update: The video of this is now available.
As reported by the Brisbane Times, Andrew Hansen raised his hand as a member of the press and was selected to ask a question. What Wales didn’t know is that Hansen is part of the cast of a wildly popular public television show in Australia called The Chaser’s War on Everything, a weekly half hour satire/prank show.
Hansen said “Ah, Jimmy, um, look I just have 10 questions,” and then fired off ten questions in a row, not waiting for answers (It’s normal at events like this for reporters to ask a follow up question at the same time as the initial question to save time). This is a regular prank by the cast of the show, called “Mr. Ten Questions.”
Second, how do our computers compare to the ones in America?
Fourth, Mac or PC – do you really give a shit?
Eighth, Jessica Rowe and Peter Overton – will it last?
To his credit Wales attempted to respond to four of the questions.
