Back in 2008, a snotty-nosed 16-year-old named Corey Worthington threw a little shindig at his parents’ place in Narre Warren, Victoria. It seems that the invite list got a little stretched, because 500 people turned up and ran rampant in the neighbourhood, with police dogs and helicopters called at a cost of $20,000 to the public. It wasn’t long before Corey’s story spread to national news, including this legendary A Current Affair interview where he appeared shirtless with a fur hood and those infamous yellow sunglasses:
With his forever quotable interview now written into Australian media immortality, there are reports of another shindig to commemorate 10 years since the landmark party. Since popping up on Facebook, over 5,000 people have clicked that they are attending, while 13,000 are interested – although organisers have stressed that “we’re still waiting on confirmation from Corey that this is actually happening, but it’ll be somewhere in Narre Warren again.”
Keeping with the theme, the soundtrack is set to be a fiery throwback to the late noughties. “Still sorting out entertainment for the night, at the moment we’ve locked in some big names from that era that have stood the test of time – Operator Please, The Potbelleez, Sam Sparro, Gabriella Cilmi and DJs will be spinning the Ministry of Sound 2008 annual,” they wrote.
We’d be lying if we said we weren’t keen. Fingers crossed that this actually eventuates. Oh, and one important note from organisers: “It’ll be BYO again and if you could each bring a plate of something as well that would be fantastic.” We’ll bring the party pies, miniature sausage rolls, Bacardi Breezers and Fruity Lexia – see you there.
