NRL legend Andrew Johns roasts deputy PM Barnaby Joyce in paid-for message by election-trolling YouTube star

  • YouTube star FriendlyJordies trolled Barnaby Joyce in a personalised video
  • Enlisted the ‘services’ of NRL legend Andrew Johns to deliver the message
  • In the clip, Johns refers to Joyce’s ’10 children’ and labels him a ‘superhero’
  • It is unclear if Johns, an NRL Immortal, knew Barnaby Joyce is the deputy PM 

NRL legend Andrew Johns has roasted politician Barnaby Joyce in a video message funded by controversial YouTube star FriendlyJordies.

Johns, 47, a rugby league Immortal, took part in a personalised video through Cameo, where celebrities are paid to pass on messages to other parties.

In the hilarious clip, the Channel 9 footy commentator poked fun at the Deputy Prime Minister, who he referred to as ‘Joycey’.

It is unknown if Johns knew who Joyce was. 

The video was later shared by Aussie YouTube comedian FriendlyJordies, who is seemingly determined to troll multiple members of the Coalition before the federal election on May 21.

FriendlyJordies, whose real name is Jordan Shanks-Markovina, has used the likes of American rapper Flavour Flav and Chris Hansen from the To Catch a Predator series to mock Prime Minister Scott Morrison in recent weeks through similar Cameo clips. 

He has since shifted his focus to Mr Joyce – and used footy great Johns as his Cameo spokesperson. 

In the clip, Johns bizarrely refers to Mr Joyce’s ‘ten children’.

The deputy PM actually has six kids – four daughters with ex-wife Natalie – and two boys with new partner Vikki Campion.

‘Hey Joycey, mate I don’t know what to say — and this is from your mate Jordan,’ Johns opens with in the video, which was later posted online by FriendlyJordies.

‘Baby number 10, are you serious? What is in the water up there in Armidale? My God.

‘Ten, you must be a superhero. Popeye’s old fella. Far out. I don’t know what your semen has been doing but it has been swimming upstream chasing salmon for years and years.

‘I can’t believe it. My young bloke can’t believe it. Joycey I don’t know what you’re eating. I don’t know what you’re drinking. But I gotta say everything an Australian man should be, is you.

‘Armidale’s finest. Surely you pull up at number 10. Maybe cut it off. But anyway mate, all the best. Go the Knights and maybe ease up a little bit mate. Ease up a little. Cya mate.’

Fans can get a personal message from the Newcastle Knights legend for just under $130 on the celebrity video service.

Other celebrities who use Cameo include Carson Kressley of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fame and Jesse Metcalfe from Desperate Housewives.
