Following on from his iconic new appearance in Nike’s first Australian-targeted ad campaign in ten years, Wests Tiger star James Tedesco has appeared on camera again dodging security staff in a public place.
The original ad, which shows the NSW representative purposefully touch a priceless work of art, giving him no way but to dodge his way out of the museum, was recreated this afternoon at the Rooty Hills RSL.
However, this time it wasn’t a pack of dumpy Art Gallery staff members he was trying to avoid, but a wall of gaming room bouncers. A much tougher defensive outfit, according to anyone who’s ever been thrown of a Returned Serviceman’s Club.
Witnesses say that the 24-year-old Western Sydney rugby league prodigy managed to evade several of the Tongan security guards before receiving both a grass0cut and clotheslined at the same time, by two different RSL employees, who were sprinting in from opposite angles.
“He did a 360, horizontally, I’m pretty sure” said one club member, who watched the whole thing from the safety of the electronic roulette machine.
“I’m surprised he’s alive, to be honest. I hope Nike was paying him top dollar.
“Imagine fifteen Fuifui Moimois jammed between poker machines… That’s what he just ran into”
While it is not yet confirmed if Tedesco had performed this stunt in conjunction with the high-paying sportswear sponsor, or for his own recreational reasons – it has left both representatives from Nike and the NRL worried that he may be unable to play in Game III of the 2017 State Of Origin series.
It is believed that Tedesco was unaware that RSL bouncers were allowed to engage in head high tackles, before he decided to pour an entire jug of Tooheys Old into the operating system of a Queen Of The Nile poker machine.
