Watch: The hilarious Welsh immigration test

10 May 2024 1 minute read
Foil, Arms and Hog’s Welsh Immigration test sketch

They’re one of Ireland’s most famous comedy troupes with millions of followers on social media.

Foil, Arms and Hog have built up a worldwide following online and regularly perform sold out shows around the globe.

The comic trio Sean ‘Foil’ Finegan, Conor ‘Arms’ McKenna and Sean ‘Hog’ Flanagan are renowned for their sketches, regularly posting them on their social media platforms.

The group’s name evolved from nicknames each of the members had for each other. Foil (Sean Finegan) is the comedy foil, Arms (Conor McKenna) is ‘All arms and Legs’ and Hog (Sean Flanagan) hogs the limelight.

Their latest sketch posted online yesterday is titled ‘Getting Past Welsh Immigration’ and has quickly become a hit online with thousands of shares.

The video shows the trio in the imagined situation of taking a Welsh immigration test.

We won’t spoil it by posting any of the questions, suffice to say if you’re Welsh you’ll love it.

Watch and enjoy!

It is funny, I’ve seen it, however it does fall back on a lot of your typical Welsh stereotypes and cliches.

That’s the point though, teasing us all a bit with held stereotypes and cliches about other countries (; Also they have to, to make the sketch work world wide, all their many immigration sketches do, have a look and a laugh at their YouTube channel (:

Well, some aren’t true though. Like the Corgi sketch, that wasn’t funny considering the context of how Wales have been treated.

I found it, let’s say, interesting. Not sure what part of Wales the chair’s accent came from? Sounded cross between Barry Welsh and bearer Rangi Ram from Ain’t Half Hot Mum? Saying that, I’ve heard worst stereotypes about Wales that are often malicious, but seeing the Irish are lampooned as much as we are, take it with the good humour intended.

Best bit. When is the prince of Wales, “English” good highlight to everyone there of the problem

Because Wales has no Prince, haven’t since the 1400s. The pretence the English carry on with is designed to belittle the native British and remind them of what has happened to them. The title holds little to no actually power!
