Geelong Cats brothers Joel Scott Selwood Wacky Wednesdays

Dozens of photographers have swarmed the car as footy players emerged in costume to mark the end of season with Wacky Wednesday celebrations.

While Geelong players arrived dressed as Teletubbies, Rubik’s cubes, and even bakers, there were perhaps no arrivals as spectacular as brothers Joel and Scott Selwood.

When the Cats players posted a photo of the brothers to its Twitter account on Wednesday, the photo went berserk – and it’s no wonder.

The photo shows the boys hiding their faces behind scarves and wigs, dressed as convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby and her sister Mercedes. 

In one of Schapelle’s first posts on social media after she arrived back in Australia from Bali, she uploaded a photo of her and her sister in the backseat of a car on their way to Denpasar Airport.

In the photo, posted to Instagram on May 27 this year, the sisters were seen covering their faces, Schapelle with sunglasses and a scarf, and Mercedes with her hair.

Scott and Joel Selwood replicated the photo flawlessly.

Cats skipper Joel covered his face with a white scarf, while shading his eyes with big, dark sunglasses.

His brother Scott also committed to the costume, emulating Mercedes’ hair with a long, brown wig.

The boys were surrounded by a posse of 'police' dressed as fake officers which served to guard the Corby sisters during their return to Australia.

Joel took to Instagram about 11am on Wednesday to post a photo of the team, Schapelle with a handbag covering her face, and Mercedes armed with a boogie board.

Schapelle’s boogy board was made infamous in her case, because 4.2kg worth of marijuana was found inside the boogie board case.

In a video Seven News reporter Michael Scanlan posted to Twitter on Wednesday, the boys recreated scenes from the day Schapelle was flown back home to Queensland.

The Selwood brothers have been known for their dynamic entrances to the annual Wacky Wednesday celebration.

Joel rode in on the back of a motorbike dressed as Jake King one year and last year, his brother Scott commanded attention when he partnered with teammate Patrick Dangerfield to arrive as bachelor stars.

The boys’ costume was complete with roses, and even a red carpet rolled out for their entrance.
