Two of Australia’s most esteemed arbiters of morning radio, triple j‘s Tom Ballard and Alex Dyson, otherwise known as the irreverent Tom and Alex spent this morning taking on a series of dares and challenges to raise money for the Syrian refugee crisis.
Among the hijinks, the duo got ABC Managing Director Mark Scott to eat a red chilli live on air, UK comedian Mark Watson to read the weather in character as Sesame St‘s The Count, and thanks to a $1,000 donation, Bendigo will now be included in the weather report.
While this was all going on Mr. Ballard was earning big bucks for the cause, completing a dare to wear drag for the entire show. He also pledged 20c for every ‘Like’ the photo evidence received on Facebook, resulting in an incredible $5,600 out-of-pocket donation.
For the epic denouement to the affair, the duo stripped down to their birthday suits to give a spirited and naked performance of the empowering Helen Reddy classic, I Am Woman. Combined, their efforts raised over $30,000 for the Syrian refugee crisis.
