Photos That Make You Think ‘WTH’!!

By , May 25, 2015 11:58 am

With social media today, it’s not difficult to find photographs on a daily basis that range anywhere between somewhat awkward to downright ‘What The Hell‘. Below are 20 images that are on the upper end of this scale.

The problem might be that Japanese fashion revolves around skirts that are too shortI’m not sure who is more creepy – the photographer, or the guy in the magazine shop standee looking up?
We would be nothing without our fans – that’s why we love them so deeply…
One happy cult family riding a tree
The eye shadow look good – not sure about the unfortunate wall shadow
It’s just his thumb folks… just his thumb
This is why I would never have flesh colored leather on my car seats – it could cause people to get the wrong idea

I’m not even talking about computers or social media here – simple texting can be challenging for the ‘age-challenged’. I recently caught the following gallery of very funny texts between parents and their offspring.

All I can say is LOL (Lots Of Love) and WTF (Well That’s fantastic) !!  🙂

Spooky Find In Grandparents Attic – Preserved Dead Body!

Well, this is one of those classic ‘What The Hell’ Moments…

But the story gets weirder and weirder as the facts emerge.

When a 10-year-old boy found a human mummy in a sarcophagus in a corner of his grandparents’ attic, it left German authorities in a state of bewilderment.

A number of tests have been performed on the remains, and as a result (through CT scan) it was discovered that the well-preserved human skull had an arrow sticking out of the left eye socket. According to local newspaper Kreiszeitung, there were also large parts of a skeleton with the arms crossed over the chest.

To make things even more confusing, a ‘death mask’ also found in the box and X-rays show a metal layer covering the bones. At this stage, the gender of the 1.49-metre long human remains is unknown.

It is thought that the boy’s late father, Lutz-Wolfgang Kettler, might have brought the mummy back from North Africa in the 1950s.
According to pathologists and researchers, things just don’t add up!!
The mummy has not been unwrapped for fear of damaging the remains, but the bandages used actually date from the 20th century and are machine-woven. According to pathologist Andreas Nerlich of Munich’s Bogenhausen hospital, “the skull and the bones are real, the mummy is a fake, made from one or several human bodies… What we have are questions upon questions”.

The mummy is examined through with the help of modern science. (Pic: AAP)

Police and prosecutors from Diepholz, Lower Saxony state, are waiting for more information on where the body came from. Police spokesman, Frank Bavendiek told German news agency DPA, “We’ll wait until we know how old the bones are… If they are a few hundred years old, then it’s a mummy and we won’t investigate”.

So let me ask you, dear readers – When was the last time you snooped around your Grandparents’ attic?

My Dog Didn’t Eat My Homework! My iPhone Is In A Cow’s Bum!!

By , November 19, 2012 11:01 pm

Just in case you missed this one, dear constant readers!!

Many people have many excuses for many things… the boy who claims to his teacher, “My dog ate my homework”, “I’m only overweight because I’m happy”… the list goes on.

cows01

But what about some of the weird and wonderful excuses that insurance companies hear through their claims processes?

cows06
The British website, mobileinsurance, say that they have heard it all, and as such has decided to publish some of the most far-fetched claims it has received over the last 12 months.

Each and every claim has been investigated, and believe it or not, many of the most outrageous claims were accepted!!

For instance, a farmer claims to have lost his iPhone up the rear end of a cow while using it as a torch during calving.

In another case, a woman lost her Nokia when she baked it into a Victoria sponge cake intended for her daughter’s birthday party.

Or what about the couple on a cruise who tried to photograph themselves acting the parts of Jack and Rose in the “I’m the king of the world” scene from the epic movie, Titanic… but in the process, lost their phone over the side and into the deep blue.

cows02

Sometimes honesty might not be the best policy? Imagine the embarrassment (or lack thereof) of the twenty-something woman from Bristol who openly admitted to insurers that she had worn out the vibrate function on her BlackBerry Bold 9900 by using it as an “adult toy”. REALLY?? – Did she receive that many phone calls?

cows05

Another lady stated that her Samsung Galaxy was snatched by a sneaky seagull while she was walking her dog on an island in South Wales.

cows04

Wait there’s more!! – the man who told his insurance company that his iPhone had been stolen by monkeys at a Safari Park while he was filming them… a construction worker who claimed that his phone had dropped down the toilet (this one I believe – I’ve seen it happen!! *embarrassed smile*)

Super Aussie Pete to Attend 2012 Singapore Blog Awards – With Undies Inside!

