'Lunatic!': Man Hitches Ride on Back of Dublin Bus

A man was spotted clinging to the back of a bus in Dublin, Ireland, on May 18, prompting laughter and disbelief from witnesses.

Video of the daring fare-dodger was shot by Brendan Leavy, who told Storyful he was on his way to pick up ice cream with his kids when he spotted the man standing at a bus stop acting “a bit weird.” As the bus pulled away, the man ran and grabbed onto the back of it, Leavy said.

The kids are heard cracking up laughing at the bizarre sight, with one saying, “I mean, that’s how you get a free bus,” while Leavy calls the man a “lunatic.” Credit: Brendan Leavy via Storyful
