Furious Queensland fan rips a TV off the wall at a pub and slams it into a dumpster

Furious Queensland fan rips a TV off the wall at a pub and slams it into a dumpster after NSW smash the Maroons in State of Origin – but all is NOT as it seems

  • New South Wales defeated Queensland 44-12 in State of Origin on Sunday night
  • A video has emerged of a man appearing to rip a TV off a hotel wall after the loss
  • The man is wearing a Queensland scarf and he takes the TV outside to a bin
  • He then throws the television into the bin while spectators laugh hysterically 

A self-proclaimed ‘professional stuntman’ has released a hilarious – but staged – tantrum on social media following Blues’ thumping 44-12 State of Origin win over Queensland on Sunday. 

Video emerged on social media platforms this morning of a shirtless patron wearing a Queensland Maroons State of Origin scarf at Sydney’s East Hills Hotel in appearing to rip a television off the wall before throwing it in a dumpster. 

In the vision, he is followed by two people, one wearing a New South Wales jersey and the other filming the incident and using profanities to egg him on. A woman in the car park with a gas bottle looks on in shock.

The video has been shared on the social media accounts of a man going by the handle of lilgol0 on TikTok and Instagram – and this is not his first stunt.

New South Police told Daily Mail Australia it was a staged incident and no property at the East Hills Hotel was damaged during the production.

‘It appears that this was an organised stunt by the man depicted throwing the TV – he brought his own TV in for the video. No offences committed, no complaint made by the hotel,’ a NSW Police spokeswoman said.

Some people took the bait hook, line and sinker.

‘Aww look at what my taxes are keeping alive,’ posted one person on TikTok.

But most could see the funny side of the satirical and staged video.

‘In the bin just like the maroons lad,’ posted one follower on Instagram.

It is not the first State of Origin-related video the stuntman has posted this year, either.

In another video he is yelling ‘Queenslander’ at the top of his lungs in the middle of a Sydney street before he is tackled to the ground by a man in a New South Wales jersey, making him spill coffee everywhere.

He had asked an unsuspecting third party to film the incident and the man asked if he was OK after the tackle.

‘He’s been f***ing doing it all day ref,’ lilgol0 replies. 

His accounts feature a variety of amateur music videos and local stunts including throwing a kid’s bike off a bridge for losing a game of rock, paper, scissors.
