bunch of BONUS pelvic thrusting. What about you?" Probably sit here and try to comprehend what the hell you just said to me.

Hit the jump for the video, but WARNING: those pelvis thrusts were *this close* to making me fall in love.

Thanks to Tallon, who watched the entire video with his cursor hovering over the 'close window' button in the event of a high kick.

    This guy was fantastic - we used to watch him outside Freo market every Sunday! Always a crowd pleaser!

    He's not really playing the bagpipe

  • His ancestors are looking down at him with approving eyes from the halls of Valhalla

    WTF. I hope he doesn't plan of making that act a career. Good luck Shamus.

    Nothing says punk like $500 boots.

  • the antagonist

    I don't think punk is the look he's going for.

  • GreyGanado

    I don't see any punk here.


    Mohawk; tattoos; boots; stupid leather vest. Seems pretty "punk" to me.

    I'd say he didn't squeeze all of the drama out of it, that was to be had. Then again, I wouldn't say he blew it, either. Plus he really set the crowd on fire.

    He really Kilt it
