They’ve given us Pants Off Friday, Upset Andy, and Cool Boys and the Front Man – but how did Australia’s favourite bromance begin?
“It was really bizarre,” Andy explained to Craig Bruce, the host of the podcast.
“I hadn’t been to class very often. I wasn’t a great student. I wasn’t really engaged in what I was doing and there was a management class and I knew I was going to need these 10 attendance points to get a pass.”
When Andy finally turned up to a class, the lecturer just assumed he wasn’t there again. However, Andy raised his hand and interrupted him.
“I just left my hand up and I said, ‘I’d love a chance to address the classroom.’ So I went up and I made a speech to the whole class and him about, ‘if I was here, I would be more distracting and for the good of everyone here, I think you’re all going to do better, come this exam, because of my absence.’ And then I said, ‘with that in mind, I think I should probably get 10 [attendance points], but I’ll leave it with you’.”