By , July 18, 2012 1:45 am

Source: Aussie Pete

”The time has come”, the Walrus said…

My, how time does fly! And so does Superman… or should I say – SUPER AUSSIE PETE!! – OK, OK… Perhaps I should explain!

Look - Up in the Sky!!!

Look - Up in the Sky!!!

After having ‘stepped down’ this year (the fifth of the annual OMY Singapore Blog Awards), I was watching the hive of activity and keen interest via the blog awards website. In fact, I was following with some degree of sadness and perhaps even ‘withdrawal’ at not playing my part.

Of course, I have been mainly focused on what’s been happening in my category – Best What The Hell Blog – and wondering just who my successor may be. But at the same time, with so many very good friends involved once again, I have been very interested in how every blogger in the Top 10 will fare in their respective categories.

I was hoping all along that I would perhaps be honoured with an invitation to the Awards ceremony, which is always one of the ‘must attend’ events of the Singapore cyberspace calendar. It’s always alive with the “who’s who” of the SG blogosphere – This year will be no exception, and the quality of bloggers looks like the talent will be the best yet to be vying to take out the crowns.

Well, herein lies my complete surprise!! More-so for me then anyone else…

superbloggers01

Some weeks back, I received communication from the Awards organizers, to tell me that I was being honoured (along with four other talented writers in their own right – and very great friends – Catherine, Yong Wei, Eunice and Christine), with a ‘Super Blogger’ award!!

What the??!! – I won an award without even entering?

superbloggers01 (2)All jokes aside – of course I am once again more than humbly taken aback. Being recognized for something that I enjoy doing, is almost like highway robbery right?

According to OMY, I am being honoured with this ‘Super Blogger’ award, for being an “exemplar of the value of information- and experience-sharing via your blog content”. In short, I think it’s kind of the reason behind why so many people seem to enjoy reading my blog. 🙂

So my wish was granted – not only will Sammi and I be attending the Awards ceremony again, but there will be a special segment in which I will receive the accolades.
The Awards this year will be happening this Saturday afternoon, 21st July at the Singapore Food Trail at the Singapore Flyer. The GOH will be Mr. Heng Swee Keat, Minister for Education and theme is ‘Superheroes’, but like I told the organizers, do NOT expect me to attend wearing my underpants on the outside… eeeewwww – actually the thought is quite gross, right?

Good luck to all of the finalists – remember, you are all already winners!! Look forward to seeing you there.

Following below, are the answers that I gave to the OMY when they reached out to let me know about the ‘Super Blogger’ award. The same responses can also be found on their official blog site here.

How do you feel about receiving the Super Blogger Award?

Of course, I’m absolutely honoured to be recognized as one of Singapore’s ‘Super Bloggers’, but I guess that goes without saying… after a lengthy association with OMY, I have shared in many amazing and exciting adventures online and off – moments that will forever be etched in my memories. After collecting first place in my category in both the 2010 and 2011 blog awards, I thought it would be impossible to top such success and recognition, so opted to ’step down’ in 2012 to allow others the opportunities that I have been afforded. To be recognized as a ‘Super Blogger’ as part of this year’s blog awards and for the impact that I have had on the Singapore Blogosphere over the past five years, although it is very surprising, I think it also reflects the hard work and dedication that I have made over this last half decade – albeit a huge enjoyment at the same time. The biggest honour comes from seeing so many readers coming back to my website day in and day out – I must be doing something right with my content :p

super-blogger-peterWhat did you gain most during these years of blogging? How did you counter-attack any weariness that deters you from blogging? (if any at all)

Aside from the buzz that I get from making friends (once again online and off), some of them life long strong associations, to see my readership grow so exponentially over the years is an absolute blast. Interestingly enough, and many thanks to OMY, blogging over recent years has taken me to different countries, has seen me partake in dozens and dozens of media events, has put me on TV on many occasions – both recorded and live, I have appeared in every major newspaper in Singapore (English and Chinese) numerous times for my opinions and insights, numerous magazines have covered my articles, my family and me, I have filmed vodcasts, participated in too many photoshoots to even count, participated in live radio interviews, I have been guest writer for and been quoted on hundreds of websites and of course, I have been rewarded many times over financially and with invaluable awards and prizes from just about every kind of industry imaginable (and this is just in Singapore – dozens of the largest global media organizations aggregate my work every day, quote my articles and writings and conduct interviews for my advice or opinion). The problem is how to keep up with life as a ‘pseudo-celebrity’, while maintaining a very demanding professional career, spending quality time with a beautiful and loving young family and also dedicating thousands of hours to community volunteer work and grassroots activities.

