Well I start with a hangover because I have we do Christmas oh actually I may not have talked about this on here my carols by candlelight drink you can just look into the camera hang on
I think I've heard
carols by candlelight drinking game I mean you do have a lot of drinking
game that's just
do it. There was one that you posted on Facebook was like a flashback for me because that
would be the Kairos by can. Because I re posted every it's only thing I've ever done that's gone viral.
Got all your bachelor stuff. I feel like your bachelor. Yeah,
junkie and punky often pick up my love Island 2017 pucky live the same business I believe so
yeah, so Okay, so for context my godmothers the entertainment producer, so I started it as like a way to get people that hate Carol's to watch it. Um,
I was on a TV show, right?
Yes. The one on Channel Nine. I was a high five backup dancer. Wow. Their first Carol the
Yeah, that's it. No, but it's very good because Harrison Craig performs their music
that's all smoked out tonight. It's the real one.
One drink when they zoom in on a baby
that you have to drink if you can say the MC j and those like sweeping shots of Melvin, you have to drink if that all you have to drink when I say it all you guys know as a high five backup dancers in the same room as maybe as a general rule, it's like seven times Yeah, high five don't even do it anymore but I'm just like, you know what's missing from this high five?
Charlie Robinson she was my favourite
was Charlie. Yeah.
Charlie, Charlie thing maybe a natural ginger.
She was my favourite.
My best friend's favourite was Kelly and we will I will be that
then you have to drink all if they asked for audience participation. So that includes like, let me see those candles or
drink if anyone on stage has been on a reality show, which is all of that law. Yeah, you have to finish your drink if the baby is asleep. If you finish your drink if they say word for word, and it will happen twice word for word. You all look so beautiful from up here. And then also if you're like feeling extra spicy, you combine it with that guy and we put santa hat on the corner of the TV and then if it matches up and it looks like the person's wearing the Santa hat if to finish your drink
you can do that Santa hat one with any TV show. Are you
allowed to drink if you feel a bit thirsty?
Yeah, most people don't make it all the way through.
Has anyone ever been so you've done the backup dancing? Have you ever actually gone and sat as a audience member?
Like when I was on top?
I'm on stage. I'm
Ben Fordham. I'm not coming to your event unless I'm the
what do you do? What do you normally do for it's a bit of a road, a rotation system in our family, so it's either in Ballarat by my uncle live in Ocean Grove or where I grew up or in Brighton. neck of the woods.
sovereign Hill open on Christmas day you reckon?
Not sure. Not sure.
There's not much open on Christmas Day McDonald's
is like a Mac is Cape Cod Mallory's
to try and get me to work and I said you can get roasted. Yeah. Did we know this now
I knew worked at math and break.
Deep one for wonder what happened? That was Santa.
19 and I was probably be at that 70 kilos or something like that. And the word came through. We need a Santa. And I went to the shops and bought everything red. And in those days, this was probably 1985. And the options were full of stuff. You'd go crazy sheepskin stuff from the 70s in the 80s So the sheepskin stuff, it was lined with really good fluff. So it's not
like it was a different time.
There's a lot of training that goes on with Santas stuff, but I recognised that one at Melbourne Santo. There's a guy on Instagram who I went to an event the other day and he was there. He said, tag me on Instagram. But what I was wondering is whether Hey, I reckon he's someone who hasn't had the training, because he's just broke. He got he had one person. He's like, Oh, hi. There was another performer there. He's like, oh, look who we've got here. This is summer. She just saved Christmas.
was another role in the drinking game that I forgot and that you have to drink if Santa comes on stage, and he's drunk. Usually, yes.
And 97 What do you normally do? Is this a standard Christmas day for you? Oh,
yeah, we'll sit on the cash and open up a presence. record an episode.
And then we'll just have a nice lunch dad might cook a chicken on the barbecue was already
paid we're talking about love languages the other day
there are a few flights and
I'm not sure if you're aware
I said it's a lot of grumbling and complaining until we get a coffee and then once we get a coffee we sort of kicking the
love languages and I feel like is anyone does anyone have the gift giving or receiving is a love language I
know my friends do that's the only reason I've kept me so glad
because you guys are gonna be very underwhelmed. So I'm now the reason I bring it up is because I had a slight anxiety attack this morning actually put a bit of a fun one Look we got 97 to organise everything but Christmas time you know like when do you When do you bring gifts for people we have no
time I go anyway
I had the blog the other day about Bray having the Hey Tiger chocolate quickly what would you guys have done I would have been what braided
feet of a beach though would you said Get your grubby hands off
yes pretty much when
I told my cousin off the other day because I gave them all I had like three boxes of beauty products and I just put them on the table and said Go for it. And then there's a separate stash and going to the bungalow where that stashes and she's filling up another bag.
