Myspace Party Animal Corey Worthington Is Back With A New Role

Myspace Party Animal Corey Worthington Is Back With A New Role

Corey Worthington, the 16-year-old behind the infamous 2008 Myspace party, has a new role as a brand ambassador.

Cast your minds back: The year was 2008, we were pre-pandemic and feeling great, Facebook was a fringe social media platform and we were still selecting our top friends on Myspace.

A young maverick by the name of Corey Worthington threw a party at his parent's house in Melbourne and then gave A Current Affair years of promos with an iconic shirtless interview.

Now, 14 years later (wow ok cool), he's back and he's a brand ambassador.

No, it isn't for fluro yellow shades, but somehow they managed to find a pair for the shoot.

It's for ShareCover, an Australian insurance provider for short-stay hosts.

This is a partnership made in branding heaven and I doff my cap to whatever genius put this together.

To match with his new corporate gig, Worthington has suited up for his appearance and ditched the bleached blonde do and shirtless party vibes.

According to ShareCover, Corey is an 'instantly recognisable symbol of in-home mayhem' and as such is 'perfectly positioned to share his extensive knowledge on the matter'.

Again, whoever put this together deserves the biggest Christmas bonus.

"Guests can get out of control, and I should know," Worthington says in the 'DisasterClass' campaign.

"You never know what your guests are getting up to, or what shenanigans are going down in your spa! The last thing you want is for your guests' holiday to become your headache."

Worthington's mother and stepfather - Joanne and Stephen Delaney - who very specifically told him not to throw a party while they were gone, were forced to rush home after the infamous bash; so if anyone knows about holiday disasters it's probably them.

I wonder if they gave pointers for the ShareCover series?

Just a note - Worthington has less than 10,000 followers on Instagram and if that isn't a sign that we've forgotten our '00s culture then I don't know what is.

Five hundred people reportedly turned out to then-16-year-old Worthington's party back in 2008, with police helicopters and the dog squad eventually shutting the whole thing down.

In an interview with A Current Affair, host Leila McKinnon, who you can literally see processing everything in her career that led her to this moment, was confronted with Worthington giving full brat behaviour.

"Why don't you take your glasses off so we can see you," McKinnon asks.

"Nah, nah, I'll leave these on. I like them," he replied, later adding: "I'll say sorry, but I'm not taking off my glasses."

Since then, Worthington has appeared on Big Brother Australia and Australian Ninja Warrior.

Also apparently rapper Machine Gun Kelly once crowned Worthington as his favourite Australian.

Has he never seen Kath and Kim? Did he forget Heath Ledger? The Veronicas? I would take any of the Hemsworths over Corey Worthington.
