A hilarious resurfaced clip of Coolio has showed him having to perform with production crew as his backing dancers at the last minute after being booked 'by mistake' on a TV show.

The rapper - who passed away aged 59 on Wednesday - appeared on the Irish chat show Open House in 2002 where staff had to step in at the last minute for the performance. 

Sharing the video on Twitter, comedy writer James Cotter said Coolio was rumoured to have been 'booked by mistake' and the crew realised too late that no backing dancers had been arranged.

James wrote: 'RIP Coolio. Never forget his appearance on Irish daytime chat show Open House, who, legend has it, booked him by mistake.

'They hadn't arranged backing dancers, so he made the middle-age production crew dress up and do it instead. Best TV ever.'

RTÉ presenter Marty Whelan who introduced him then confirmed his Tweet saying: 'Ah Coolio, I remember him with great fondness.

'To have him dancing with the staff was quite the moment. Which they did willingly. The very idea of introducing Coolio on afternoon television shows you how innovative RTÉ has always been…'

The clip shows Marty introducing him, saying: 'To perform this now we have a number of our own crew, Open House crew we could call them including DJ Liz who is over there and the rest of them.

'Ladies and gentleman it is Coolio and Ghetto Square Dance!'
