Still Game Actor Back Pulling Pints in New Advert for Wrestling Show

Gavin Mitchell brings pub to a standstill with iconic line from hit TV show

GLASGOW, Scot., 10 February, 2022 - Scottish TV legend Gavin Mitchell, best known for playing "Boaby the Barman" in sitcom Still Game, is back behind a Glasgow bar in a new advert for Insane Championship Wrestling.

The 2-minute advert aired today across ICW’s digital channels to promote the company's Barred event at The Garage on Sunday 24 April where every match will take place inside a steel cage. It shows a chaotic scene in Glasgow pub Lebowskis, as a slew of professional wrestlers brawl through the venue, avoiding flying pints along the way.

The final straw for the barman - whose back is turned to the carnage throughout - is when a wrestler dives off a table, landing on a sea of patrons below.

The camera cuts to the bar as the barman turns round to reveal himself as Mitchell, who delivers his iconic line, “You’re barred!”.

Fellow BBC Scotland star Lee Greig - known to wrestling fans as Jack Jester - makes a cameo at the end to condemn his colleague's actions.

Tickets for Barred go on sale at 10am on Monday 14 February at Fans can also watch ICW on-demand on Peacock in the US and WWE Network in the UK.
