Man Hits Back At News Crew Asking Why He’s BBQing During Melbourne Lockdown

Melbourne residents may have been told that to head inside for a snap five-day lockdown in the wake of a bunch of new Covid cases in the state, but one pair of hungry locals apparently weren't going to let Dan Andrews rain on their parade... or rather, their barbecue.

Spotted casually cooking up a storm in a local park, the pair were accosted by a 7News reporter - who certainly wasn't expecting what happened next.

"Barbecues across the Yarra sat idle, but these mates weren't willing to explain," the journo said as the camera zoomed in on the carefree duo getting their sizzle on.

"Did you realise there's a lockdown?" the reporter asked.

Ever so nonchalantly, the man ignores the reporter before responding: "Mmm, can't wait for some of these snags. Think they're gonna be good as."

Then, as the microphone edges ever so close to his juicy snags, with a swift flick of the wrist the sausage-handler bats away the journo's microphone, which flies off onto the pathway behind him.

As the video spread to social media websites, many began debating who was the bigger d***head - the barbecuer breaking lockdown who yeeted the microphone away from his sausos? Or was it the reporter, who got their microphone far too close to said sausos?

One user on Reddit mused: "Both parties are idiots in this, and I thought the mic whack was a bit aggressive BUT tbf that mic was awfully close to the snags and who knows who has touched it or where it's been. So mic whack justified."

Another added: "I mean, without context, this is pretty funny. The casual but passive-aggressive and powerful, unsighted swipe at the mic, the satisfyingly swack sound as it flies off into the distance.

"Must infuriate the s*** out of everyone else doing the right thing though while this guy thinks he's special and can do whatever the f*** he wants and then wreck expensive equipment when he's called on his bulls***. Let's hope he is identified and fined appropriately."

A third said: "Nothing worse than a spiteful agro selfish c*** pretending to be laidback and 'just minding his own business' to cover his tracks.

"Couldn't just have a weekend in, mate? Nah, he was told to stay in so he's gotta go out. But don't worry he's actually just a chilled bloke minding his own. No love lost for the 7 either, of course."

Of course, the clip has already been given the meme treatment, with the video now up on TikTok account ausmemes101, which posts a bunch of true blue Aussie content.

For the rest of Victorians who are following lockdown restrictions, which were announced last Friday and is scheduled to run until 11:59 pm on Wednesday, it looks as if the state could see the current restrictions extend until February 26 - the day the current state of emergency directions come to an end.

Premier Daniel Andrews said a decision would be made based on public health advice about 'whether we can go back directly to the settings that were there on Thursday and Friday or whether we have to ease back into it'.

And when lockdown is lifted, you can cook up all the snags your little heart desires.
