Australian senator David Pocock made international news recently for wearing a Tame Impala t-shirt to an interview in Canberra’s Parliament House.
Earlier this week (March 21), Pocok turned up to the Parliament House in Canberra for an impromptu interview while sporting a Tame Impala t-shirt. Footage of the interview – which can be seen below – later went viral across social media, with Pocock later taking to Twitter to explain why he wasn’t in formal attire.
“I’d come straight from an early morning game of tennis to celebrate 100 years of Tennis ACT and agreed to do a door stop (not a prearranged interview) in the hallway on the way out of the Press Gallery after a morning radio interview,” Pocock explained.
He ended his tweet by quipping: “Great to see the big issues being reported”.
What do you think? Play on?
