Scots wake up to Irn-Bru 'we can' Euro 2024 pants hanging on washing lines

Scots are waking up only to find IRN-BRU’s We Can pants hanging on washing lines.

The makers of Scotland’s other national drink have said those who find the promotional underwear, which celebrates Scotland’s Euros 24 adventure, can take down the pants and keep them.

With just days to go until Scotland kick off against the host nation Germany, Louise Wilson, 41, from Dundee said: “Absolutely wild to wake up this morning to all these pants.

“We’d all just been talking about the ads in work so I’ve been WhatsApp-ing everybody this morning, everyone wants a pair.”

The pants are becoming a collector’s item after featuring in the soft drink brand’s humorous Mannschaft TV advert.

Michelle Sloan, 44, from Carmunnock, said she was so confused when she saw them on the washing line.

“Absolutely class,” she said. “We’ll be wearing them on Friday to cheer on the team.”

Natasha and Adam Blaney, from Glasgow, thought their neighbours were playing a prank.

Natasha said: “I couldn't believe it when I saw the pants on the line this morning.

“We saw some fans with the IRN-BRU pants at the football on Friday so we thought our neighbours were playing a prank.

“We'll be nicking these and wearing them to cheer on the Scotland team.”

Ken Clarkson, from Stepps said: “Some craic this morning. We’re well and truly ready for Friday.”

Sarah Gibbons, 38, from Glasgow, added: “So IRN-BRU has used our washing line to dry their pants today. Can we keep these?”

New washing lines will also pop up in central Glasgow on Wednesday, with fans invited to pull down the pants in Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow over the past few days.

Kenny Nicholson, Head of Brand at IRN-BRU said: “IRN-BRU has been helping to spread optimism across the country for weeks, and we’ve been inundated with messages from people still keen to get their hands on the pants.

“This is their chance to nick our knickers in final prep for Friday.”