The answer to this for me, is blogging has always been my ‘escape’… my means to unwinding and de-stressing. My professional life sees me dealing with other regions, so late night work and conference calls are often the norm (and have been for more than a decade) – this has taught me to survive on very little sleep. It may surprise many to know that on weeknights I often don’t sleep until around 3am and arise for the new workday around 7:00am (an average of just 4-hours shut-eye every week night). Then my wonderful wife usually let’s me recharge with a late sleep in on Saturday morning. Blogging usually occurs when everyone else in my household (and many people all over Singapore) are safely snug and sleeping in their beds. Like I said, it’s not a chore… it’s a way to relax – the day it becomes a chore, is the day I stop blogging.

How do you think bloggers can play a part in contributing to society, either in general or in any specific area?

As I’ve written before, bloggers and aspiring writers should always remain true to themselves. Write about what you are passionate about, what you know. There is so much information that everyone has (whether they know it or not) that others may want to tap in to. Share your experiences, offer advice, but always, always – remain humble. Of course, aside from just writing, I cannot recommend enough that so much self-fulfillment comes from volunteer and charity community work.

Given the many other social media platforms available these days, what do you think is/are the most valuable aspect(s) about blogs that the other channels not able to surpass/replace?

Nothing can be as unique as blogging when it comes to social media (at least not with the platforms available today) – Facebook is generally only going to attract your FB friends (unless you are competent with running viral campaigns), Twitter is always restricted to 140 characters, many apps and platforms will keep track of where you are and where you check-in. The list goes on of course, and there is always a place for every platform… mostly the integration of them all. But at the end of the day, a blog is your own personal journal – you own the content, you own the design. it is very personal… and with dedication and a little hard work, you can corner a very real sizeable chunk of the search engine traffic as well as obtain loyalty from regular readers and subscribers base (with your very own website). This can also lead to attention from other websites, other social media users and can offer some amount of credibility from others around what you write, what you think and how you portray it. If having a voice that wants to be heard is your reason for blogging – then you are on the right platform.

If you are a Superhero, who do you think you will be and why? What kind of Superpower do you think you will possess? (If none of the existing superheroes match what you have in mind, create your own and tell us!)

Haha – I’d like to believe it would be someone cool and strong… to be honest, given my ‘dual’ (or even more) personalities and often contradicting activities, I’d have to be a little boring and say ‘Superman’. The reason is that the huge difference between the unassuming mild-mannered Clark Kent and the crime fighting strength and confidence of Superman, perhaps best reflects the difference between a senior vice president in a bank by day, and a sometimes ‘wannabe’ pseudo-celebrity that mixes it up with the very cool people and culture that the Singapore Blogosphere has now become – these are worlds apart. Never do these two personas meet… and any time they do come close, I always do my best to divert the attention. So yes, mild manner Clark Kent and superhero, Superman (but don’t ask me to wear my undies on the outside – eeewww, what a horrible thought) :p

Of course, my wife Sammi is my very own Lois Lane – although she is completely aware and familiar with (and tolerant of) all of the multiple personalities.

Proof Of An Idiot! Check Out My Forehead Tattoo! Radio Sponsors?

By , May 2, 2012 2:15 am

I ask you, dear readers – what on this earth motivates someone to get ink permanently etched in to their forehead? For the life of me, it’s one of those strange phenomena that I just can’t seem to comprehend.

Thinking more seriously about it, I contemplated what I might look like with a forehead tattoo. Even more thought provoking, is what wise words would I decide upon. The following is the result of my deep reflection on the subject:

headtattoopete01

OK, so maybe you don’t want to ever get a real job again… or maybe you want the world to see you and identify you as the criminal that you probably are… but I just wonder how you feel each morning you wake up and look in the mirror – is there any regret? Have you ever wondered to yourself, “Yes, I’m an Idiot!” or “Gee – that was pretty stupid of me!”?

Well, the old forehead tattoo seems to be getting quite popular with inmates of various prisons around the USA.

The latest addition to this very scholarly group of creative geniuses, is one 33-year old woman from Ohio… at least Jamie Calloway, who has been arrested for “misdemeanor menacing by stalking” seems to have a religious message for her fellow prisoners (she allegedly slashed her victim’s tyres, constantly called the victim’s phone and sent her packages in the mail – her victim is a corrections officer that Calloway took a liking to during a previous stint in the lock-up).

