Oprah Winfrey is of course in Australia with 300 of her audience members, an excitable mash-up of gay men, frumpy women, and a handful of neutered husbands. The shows won’t air until January, but two of them will be taped tomorrow at the Sydney “Oprah” House. Ha ha, good one, Jay.
Russell Crowe, Bindi Irwin, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban and Olivia Newton-John are all confirmed to appear across the two shows.
Rock legends Bon Jovi will perform some of their greatest hits and hip-hop superstar Jay-Z will also stop by for a special surprise. [Herald Sun]
Et tu, Jigga?
Anyway, I could give a crap about who’s going to be on the show, but it seemed like a good way to introduce the Taiwanese animation video of Oprah going to Australia (see below). Yup, NMA News gives us the straight facts, which feature Oprah roasting a kangaroo on a spit and my Sydney Oprah House joke. Damn, I gotta race the Taiwanese to the easy puns now? My job is a lot harder than it looks.
Also, here’s Oprah walking the Sydney Bridge with her audience. Disappointing spoiler: nobody falls.