Already got two bags. you donate this
both your personalities.
Yeah, it's speaks truck
always nice and I'm no
Where is it coming from today?
But I've done what could be described as a gronk shop. So the definition of a gronk shop is shopping only at one location. And so that's what we've done.
Can we give it to Santa who can that I
gotta say, the king of sex.
The most underwhelming sec
they're not rap. So that's another gronk move potentially. And so if you pull something out like so some of them have got specific meaning and others are Just I panicked a time filler time. So you pull it out and then I'll say who it's for and I'll describe what it is. Okay, here we go. Sorry, I've got to the price on it. What is that? 495 so this is for human Periscope. This is gronk Wow, lucky. So what was one of your things that you were trying to think to get better better at in life? You never gonna get some phone calls? Yeah, yeah. And so what I've been leaning into you and I spoken on the phone, but what I feel like is potentially you could take it to the next level. So what we bought big media company have bought you is a telephone message book. Yes. And there's no carbon required. I don't know what that means the Old Spice copies, but it looks like they haven't required because it's so I feel like it you would have that you still Run your accounts
run my account
would have been looking
at all the invoice book you drop
it off yeah okay, so
this is this is Derek's zero
analogue one hand my hipster in Brunswick
so what you could do paid is you could say so your voicemail you need to fix that up yeah you
recorded at about eight years ago
definitely it's the one where it's getting very meta because you know at least I don't say if you've paid I think you've raised a spaceship that's fine
yeah back when home phones were thing
so anyway you've got you can put your to and from you put the details their telephone their mobile their fax their email, and then you can take whether you going to ring them back. What's the difference? Oh, sorry, that will ring back. You You need to please ring or they called in so you can even have it at the comments if someone calls in. You could use that so they
called someone and they weren't ready
to like message them to tee up, make sure they ready
2020 Peter, you lock it up bringing up to scratch. When when you've been on the show this you've told us that you don't like speaking on the phone. Yeah, I
found out there's quite a few people that have that same phobia.
I mean, weakness attracts weakness.
Name one person. I mean, I can't.
Actually it was a workshop I ran I did the question. This is relevant to the episode this week, I asked the question of like, what's a quick you have as like an icebreaker, and someone said I'm afraid of telephone calls and I was like,
They would have been probably similar age. So it it is it on
lean into more phone calling so yeah I've since discovered that it reduces a lot of friction when you try to organise
a great invention that happened hundred years ago.
There was a kind of cover it
has to be Yeah, anyway, but like Josh, you take it to the next extreme I got a phone call from Josh the other day after I reacted to his Instagram story and he said he had to I'm doing this new thing where I call everyone that reacts to it. That's good.
It's good. It just gives people like
So you know that people are gonna if they've just respond if ever reacted to something, you know, they're on there.
So this was a thing I thought about not answering and then I was like, I just
I called my
yesterday and he didn't answer but instantly texted back. And, like started the dialogue just through text is that him just being a civil live version have done it before
yeah just like console right now what you want what do you what do
you think the person's thinking because I made it they go Why don't fucking you answer you could have liked just spoken to me about this and we would have sealed off the whole conversation could be the toilet
Derek scared it just lives under the biggest
sometimes they go completely solid
and I'm like, are you there?
And then like while on the phone yeah like I'm yeah I'm like, are you still there? And it just takes like two seconds and then you hear him? It's like echo is like Yeah.
muting between plot
Next present here we go. So this is an interesting one because this was more for the year when you go shopping and you end up buying shit that you just want But you don't know who it's for. This is one of these so this is this we've talked about what was that Dr. Dre Dr. dreadful, which was a sciency thing and you make
when you think about so
this is a call because it was causing
the blue but this is really for all of us to use. Whoo I think in the new year we could open it but it's so it's for all of us so everyone give it a hold. It's the total science Shane looks. What do you say? What do you rate the The second
is stuffed with the seven disgusting and revolting science projects. Do you think disgusting and revolting a two different
make your own digestive system, glowing snot, fat powered explosion and more
How much it was how much did you pay to build
the company was different actually, interestingly, they didn't have prices on heaps of stuff. And they were the post office like I got in there. Like first thing in the morning 9am there's already hate to people and I'd read the reviews of the post office before I went in because I
had read the reviews
because I just walked around but when I when I went into the the post office, they're all these people that had cards you know, like a card to come and collect your thing. And they got it on Friday. And they were basically all the people from are supposed to like our we've got got 200 packages, we still need to sort out the back. So we can't give them to yet and people are only posted on my slide. Yeah, absolutely not. Still in character Santa, if you have if you're not watching the video, Derek is dressed up in a Santa Claus
is ready for holidays because he's got his pineapple shirt on.
