They were trapped for three days before being rescued by snowplows.
Of course, there’s nothing quite like yelling “Wonderwall” with your friends at a bar – but imagine if you were strength to listen to it.
For three days.
And it’s a bunch of covers.
This was the case for 60 unfortunate man who got trapped at the Tan Hill Inn after a blizzard dropped three feet of snow in Swaledale, England, according to CNN. All the roads leading to the pub – which has the distinction of being the highest pub in the UK – were completely blocked by snowdrifts.
However, the Inn was prepared for such an event and even had Noasis, an Oasis cover band, on hand to keep guests entertained throughout the storm. The group had been booked for a concert Friday night when the storm hit, resulting in a three-day residency at the pub.
The one who saves me
Andrew Hields, co-owner of the Tan Hill Inn, said CNN that the establishment being off-grid, it had its own electrical system which kept the party going during the snowstorm. Thus, in addition to the successes of the Liam and Noel Gallagher lookalikes, the Tan Hill Inn was able to entertain guests with karaoke and anecdotes.
“They are all in a good mood, they all eat and drink well,” said Andrew Hields, co-owner of the pub. CNN.
Finally, the snowplows were able to clear the roads to the pub and save the guests after three days, Gizmodo reported, allow them to leave and – With a bit of luck – listen to something else that is not Oasis.
While this hilarious event ended in a positive way, it is probably just another example of impact of anthropogenic climate change on extreme weather events. And even if we knew it could cause floods and droughts, no one could ever have predicted that it would force some people to listen to a band of Oasis covers for three straight days.
