A group of lads horrified their partner-in-crime had bailed on a drinking session decided to take matters into their own hands – by “kidnapping” him.
Ian McLeod told his son Liam, 36, he wouldn’t be joining their 15-strong party headed to Stockport, Greater Manchester, just hours before they set off as he felt he was “too old”.
But the lads “wouldn’t take no for an answer” and hatched a plan to “kidnap” the 56-year-old.
Footage shot inside the van shows pal Steve Adcock demanding “we’ve got to just go for it” as the appropriately-picked A-Team theme tune plays in the background.
When they pull up outside Ian’s house, they barge inside, sling a pillowcase over his head and carry him out of the front door.
The dad shouts for help and grabs onto the minibus’ roof but quickly finds himself getting bundled into the vehicle.
The video ends with the group driving off, managing to pull off their “mission” in under a minute.
Thankfully, Ian saw the funny side and has since admitted he’s glad he was kidnapped because he loved the trip out.
Ian, from Southport, Merseyside, said: "I wasn't really feeling up to it, I'm a lot older than most of them really so I thought I'd sit this one out.
"Some of them were a bit apprehensive because I'm a bit strong. They didn't fancy getting on the wrong side of me. It's a good job it wasn't serious.
"I didn't resist that much. I know the characters and they're good lads so I was happy to go in the end. I'm just glad they remembered my shoes.”
His wife, 56-year-old Yvonne, was also in on the plan and Ian admitted he was relieved she had made sure he wasn’t in his boxers when the lads barged in.
"Once they gave me a beer, I settled down,” he continued. “It was a good day out and I'm glad they kidnapped me in the end because I enjoyed it.
"I don't mind them having a laugh at my expense. I'll make sure I go next time."
The day out on October 9 was organized to lift the spirits of Ian’s other son, 28-year-old Josh McLeod, after a tough few months.
Liam, from Southport, Merseyside, said the group were like the “northern A-team” with their mission.
He said his dad was “pretty shocked” to begin with but that all changed once they put some drink in his hands and gave him his shoes.
The video has since been seen more than 90,000 times on TikTok.