But I was the only person that was buying stuff. And when I finally got to the front of the line, it's like that never processed anything outside of Alicia before. And they were asking me for the prices for everything. And then there was someone next to me who bought something. And the ladies like, Hey, is Simon here like, like, you know what this prices and the guy looked at is like are that's 1995 so that's what I've done here. So that's a great present for all of us.
Now, that's my son's both.
This is this is a message, stick it
on a selfie stick telescope. You can extend it x
rancher of sorts.
a different thing. I think about backscratcher
Derek that is for you. Because I know that obviously you spend a lot of time on the slide. Can you go to?
How is it my hands busy? All right,
Okay, here we go.
Okay, so here is the
inside this is the date.
You can you can scratch your back, maybe like
someone out there that actually uses bad stuff.
I mean, it's a bit of a quote to use a shoe horn as well. Oh, absolutely. Really,
for what? She's the Porsche that you are the more likely to use one because leather doesn't
exist. Thank you. I just
my Connie's come on and off.
So there we go. So there's a
Skirda sorry, converses I was playing
in a backscratcher
Yeah. So this is how do you actually give it to Jim? And it says, hold on, I need to drink about it.
You just bring the bottle. The heavy spell flask. fl Yeah. So the thing is the guy was trying to find it in the system. And he was like, yeah, so he was spelling it wrong by
what would the choice and then what would you put in there?
with the one in the bottle. yeah
all right and now I don't discriminate. Okay, here we go

Messiah probably have risen chicken
Charlie grapes were hand picked before chilli and a whole bunch and a whole bunch pressing
Is there any way of knowing from a libel whether something's a good bottle practice
wine region region yeah
but then like what grapes were good in what
region in you yeah I need to know in 2014 it was a great year in Margaret yeah In which case if you find a Margaret one from I mean I'm speaking out of school
never out of school
for wine wholesale for many many years. She used to watch them rights let the description on the label about what life is written that would just make things up.
Yeah They might be these price
no no ladies the year in the region but the beat where it's like playing
conditions which was ideal for growing the grapes and all that.

It's my favourite noise. Do you want to do it? No, I don't. I don't do it. It's
really I could
see you getting around the theatre. Oh,
I love the attention
kept popping into
Here we go. So it says
here we go. So it's Oh, it's being taken pressed. It says coming. It's a cool all the tension is absolutely good. That smells good.
I really love this. So it's all about putting it on the glass as soon as possible right to avoid the head. This
Has anyone done that? shave it off with the sword of the shampoo?
I much prefer doing that. Yeah,
yeah. Are you actually at the
top of the bottle? Yeah,
it's good fun.
They let you do it at the rice is in the market. They have like a purpose built plastic room.
What did you get?
What was the best?
shape? Man so yeah, probably really, before that. I wild Christmas morning was was always exciting and it was about it was. I remember getting a big gym sports camp male dollies camping truck, like a plastic drain. But the Big Jim is coming back and you could press a button on his back and he do a karate chop. So I got a sports Kevin I remember that being $22 and it wasn't meant to be at nada
glasses anyway, so Santa doesn't satisfy Yeah.
When do you have to take clothes to dry cleaners? I've never own clothes. Well, when is it a dry cleaner job versus just a washing machine?
Don't put your jacket through the washing machine or
you could potentially call it hand wash. I'll do what I love doing the washing.
I really enjoy called hand washing. That's a good way
to do you have a good laundry sink.
It gets like a trough. Okay, it's been there since the house was built, which is when my dad was 11. And he's now 72.
That is sweet.
So dry cleaning. Yeah, I don't do I refuse to iron so if you've got a suit or a nice shirt like you're wearing now, I would always dry clean.
A lot of my stuff's driving surely because I'm fancy. Because that's
what I'm paying for.
So whenever I go away, I'll get the, the wash, fold and dry or whatever was dry and fall when you're away. Very good. It's great in the US. It's extremely North Carolina. The tip With more than the actual like,
it's great when you're in Southeast Asia, it's like $1 Akilah or something of washing.
three kilos of washing.
lot of a lot of hackers club joining
the baggesen Did you have a guest on your show to
offline to mixing it's cheaper to fly to Mexico to do three bags, five bags of coke, Australia.
