WATCH: The Irish Version of the Jersey Shore Is Jaw-Droppingly Homoerotic

When it comes down to it, the guys of the Jersey Shore are fairly uninvolved with one another—at least in a way that suggests being gay. Sure, they go to the gym, tan in excess and wax their bodies to the point of prepubescence. But they’re not really into homoerotic stuff like ass slaps and nut grabs.

Cue Tallafornia, an Emerald Isle rip-off of the Seaside Heights classic. The title is a play on the Dublin neighborhood Tallaght, which, according to, is “well-known for its unique blend of working-class Dublin savvy.”

In other words, it’s like Staten Island.

But this isn’t just Vinny and Ronny with Irish brogues or an untanned Snooki drinking a Guinness. In the clip below, even the voice-over narrators say it’s like the start of a gay porn. (“They’re just waiting for those pesky girlfriends to go home!”)

At one point, the lads grab one of the boys out of a hot tub, rip off his trunks and flail around with his naked, mayonnaise-white body.

We’re sure their mums are so proud.

    Ya know vinny and pauly d have been in bed together and they joke about being gay together and loving each other all the time this last season. I know…I know…I’m an addict :(

  • Wolfgang

    Just to manage your expectations- the ‘voiceover’ in the clip from Gawker is not the actual one of the show. It’s just two random YouTuber’s having fun with it. :)

  • Haters

    Why you gotta rag on we pasty assed Irish boys? God bless anyone who isn’t a tanaholic.

  • D P

    @Haters: I love a tan, but just love that milky-whiteness as well! My mouth’s watering right now, just thinking about it!

  • christopher di spirito

    Hot men. Too bad the fantasy is squashed with the presence of all the women. Could’ve been an Irish version of Spike-TV’s ‘Ultimate Fighter’.

  • Marie Cohn

    We can see for ourselves if the Irish Curse is a myth. Jay strategically places a towel in front of his todger when he high-fives his bunk mate…

    I grew up Presbyterian, a deteriorated religion populated by WWII vets. It’s only by diligent study that I’m getting reconnected to the bawdier, livlier, snarkier Celtic traditions Presbyterianism has labored to suppressed. I thoroughly enjoyed this Irish Snark-fest!!!

    Even bringing up this show is just more of Queerty’s writers’ Eirophobia.

  • Steven

    “This is what I imagine the start of a gay porn film is like”
    “Suck each other’s dicks!”

    Nah, I’m pretty sure you have done more than just “imagine”.

  • CBRad

    @anon: Not to unfairly jump to conclusions, but is that your way of saying you enjoyed slumming for a bit?

  • mimi

    Is this a joke??

  • Jeff

    OK this was completely pointless.

  • BillCooney

    The classic joke? What do you call a Irish gay man? A Gay-lick!

  • Evan

    That hot tub scene was pretty damned HOT. Erin go hiney!

  • bagooka

    I’m sure they’re not into it.

  • leprechaun

    @BillCooney: Their names must be Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick?

  • arbiter

    The voice-over is fecking high-larious.

  • ganymeade

    1/4 Irish and I got the pixie nose, reddish hair, green eyes and white white white never tan skin. I am proud thank you. The voice over is hilarious. Those boys want it bad!

  • Irishguy

    There’s a truism in NYC which states that if as a gay man you haven’t picked up a guy by 11pm, just hit the Irish bars on 2nd and 3rd Aves and any guys is yours.
    In fact many foreigners living in Ireland comment on what they see as the obvious bisexuality of Irish men.
