Steve Pratt on the Chaser

By Mess - 25 April 2007 26

Did anyone watch The Chasers war on Everything tonight? The Steve pratt cleaning up so called “graffiti” story was featured. In response the Chaser went and sprayed “Steve Pratt is a tool” on his office door.


[ED – Here’s the footage, note the Chaser boys cunningly never say which door is getting the works, too much time watching current affairs? or just getting ready for the big sellout?]

What’s Your opinion?

Does anyone know if he has apologised yet?

Looked like the ABC office in Ultimo to me.

So the scarpering at the end was a bit of an affectation?

Agree that the Prattmeister is unlikely to win Mastermind, unless his special subject is being an attention-seeking dope. But my problem is that he’s not really all that much worse than nearly everyone else in the Assembly.

Pratt is a tool! When will the Libs wake up to this idiot.

Actually it was a public school (primary and high school).

Sydney Grammar or whatever old money school it was?

“Pratt by name… Pratt by nature”

Perfect campaign slogan for the next local election.

As for whose office, they never said it was his office, nor really implied it. They just said they’d give him an example. But it was pretty sus how the camera angle showed only the doorway and then dipped to avoid showing the street as they ran off. Suspect it was Sydney too.

The Chaser is funny, but a lot of their pranks seemed staged. For example, the blonde woman in the intro to “Clive the…” siting to the left looks very similar to the blonde who was a passenger in the blind taxi driver test. Coincidently she was also in a prank last season too. And last season, a couple of the people used in clips filmed on the street where the chaser guys would do something to them looked very similar to former big brother housemates. Hmmm?

Still it was pretty funny though. I thought it was his office but thats ok.

Sammy 10:09 pm 25 Apr 07

It clearly wasn’t his office door.

It appeared to be filmed in the Sydney CBD, and they sprayed it on glass.

Nothing like letting the facts get in the way of a good story.

I thought about suggesting that The Chaser people appear in the National Gallery, ideally in front of, say, Blue Poles, wearing “Steve Pratt Graffiti Removal Team” and carrying buckets and brushes. But I forgot.

Lol, how funny…