Let's Let's soften that up and got some
people that go to Vietnam to get suits made because that's
told me it was
just a great tradition for handling having something was meant to be dry clean, is make all your decisions, no matter how wasted you are. No problem in your case so well maybe after that, no matter why said you are you really have to make make that assessment when you come home and hang that baby back up and if you really think through it Yeah, because you don't want to forget that suit out. Yeah for a funeral
everything's covered in champagne and
if you happen to get one that's you come home and you go that was a bit of a dud wedding and nothing dramatic happened you beauty
for the base. Well
that's what I was hoping for. I gave Ray my jacket over the weekend because it was cold out so yeah,
it was cold outside.
And the thing is, I was waiting there was a my mate whose wife was also also cold it but I did the move first. Then she was like, he's like oh, do you want my championship? Yeah he wasn't that yeah so I want that one but the grey said so you know when I was wearing it someone spilled some alcohol on me so now I am slightly concerned potentially somewhere there is booze on this
is a nice looking jacket
yeah running gun
watch it to the kill oh yeah they got a
lot of silk cuz I'm fancy so that's
good for that. I guess if you
don't hand wash the soap because silks existed for longer than dry cleaning has
but what about like
a greasy foods I guess if you get
chips when you wearing a suit?
The gym does gym definitely.
Does anyone still use light by
what's the new thing
It's such a bad
thing I just don't
like incentivizing consumers and when people can't afford
because you can offer to pay like Botox now there's a whole thing with that because now these young girls like Oh, I can't afford it now but it's fine
2020 anything Gemma? I haven't spoken that you want to sort of
go back to dancing. That's my news.
No, I just I just want to go back to back classes high five.
Not full time.
I can imagine you're getting into bar. I love bar.
But I didn't like ballet. I'd be pulling that's why
I said yeah.
Exercise it cold. Because it's a bar.
business that they made. They franchise the shit out of These states bar it's all about
you can do it here like a soulcycle equivalent but
what about coaches Polish dancing is apparently taking off really
easy street upstairs just as pole dancing.
That's right next to the
place where you're gonna go to I'm gonna go back to the space I use all the time. Yeah
my other news resolution is to stop wearing the same lipstick every day because I've got like thousands of them just sitting there mix it up.
Yeah, what's what colour you rocking?
At the moment I've got I've got a lot of Charlotte Tilbury ones because they lack my thighs.
But I'm just thinking about a lip glosses you don't want it to be too glossy and you want to be also don't want it to change the colour of Whatever you put on top, you know, I was watching an Insta story that your wizard lip gloss that you're describing. That was bomb.
Start with a bomb.
Yeah, so the idea of a bomb is you don't you want to
Yeah, you don't want it to be too glossy. You don't want the colour to sort of intrude on your top layer.
I do a scrub and then I do a bomb and then I put lipstick on and then gloss.
Okay, there's a lot of lipstick. I'm rattling
blow ups at family time.
Pretty good actually. Sort of the bit of a happy family today. There's a lot of noise on the ship.
It's like to talk and really talk at each other and not don't listen
to a lot of drinking water. Red wine. Yeah, quite a bit of swelling of the red was really sights too heavy. We usually go for a swim in the afternoon.
Yeah, it's actually so there's usually a couple of people that haven't drank
It's pretty shallow because it's dangerous because we've been drinking but it's actually quite refreshing in the afternoon after you've had three servings of pudding and five red wines.
Maybe next year.
Saves is the drinking at your diary. Now you you know
mom and dad will have a drink. It won't be maybe sam i have a soda. Oh yeah.
What about you this? I mean, this is your second glass of champagne, everybody.
David Scott, I think he's gonna
tell us the flavour profile plays
What are you actually noticing it's
a nice initial taste.
There's a buck coming.
Just what's the aftertaste?
what's what's Derek saying? He said there's a buck coming.

And I think he is I think he already was excited when he said, life hacker club because your description of it is exactly the same. And could you just talk me through it things we don't usually do. You just go up. You just consistently go and do something that you don't normally do.

Alright guys, before we go, we should do a bit of what we're grateful for for 29
week we're doing it for Christmas.
I feel like giving away taking all the American holidays it's only a matter of time before we end up doing some Thanksgiving Christmas in July we do Should we start doing it as part of the show maybe during
Christmas in July then a Christmas because it was like impromptu is like Hey guys, should we do like a get together? It was in July. It was the best
can we do like a proper house party? He said
like humping what
it people Christmas in July easy to dance for
35 over on Saturday and our house is not this big.
It's rare we can do is record today set up Christmas lights, which will make that up
front. Yeah, yeah. Well, I had to put the rest of them on there because it looked there was only Yeah.
