Harp’s ‘Pure Here & There’ Campervan rolls into Belfast city centre

‘How does Belfast have five quarters?’ and other such important questions asked in new comedy short from The Ulster Fry

This week sees the release of the final episode of Harp’s online comedy series ‘Pure Here & There’, as the two intrepid roadtrippers complete their tour of NI by motoring into Belfast city centre in their trusty, sky blue campervan.

On a freakishly sunny day in Belfast they take in the sights and sounds of the big smoke and are given a cheeky welcome by the peerless Pamela Ballantine.

Facebook fans of satirical website The Ulster Fry and the iconic lager Harp have, these past seven weeks, been treated to weekly instalments of ‘Pure Here & There’ episodes every Thursday lunchtime.

Part travelogue, part meditation on friendship and all very silly, the seven-part series was written and directed by the creative minds behind The Ulster Fry. The comedy shorts track the exploits and adventures of two lads – one a bit of a culchie and the other his city-slicker BFF – as they navigate their way around the six counties in the Harp campervan, stopping off to take in the spectacular views and landmarks that adorn the limited edition ‘Pure Here’ Harp cans.

When that same van broke down in the wilds of Armagh, the two fellas were grateful to be able to call on the generosity (and unmatched power) of Ulster and Ireland legend Rory Best to give them a helpful push towards Armagh Planetarium.

In Antrim, they stopped Jackie Fullerton for a quick question and ended up getting far more than they bargained for. In Fermanagh, they wondered whether it was the infamous McLaughlin brothers who were responsible for plastering Enniskillen Castle, while up in the North West they discovered how the Peace Bridge really got that name.

Whether trying to get to grips with Co Down’s legendary Magic Road, balking at the extortionate price of a bite to eat in Hillsborough, or merely trying to get a phone signal in Tyrone, their good natured approach to all things ‘Pure Here’ has seen the two lads learn that no matter what county you call home or what part of the community you come from… it’s hard to beat a pint of Harp and a packet of crisps.

Watch all seven episodes of ‘Pure Here & There’ here back to back:

And we have it on good authority that the boys might well be back for a Christmas special. So stay tuned...
