One of the world’s most wholesome guys, Michael Buble is touring Australia at the moment. He kicked off with Brisbane on Tuesday, but had a couple of days to explore the city before performing. So what exactly does Michael Buble get up to in Brisbane? He spends a ton of time in Hungry Jack’s, that’s what.
Speaking to the Brisbane Times, Michael said that “I have gotten to be here for the past two days, totally free, and I have spent all my time at the Queen Street Mall at the Hungry Jack’s.”
“This is not a lie, that is where I was for two days.”
I tried to find out what the longest time anyone has spent in a Hungry Jacks was, but couldn’t find a solid answer. Relying purely on the yardstick that I’ve never managed to spend more than 2 hours in a Hungry Jack’s anywhere, and spent maybe half an hour in the Queen Street store the one time I went, I’m calling this a record.
Listen to the GOAT team breakdown Buble’s weird fascination with Hungry Jacks and other celeb sightings on today’s ep of It’s Been A Big Day For… below:
So what exactly was esteemed singer Michael Buble doing in the Queen Street Hungry Jack’s for two days, I hear you ask?
“I thought, wouldn’t it be hilarious if all of a sudden in the line I just sung ‘it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas’,” he said.
“I just imagine people shitting themselves saying ‘Oh my God, it is really him singing Christmas music in Hungry Jack’s’.”
Sadly, the Brisbane leg of the tour is over for The Bubes, but he’s hitting Sydney on Friday night. If you don’t have anything planned, may I suggest going down to the Circular Quay Hungry Jack’s and singing Haven’t Met You Yet? You might get attacked by a seagull, but you also just might run into Michael Buble.
It’s worth the chance in my book.
