Channel Seven is believed to have paid $25,000 for an amateur video of network star Andrew O’Keefe allegedly drunk on the streets of Melbourne.
According to News Limited, a Melbourne bouncer had been hawking the footage around to the major networks and that when Nine made inquiries yesterday A Current Affair producer Grant Williams was told: “Channel 7 has snapped it up for $25,000.”
“The vision is absolutely clear and irrefutable,” Nine spokesman David Hurley said last night. “O’Keefe’s splayed in the street, profoundly inebriated. He has to be helped to his feet by a blonde woman who disappears down the street. I don’t think you’ll be seeing it any time soon on Today Tonight.”
O’Keefe is said to have been filmed crawling down Chapel St, Prahran, looking disoriented and being helped to his feet by a mystery blonde companion.
The footage, outside Melbourne nightclub Revolver, is believed to be a couple of weeks old.
