It's 'Father Ted' meets a Gene Kelly movie - and it's unsurprisingly gone viral.

Yes, this clip shows two American priests - the Rev. David Rider, 29, of New York, and the Rev. John Gibson, 28, of Milwaukee - showing off both their tap-dancing and Irish dancing skills at an event in Rome. (Well, you know what they say: when in Rome... have a dance-off!)

"Some people don't think it's appropriate for priests to dance," says Rev. Rider in the video report below. "But we would just refer them to the Bible - where David dances before the Ark of the Covenant, and where the Lord tells us to live with joy. Dance is a great way to express joy."

Amen to that.
