An entire room full of fully grown adults have been spotted yelling and clapping at a television in the Lord Betoota Hotel this afternoon.
The patrons, who don’t appear to be talking to one another, are fixated on a TV program based around roughly 13 men lightly exercising in the middle of a large patch of grass.
Australia needs to score only 56 runs for victory when they return to the Gabba tomorrow with 10 wickets up their sleeve and a promised 1-0 lead in the 2017 Ashes series.
The English fought hard with Joe Root (51), Moeen Ali (40) and Jonny Bairstow (42), but were ultimately eventually outshone by Australia.
Root was dismissed by Josh Hazlewood (3-46) just after reaching fifty. Ali was controversially stumped off the bowling of Nathan Lyon following a long examination by the third umpire.
“Woooo!” Yells one man.
“Shot” says another, as he joins in the rest of the room clapping without showing any sign of emotion.
“He’s not bad that [Australian sportsmen]” says the bartender, who also doesn’t seem to be doing any work.
“Not bad at all”
