This is going to be one of the stories when we look back on the year and remember the stuff we just could have never even dreamt up.
Sunrise weather man Grant Denyer went above and beyond the call today when he joined in the nude photo shoot by photographer Spencer Tunick at the Sydney Opera House.
The intrepid, and newlywed, Denyer reportedly kept his back to the cameras while Sunrise did a live cross for the installation which was commissoned by Mardi Gras organisers. Still that was probably an eyeful for those still having their Weet Bix.
5200 people turned out for the event, topping the 4,500 who fronted for a Melbourne shoot in 2001 (by all accounts, much chillier!).
Tunick told AAP, “Gay men and women lay naked next to their straight neighbours and this delivered a very strong message to the world that Australians embrace a free and equal society,” he said.
Tunick said he was delighted to be able to assemble the installation at the base of “one of the most beautiful architectural structures in the world”.
If Denyer keeps this up he could be rivalling Louis Theroux and John Safran for throwing himself into a story.