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you, the angelic Jamie Calloway:

headtattoo08

Joining Ms Calloway in the “Idiot Forehead Tattoos” Hall of Fame are the following very friendly looking folks…

First up, is 21-year old Californian, Patrick Brooks – in jail for burglary, forgery and receiving stolen property (oh, and parole violation) – really nice guy right? I’m sure they will love his attitude tattoo inside (I’ve censored here to protest the innocent) 🙂

headtattoo06a

Next up… like father like son – I bet he grew up saying “I wanna be just like my Dad one day!!” Well, you achieved your goal, young fella!

headtattoo04

This one’s kind of surprising, because I don’t reckon he looks much like the criminal type. In the first mug shot on the left, Robert Norton Kennedy from South Carolina just had the quote from Matthew 19:26 (“With God All Things Are Possible”) – he had been arrested for assault and battery. The next time the 51-year old was arrested (for larceny), he had expanded his work of art with musical notes and references to passages from Psalms and Romans:

headtattoo01

The next Hall-of-Famer, is 48-year old, David Jonathan Winkelman. His crime was just a misdemeanor of operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent. The larger crime was that many years ago, he accepted a challenge from a radio disc jockey who offered listeners a six-figure payout if they tattooed the station’s call letters and logo on their forehead. He now proudly and permanently promotes “93 Rock,” the “Quad City Rocker”.

Hmmm – I wonder how much Gold 90FM in Singapore would pay me to do the same for them? I’m a huge fan – come on my friends, father and son team, the Richmonds (Gold Breakfast) or Tim or Maggie (Drive Home) – why not make me an offer??

headtattoo03

I’ve got nothing to add to the Alabama man’s message to the world below:

headtattoo05

Finally – this guy must be a real genius indeed!! Not to mention very cowardly!! 27-year old Jerome Smith was arrested for striking an 8-month pregnant woman in the head with a gun. He’ll get everything he deserves – final proof that criminality and idiocy to in fact go hand in hand…

Blog Awards – Aussie Pete Retires And Advice For WTH Bloggers

By , April 12, 2012 1:34 am

This article was originally posted at Aussie Pete Legacy Blog

OK dear friends and readers, here’s the scoop! After a very lengthy association with the OMY Singapore Blog Awards (which celebrates their 5th anniversary in 2012) and after being short-listed to the Top 10 and collecting the first place award in my category for consecutive years (2010 and 2011), it’s time for me to step aside and open the ‘Best WTH Category’ up to other nominees.

back-to-back-winner01

Be sure to visit the Blog Awards site to register your own blog for the 2012 awards, or to nominate your favourite blogger.

Don’t be mistaken – I am not going to stop blogging, nor is my ongoing collaboration with the OMY team over. In fact, it has never been stronger. I will continue to mirror my main legacy blog at my OMY Star Blogger home and will still attend various events and outings (time permitting)… in other words, you will not be getting rid of my ugly mug that easily – I will definitely see my OMY friends from time to time (as will Sammi and the boys).

2012blogawards01

Over the last few years, I have been absolutely blessed with the opportunities that OMY and the Singapore blogosphere have afforded me. From collecting prizes including vacations, audio visual gear, make-overs, computers and lasting memories of trips to Hong Kong (2010) and Australia (2011), just to name a few (I’m running out of shelf space to put my custom-made trophies by Tan Swie Hian)… to creating life-long friendships with fellow bloggers (now some of my best mates) and taking part in media events – such as the Urban Homme Challenge and (the now historic) bathtub race in Victoria Harbour (HK) – I’m sure that Ang Geck Geck just rolled her eyes at me again 🙂

bigsplash01

I was going to list out all of the activities, events and appearances I’ve participated in since 2009, but soon realized that I would probably lose everyone after about 300 rows… the memories for me, however, will remain eternal. Not to mention all the media clippings that Sammi (who also doubles up as my PR agent) has saved… numerous vodcasts; newspapers – Straits Times, Wanbao, Zhaobao, Shin Min; TV appearances, and many more – all thanks in one way or another to my OMY collaboration.

adventurerace01

I make no excuses for my decision to move aside this year, but not only is my work-life very stretched right now along with family and community / grassroots commitments, I think it is only fair to open up the category of ‘What The Hell’ (WTH) to other just as deserving bloggers. Many of the previous nominees over the years are also my friends and I actually felt especially quite bad last year to know that some of these very excellent writers and great people did not get the same opportunities that I have had over recent years.

