Allen can feel a XXXX comin' on
ROCKHAMPTON’S Allen Wyatt is in the running to be the face of a new XXXX beer commercial.
He’s one of 150 blokes shortlisted from 4500 contenders from across Queensland.
Allen was “stoked” to be in contention to feature in an upcoming XXXX ad.
He said four guys would be lucky enough to be part of the commercial.
The self-confessed bogan, who has been nicknamed “Big Gay Al” (a character off adult cartoon South Park), by his workmates, was set up for the gig by his beautiful wife and boss from Thomas and Coffey.
Yesterday, when The Morning Bulletin called in to his work for a surprise visit, his colleagues proudly cheered him on.
“I was stoked when I was shortlisted,” the blokey bloke said.
On Friday, Allen stepped out of his mechanical fitter role and flew to Townsville for a day of acting.
He was one of 150 men to be shortlisted.
“We role played one of the old Jacko XXXX ads,” the keen fisherman said.
“It was a bit of a laugh on set,” he said.
After the 45-minute acting gig, Allen said they spent the rest of the day chilling out and drinking at the Cowboys Club House.
Allen doesn’t find out if he has made the cut for another couple of weeks, but he said it would be “cool as” to star on the ad and get out of work for a while.
Even though he admitted to being a number one fan of VB, he said he would drink anything if it was cold.
