The campaign for Australian TV’s most highly coveted award is getting pretty cut-throat this year!
With big names up for the Gold Logie at the 2019 TV Week Logie Awards, it appears that some of the contenders are doing anything possible to increase their chances of winning – including turning on the competition!
Tom Gleeson, who has been nominated for his TV Show Hard Chat, is one of these fierce competitors who has launched a smear campaign against some of the other nominees in videos posted to his Facebook page.
One of which was about Sunrise Weather presenter, and of course fellow Gold Logie nominee, Sam Mac!
In the caption of the video Gleeson wrote, “To win the Gold Logie you have to fight dirty. Going negative works. Here’s my Sam Mac attack ad.”
The video itself is quite cheeky, and tells voters why they shouldn’t vote for the Channel Seven star and why they should instead cast their vote for Tom.
Tom Gleeson certainly can dish it out – but can he handle copping some of the “hard chat” himself?
Sam Mac joined Kyle and Jackie O on the air this morning to chat about his own Logies campaign, when he announced that he actually had a rebuttal to Gleeson’s video.
In true Sam Mac fashion, the weatherman proceeded to sing/rap a SAVAGAE dis song about Gleeson to the tune of ‘Old Town Road’ by Lil Nas X.
And can we just say, it was truly EPIC!
You can listen to the Sam’s performance in the video above!
The Logie Awards is going down this Sunday Night and we have a feeling that it’s going to be an INTENSE ceremony as the winner for Gold is finally announced.
