Two mates in Australia have become unlikely heroes after recording themselves foiling a robbery while they were already a few beers into the night.

The video shot by Kane Wiblen starts with James Ross-Munroe talking about how he “busted a plugga” (Aussie slang for ‘broke his flip-flops’).

They then spot the alleged robbery in progress and decide to intervene by taking the getaway car’s keys, which had been left in the ignition.

Police have since arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the incident.

Ross-Munroe has become an unlikely hero with the video appearing on national news and being viewed online over half a million times.

He took to Facebook to say it all deserves a celebration, presumably with beer and a new pair of thongs.

This pretty much calls for a pub night! Haha someone come and drink some beers with us!