Okay, maybe I think there's definitely something where we get sort of the whole Oh, yeah, definitely. Actually before we do the gratitude thing. Fun fact, I was watching last night how much different movies were made. Home Alone. Yeah. Guess what the budget for timeline was?
Now I would have been 60
so back back in the day when a half a mil now so when it was when it was made most films were sort of around that 60 mil Mark but they actually were told by Warner Brothers if you can do it for 10 mil you can do it anyway they put together the budget and it came in at 14 and a half mil and so that hide everyone that's that actually built the whole set is built in a school gymnasium though doing it really. And just the exterior shot was like a an actual house. Anyway, they went to Warner and they said hey, this is this is 14 and a half mil and Warner said Hey guys, if you don't get down to 13 and a half mil We're shutting down the whole production this there's all the people are there and the director of photography everyone anyway, they're like sorry, now we can't do it. And then one is like, shut it all down to that to shut it down that you did at the same time. I then spoke to Paramount Wow. And Paramount said How much were you guys asking for? And I said 14 half million I said yes. So the next day I love everyone all the crew were to come back in their head Paramount t shirts on their seats hierro Warner Brothers to Paramount and it ended up being like, hugely successful. Made it for 14 and a half years 20 years story.
maybe start off on Channel seven
one season and they flipped just channel team Yep, channel 10 pertain
to the digital channel.
Let's numbers 20 years the phone numbers were less TV it was just our Robin 10 by the end of the night at the beginning when I was a kid
Was that locked as a diet
What is it was it was a dialogue when they had a non traumatic
Remember the 90s
it was the 90s Yeah, I didn't remember. It was
so we were
at Erica it was five to download sugar that we had a five star
that's the most you've ever paid for yellow pages that Derek we have about nine grand No.
This is what I hate about the
be grateful and watching them die was one of the best pleasures of my life.
By the balls you had if you were in business, even a very small business, you had to pay there was only one thing you had Do you had to get no choice? You had to take an ad in the yellow pie, but otherwise you didn't exist.
So how do you feel about Facebook now?
just was just diabolical. That's why I love all
of it. I love everything. We gives you a choice the
first day that you got rid of your ads. Was it a big impact for you? Would we freaking out we like guys. I'm not spending any more. No, it was the year after their build a website myself and, and the year after that when they the rip sort of rang me up to say, let's talk about next year. That's the thrill. Yeah. sticky.
Right up here, jack.
What else would you say they've been screwing you for the 10s of thousands of dollars. I can say you're revelling in that conversation.
Nicole and never spoke to me.
She when I wrote you that $9,000 check, and I said, one day, I'm going to revel in your company.
The mafia was extortion.
I want the Harvey Norman thing I want to give you a platform. You did six videos.
Slam This is more
what's the if you give us the 32nd version I was having on
this morning, I got an email that was and I looked at there was a response to me raising a help ticket on buying a product on their online store that was faulty. And it arrived today saying, oh, he's what to do. Take it to a store
that data right and how was that? How many days that was four weeks, four
1100 dollar product and you've been to the store?
Twice? No way. This week, I went back to the store. And I said give me the fucking camera back. And the guy looked for it for half an hour. And it was in a box out the back tucked away. Right and I hadn't done anything about it. And I said, Give me a back up because I've got to do a important video I made this up, sorry. I might just say, give me the fucking thing back here, but a very important video to do, even though it weren't pan or tilt. With that going out of focus, I need to use it as a static shot.
So the idea of what
I said, Please bring it back. Make sure you bring it back again.
Is that because they had done a refund and you reckon I
haven't had a refund? They haven't No, nothing's been done. Nothing's been done at all. But then what are you thinking? What do you want? What does
success look like?
I want this huge company to just straighten up and fucking sort this stuff out. What does that look like? It looks like someone ringing me saying we've noticed that you're having a huge issue with our company. How can we make it right
and what does that look like? Is this right look like? Because we'll send this to them this snippet? What is
your money back? Well, yeah, I want my money back and
four weeks to reply to a ticket is ridiculous. Could you
spend 100 grand and have their online people were rude and I said, take it to a store. I'd already been to a store and they'd said, not it's online. It's nothing to do with us. We were a franchise clear off, right? So I cleared off and then they said, take it to a store. And I said, but the online thing asked me to sign in, which is ridiculous. Yeah. You sent me an email saying sign in. He didn't have an
account and he clicked forget password. What happened?
No, there was no signing. It was just impossible. So that was impossible. It went on and on. It's not good content for Christmas Day. The joys of Christmas I
mentioned about having a moment.
