GRUNTING AND SQUEALING like the late Michael Jackson, Australian entertainer Hugh Jackman treated fans this afternoon at Hobart International Aiport to a chorus of ‘c’mons‘ and ‘shermows‘ as he made his way through the terminal.
However, he’s not in the cold capital on pleasure – he’s there for business.
James Sutherland, the CEO of Cricket Australia, invited the actor to Hobart to perform a rain dance as the on-field momentum has failed to shift back toward the Australians.
“Hugh isn’t here to shake his cute little booty up and down Salamanca Place, he’s here to shimmy and dougie our way to a drawn Test match.” explained Sutherland.
“He’s asked us to fill his maracas up water from the Derwent and make some room for him on top of the media boxes. He’s also asked that the music played in between the overs is something ‘a bit jazzier’ than the Top 40 we usually subject ticket holders to.”
“But yeah, he’s been able to do it in the past. The CSIRO is 90% sure he caused the Brisbane Floods.”
More to come.
