A young bagpipe player is being heralded for taking down a hate-spewing preacher in the “most Scottish way possible” by drowning out the man’s message with his instrument, according to Joe My God.
The video was sent to JMG by a reader named Mike who was in Scotland with his partner when they noticed the preacher yelling into a microphone about how same-sex marriage has ruined the economy. Then the youngster in a blue T-shirt enters the frame and stands close to him, playing the traditional tune Scotland the Brave on his pipes.
The incident occurred on Market Street in the coastal Scottish town of St. Andrews.
The video was posted to Overheard in St. Andrews by Lachie Blair and uploaded to YouTube on Saturday.
Watch the bagpipe player drown out the preacher in the video posted to Lachie Blair’s YouTube account here:

"It is an intelligence assessment that Putin seeks Trump's victory again," McFaul said. "To me, that's no great insight.

WATCH: Trump invites hockey player on stage — and demands he say the president is a good golfer
President Donald Trump demanded validation from a guest at a reelection campaign rally in Las Vegas on Friday.
The rally, Trump's third in three days, came as Democrats prepared for Saturday's Nevada Caucuses. Nevada Republicans canceled their caucus to protect the president from embarrassment.
At the rally, Trump invited a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team on stage.
"Just tell them, 'Am I a good athlete?'" the 73-year-old said to the crowd.
"And am I a good golfer?" Trump added.
"You are, yes sir," the man replied.
"Whatever you say," he added.
