Remind yourself of the time a Trainspotting fan and his child paid tribute to Irvine Welsh's famous character on World Book Day.
Today is World Book Day, which means kids across the globe will dressing up as their favourite fictional characters from well-known children's books... if it isn't a snow day that is!
But, last year, when Joe Heenan's son was told to come to school as a character from Scottish literature, he decided to dress him up as the psychotic and definitely NOT child-friendly Begbie from Trainspotting.
See his son's tribute below:
Only in Scotland!
We're trusting his pride and joy hadn't read any of Irvine Welsh's books yet, or seen the Danny Boyle films, but he's still managed to capture the spirit of the character perfectly.
Robert Carlyle would be proud!
Although, one Twitter user did seem to think he bared a striking resemblance to someone else...
That poor Begbie kid, spending the day being asked what book Freddie Mercury wrote.— MostDeaf (@SnoozeActive) March 2, 2017
Still cool, though!