The WTH category is obviously very subjective. Not only on the judging side to determine who has the best style or fanciest looking blog or even the voting side (for which I’m enormously grateful to all of my supporters who have made the effort to vote for me), but also – and perhaps most importantly – the content.

The question is, and always has been, “What really constitutes WTH content?”

In my mind, it’s what can potentially make the reader’s jaw drop. Quite frankly, if a particular topic or subject makes me say to myself ‘What the Hell’, then I suspect it will offer up the same reaction to others (I’ve seen a lot throughout my decades on this earth, so it’s actually quite rare that something leaves me well and truly ‘gob-smacked’).

magic01

While I’m on my high horse talking about what I think ‘WTH’ is, perhaps I could also recommend to nominees this year, what I really think ‘WTH’ is not!!

Once again in my (small) mind – boasting about oneself (too much) is not going to get the readers’ attention… and any attention you do get, might be the wrong kind – it may make people switch off or worse still, unsubscribe to your work. So forget writing things that have the intention of ‘you’ve gotta love me’ or ‘I’m the best’, etc, or posting a 1000px x 1600px picture of your face as your blog header. It may work for one or two bloggers… but the odds are it’s not going to work for you. In fact, instead of people saying ‘What the Hell!!’ they may choose to say ‘What an Idiot!!’

raceinterview01

Also, remember well, that regardless of your nominated category, a blog should generally allow you to remain true to yourself. Think back to when and how you started blogging… was it to seek fame and fortune? (I doubt it)… or was it so that you could keep an online diary of your activities, thoughts and images? (more likely). In my case, it was to share our experiences with family and friends who live overseas and we do not get to see very often… and although I’ve diverted often and sometimes quite dramatically from this foundation, I always end up coming home in the end. What I’m saying, is that your content should not be contrived or forced… just let it flow… and no matter what – don’t ever sell yourself out!! (you guys know what I’m talking about, right?)

gokart01

So there you go… Aussie Pete blog is stepping aside this year to allow other worthy writers to be crowned the 2012 Best WTH Blogger in Singapore (not that I would’ve been a certain to win – just like a world heavy weight champion, all the more reason to ‘quit while I’m ahead’). Wishing you all the best and will see you at upcoming events. If you’re new to the OMY scene or Singapore blogosphere, don’t be shy – if we haven’t met before, be sure to say hello!! (I’ll be the ang moh with a beer in my hand and a smile on my face)

FUN BAGS OR AIR BAGS? Size 38KKK Boobs Save Life!

By , April 4, 2012 11:21 pm

The incident was brought about by a ‘dizzy spell’ – well there you go… who would’ve thought that 32-year old Brazilian model, Sheyla Hershey was ever dizzy? Hmmm?

sheylahershey03

The Brazilian born beauty is best known for her size 38KKK breasts. Having had at least 10 separate operations to get to where she is today, the oversize ‘air bags’ recently saved her life.

After suffering a dizzy spell and smashing her car, Ms Hershey walked away with only minor bruising. Upon being interviewed after the crash and referring to her major assets, she was quoted as saying, “They saved my life… They cushioned the impact of the blow. I would be dead without them. My breasts stopped my face and my head being hit. I am so thankful for them.” Yes, dear Sheyla… we are all very, very thankful for them!

sheylahershey02

She continued, “I was on my way to meet my husband and our two kids at a friend’s house, but I started to feel dizzy… I swerved to avoid a dog and ended up writing off my car. I hit a tree, spun round three times and then hit another tree on the other side of the road. But I am OK. It could have been much worse.”

So who would have known that such unlikely life preservers would have presented themselves? And even when they are not at the final ‘target’ size of 38MMM!!!

Warning – Graphic! A Woman Scorned… A Man Eaten!

By , November 25, 2011 2:06 am

When it comes to the ‘blog genre’ of WTH (What The Hell), one can never go past a good story of a woman scorned – especially one who resorts to cannibalism!

