You can always count on the English to make the most out of Aussie misery.
Andrew Bayliss, the UK-born general manager and director of TaylorMade Golf in Australia and New Zealand officially won the internet this week with his hilarious office arrival the morning of England’s incredible victory in the third Ashes Test.
Just hours after Kiwi-born English hero Ben Stokes guided the old enemy to the most unlikely of victories in Leeds, Bayliss arrived at his company’s head office in Melbourne fully decked out in cricket gear, rubbing the victory in to his shellshocked Aussie colleagues. Check out the footage:
A cocky Bayliss can be heard asking his staff: “Enjoy last night, yeah? Good on you!”
He even pointed out that he was wearing a protective box, perhaps to cover him from being kicked by his receptionist.
Whether you’re English or Aussie, sometimes you just have to sit back and tip your cap to a performance like this … and we’re not talking about Stokes.
It’s little wonder the footage has gone viral. Even Piers Morgan ran with it on his high-rating morning show in England.
Let’s hope it’s Bayliss’ staff doing the rubbing in next Test!
