English man celebrating 21st birthday in Ireland gets head stuck in leprechaun photo board

(Picture credit:

POOR Danny Melody. While on holiday in Dublin, the young man from Cheshire, became stuck in what his friends call “the Leprechaun Trap.”

Melody, who was celebrating his 21st birthday in Ireland’s capital city,  decided to stick his head into the leprechaun photo prop for a funny picture, but then struggled to get his head back out.

With his head stuck in a leprechaun photo board, his friends filmed the traumatic experience and then posted the video to YouTube.

More Entertainment:

According to an article in The Daily Mail, Danny said: “People have always taken the mick out of me and called me a big head, so it is nothing new really – now I just get called swell head instead.

My friends were all laughing at me and taking photos, but loads of people walking past started to do it as well – it was as if I was a freak show. I was quite drunk at the time so I wasn’t that embarrassed, but I am now looking back at it.”
