Monday night triple j presenter Dylan Alcott appeared on the Q&A disability special.
But before that happened, Brooke Boney had the brilliant idea of getting Dylan to try and sneak a little somethin’ extra into the show.
“Now I took this Q&A serious,” says Dyl, “It was a serious thing that I’m really passionate about but I thought, you know what? I want to take the triple j listeners along for the ride with me and try slip in some references. And then we got a call from Andy in Sydney.”
Andy challenged Dylan to drop in as many Wu-Tang references into his Q&A appearance as he could.
If you’re not already aware, Wu-Tang holds a very special place in Dylan’s heart. At Meredith Music Festival a few years ago he was on-stage rapping with Ghostface Killahand it was a goddamn m o m e n t.
So, while rising to the Wu–Tang challenge at the same time as conveying a serious message to Q&A viewers, here’s how Dylan remembers last night:
“I was crappin’ myself. I thought, what have I done? Because now I have to do it. Anyway, we get to Q&A and you go in to this green room and everyone’s so nervous. You’re thinking about what you’re going to talk about, what they’re going to ask and you get really nervous. I’m thinking, can I get the Wu-Tang lyrics in? Then you get taken out, there’s 300 people in the crowd, maybe a million people watching on TV. I’m pretty shaky and all I was thinking about was trying to get these answers across because I was so passionate about it.”
So, was he successful or did he bomb atomically?
