Lewis McKirdy – the youth broadcaster’s laconic Lunch show host – has assembled a set of Aussie artists and international stars for a music celeb-savvy video in order to celebrate voting for the newest installment of the Triple J Hottest 100. Starting with New Zealand sensation Lorde plugging her globe-dominating ‘Royals’, the clip marks a ream of cringe worthy puns from several recognizable acts like Kings Of Leon, Empire Of The Sun, Franz Ferdinand, and City & Colour.
The apparent pick for this year is Lorde’s Royals, however local triple j regulars The Preatures, Matt Corby and Vance Joy are also in with a sniff and mainstream cross-overs Lana Del Rey, Robin Thicke and Daft Punk are possible top-fivers too.
As an encouragement to cast your vote, Triple J are offering voters the chance to win a ‘Golden Ticket’ to every triple j-presented festival and gig in 2014, like Splendour In The Grass, Laneway Festival, Falls Festival, Groovin The Moo, The National, Phoenix and Arctic Monkeys.
