Robert Carlyle as Begbie in T2 Trainspotting 2

Remind yourself of the time a Trainspotting fan and his child paid tribute to Irvine Welsh's famous character.

Today marks 23 years since Trainspotting was first released, which reminds us of the time one legend decided to dress his son up as Begbie for World Book Day. 

Back in 2017 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...

Still cool, though!
