Buddies Hijack Climate Protest & Steal Their Banner in Hilarious Drunken Prank

One of the most obnoxious weather cult groups in the world is Just Stop Oil in England. They’re the group that is responsible for pouring soup on famous and beautiful works of art, presumably because they’re “oil paintings.” (Smartness is not a prominent trait with these global warming nutters.) They also block traffic to protest the weather, which does nothing more than irritate everyone. They’ve literally gotten people killed by blocking ambulances from getting back to the hospital. So, when a group of drunken heroes disrupted their latest protest, we couldn’t help but take notice.

JSO is such an annoying and obnoxious group that they disrupted the Pride parade in London the other day, despite the fact that the rainbow/alphabet mafia people are their communist allies. JSO tweeted, “JSO has been staging daily protests since April 24, disrupting high-profile events including the Chelsea Flower Show, the Gallagher Premiership rugby final at Twickenham and the World Snooker Championship.”

What a bunch of idiots.

Anyway, 33-year-old Charlie Pearce is a builder and landscaper from Surrey, England. He’s getting married in September, for which we offer him our wholehearted congratulations. Thirteen of Charlie’s friends decided to throw a bachelor party for him on the island of Ibiza in Spain. They got Charlie good and drunk before they even began the trip. Charlie was also dressed in a costume mocking Pride month: head-to-toe in pink with a floppy rainbow hat and a tutu. (Don’t you just adore drunken British soccer hooligans?) We assume that Charlie’s fianceé picked out the outfit for him so he’d remain faithful during his bachelor party trip.

As Charlie—who was seriously loaded—and his 13 friends were towing their wheelie suitcases to the airport, they ran smack dab into the middle of an obnoxious JSO protest. The weather cultists were doing a “slow march” to block traffic to the airport and annoy as many people as possible. Nonplussed, Charlie joined the protest!

He made his way up to the front of the JSO group and was helping carry their “Just Stop New Oil” banner. Charlie began pumping his fist in the air and yelling, “We love you, oil!” Which must have been really confusing for his new friends in JSO who hate oil.

The group continued plodding forward and blocking traffic, wondering why their ally dressed all in pink with a tutu, was chanting, “We love oil!” Then, our drunken hero Charlie stole the protesters’ banner and ran away with it.

Ever since then, Charlie and his 13 buddies have been treating the Just Stop Oil banner like a plastic garden gnome. They’ve been posing for pictures with it wherever they go. After stopping for a photo with the banner at the subway in London, they took it to Ibiza with them for the weekend. They then took another photo with it once they landed in Spain.

“To be honest, I was actually willing to just go home after that start!” said Charlie.

The stolen banner might even put in an appearance at Charlie’s wedding in September. Here’s hoping. Not all heroes wear capes. Some of them wear a tutu, get really drunk, and disrupt the most obnoxious protest group on the planet. Well played, Charlie. Well played.

Here’s the moment when Charlie swipes the JSO banner:
