A groom-to-be from Chesterfield was stripped to his pants by his pals then stuck to traffic lights in a wacky stag do prank.

Drivers were left baffled when they pulled up at the lights in Hazel Grove, Stockport, to see a half-naked man strapped to the metal pole with duct tape and cling film.

The outlandish stags – who were travelling from Chesterfield to Manchester at the weekend – enjoyed a pint in a nearby Wetherspoons pub as onlookers photographed their friend in his patterned pants.

Snaps of the smiling groom appeared on social media throughout the afternoon.

The 41-year-old stag, named only as Lee, was attached to the post for half an hour with his hands behind his back before his mates eventually put him out of his misery.

The group of 13 pals then travelled to Liverpool where they forced him to dress as John Lennon, complete with a miniature guitar, during a night out in the city.

Then, while nursing a hangover on Sunday morning, Lee was painted blue and made to dress as a Smurf for the remainder of the party, which ended in Birmingham.

Lee’s best man said he had been planning the prank for a long time and was feeling “pretty smug” that it had caused such an online stir.

The lads arrived back in Chesterfield on Monday after their banterous weekend.
