Two Queensland Blokes Cover Their Holden Astra In 40,000 Five-Cent Coins

A Queensland comedy duo have gone viral after they glued 40,000 coins to their 'worthless' Holden Astra in the hopes it might kick up its resale value.

Michael Broekhuyse and Marty Sokolinski turned heads as they drove around Brisbane with a car covered completely in five-cent pieces.

The pair later posted a video to Instagram which showed the hilarious reactions of confused onlookers as they drove through the streets of Brisbane.

The clip also showed the boys heading to various car dealerships, only to be shut down by several unimpressed salespeople.

It turns out, however, their plan technically worked as they revealed that pimping their ride had increased the value of the car from $500 to $3,000.

"You know what they say, you've got to spend money to make money," Broekhuyse explained in the video showcasing the lengthy process.

One user joked in the comments: "Would be everyone's friend if he parked near a parking meter..."

Another said: "Seen your care at Taigum today! Tried to follow you but got stuck at a red light. Would have loved to get a photo with you guys and the care!"

It's the second time the twosome have made headlines of late for their OTT pranks.

In October last year, they invaded the pitch during the AFL grand final between Richmond Tigers and Geelong Cats at the Gabba, which resulted with the men being arrested and escorted off the field.

They later appeared in Brisbane Magistrate Court where they were fined $750 each.

"It was one of those things where we just wanted to make a funny video," Sokolinski told Seven News afterwards.

"It was ambitious of us to think we weren't going to impact the game but it's not what we set out to do.

"We won't be doing that again. We'll stick to our roots and change the world, one video at a time."

Marty and Michael describe themselves as a comedy duo who upload weekly videos, including 'comedy sketches, social experiments and horrific stunts.'

They have almost 1.85 million Facebook followers, another 1.2 million on Instagram and almost 800,00 YouTube subscribers.