The eerie part of this, is that it’s certainly not the first time I’ve heard of this happening. In the latest incident in Pakistan (in the Shah Faisal colony of Karachi), the arrested woman didn’t actually get as far as eating her husband. In fact, according to police chief, Nadeem Baig, “There could be two factors behind her intention to cook the husband. One is to destroy the evidence and the other could be her immense hatred against him over his plan to marry another woman”.

cannibalwife01

32-year old Zainab Bibi was arrested on the 24th November, along with her 22-year old nephew, Zaheer. They were alleged to have killed Zainab’s husband, Ahmed Abbas‚ chopped his body into pieces and were about to cook his flesh in a bowl.

Zainab was apparently angry at her life partner for his plans to marry another woman without her permission. You see, according to Islamic family law in Pakistan‚ a man can in fact take another wife, but has to get permission from his first wife to do so.

The knife with which the pair allegedly killed the man has been recovered.

In a very bizarre twist, television networks showed actual footage of the human flesh in a bowl and ready for the stove.

Now before you start casting aspersions on a particular race, country or religion, or suggest something like, “this could only happen in Pakistan”, think again my friends!

This week is the Thanksgiving holiday in the US. It also happens to be the 20th anniversary of probably the number one most crazy cannibal-wife incident in history.

cannibalwife02

Just last month, the Californian woman who killed her new husband and cooked his body parts over Thanksgiving weekend in 1991 had applied for (and thankfully denied) her bid for parole.

hannibal01Dubbed as a female Hannibal Lecter, Egypt-born Omaima Nelson’s is serving a ’25-years to life’ sentence for her crime. At the time of the killing, Nelson was aged 23, and was convicted of murdering her 56-year-old husband William Nelson (they had only been married three weeks).

WARNING: GRAPHIC DETAIL OF THE GRUESOME EVENTS OF THANKSGIVING WEEKEND 1991 FOLLOW (read on only if you have a strong stomach and not prone to queeziness)

According to authorities, Nelson tied up her husband, killed him and then decapitated, dismembered and disembowelled the body over the course of a weekend. She had churned his parts through a garbage disposal (neighbours reported that they heard the machine running non-stop for hours after the murder).

Some of the victim’s body parts were found stuffed in garbage bags and mixed with leftover turkey. A bag containing his entrails was discovered on the front floor of his Corvette.

Blood pools were found on the floor of the home, along with blood-stains on sheets and walls. Mr Nelson’s hands had been fried in oil and his head boiled and stuffed in a freezer.

His lower body and torso were skinned. Strangely, the crazed wife had tried to get two different friends to help her remove her husband’s teeth and dispose of his remains (to cover her tracks and get rid of evidence)… this proved her downfall – one of the friends alerted police – well, go figure!!

bbqribs01Nelson’s defence at trial was that she was acting in ‘self defence’ – she said that her husband William had sexually assaulted and beat her for weeks. She claimed William had tied her hands, and bit, kicked, grabbed and choked her and threatened to kill her.

Prosecutors didn’t wear this at all, putting forward evidence suggesting that Nelson killed her husband to obtain his money and other property.

At the trial, she said that after the murder she “freaked out, fell into a trance-like state, and spent 12 hours hacking up the body to simplify disposal.”

Nelson claims to have little memory of her husband’s dismemberment, but did recall cutting off his penis and his ring finger, before cleaning the apartment and packaging the body parts.

A psychiatrist testified that Nelson had put on red shoes, a red hat and red lipstick before spending hours chopping up her husband’s body. She had also confessed to cooking her husband’s ribs ‘barbecue-style’ and tasting them.

ladyinred

“Jurors found Nelson not guilty of first-degree murder, citing insufficient evidence of premeditation, but convicted her of second-degree murder. They also found Nelson guilty of assaulting a former boyfriend with a gun.”

WHAT THE HELL!?

A Naked Irishman On Live TV? Eeewww!

By , November 8, 2011 2:17 am

In case you missed this, I wanted to make sure I could help you play catch-up!

Only in Europe could you get away with something so brazen on live television…

Although the stunt was obviously a ‘setup’, the male streaker that ran out on stage to join Heroes starlet, Hayden Panettiere, caused more than a few gasps in the audience.

mtvawards02

Hayden was just about to read out the nominations for Best Song at the awards ceremony held at Belfast’s Odyssey arena, when the unidentified totally naked man “with an Irish accent” ran around around in all of his glory!

She invited the streaker to join her for a pint (beer) after the show.

The winner of the award incidentally, was Lady Gaga. However she did not mention of the stunt – the winning song, was “Born This Way”.

Due to copyright reasons, I cannot embed the video – but as usual, I know of ways to get at the source…
