Meet The World’s Biggest ‘Mad Max’ Fan And Witness His Historic Shrine

Hopefully by now you will be aware that we write about pop-culture here at; you may have read a story or fifty-eight about Kanye, MasterChef, Flume, Tina Fey and/or Amy Poehler. But we’ve done some research and we now know that you, our 
  readers, are also interested in hearing about regular humans. Yes, we’re painted as the ‘celebrity obsessed’ generation, but research shows we most strongly identify with ~chill~, everyday Aussies doing excellent things. As such, we could not be more psyched to be working with our mates at CommBank, documenting the incredible stories of said legends as part of the ‘Australian of the Day’ series; which is no more or less than exactly what it sounds like – a daily celebration of your fellow ‘Strayans. 
The reviews are in and, overwhelmingly, people are absolutely frothing over ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ The Rotten Tomato 98% gem of a movie has left a new generation of fans ready to ride eternal, to the gates of Valhalla, shiny and chrome.

But for anyone who left the cinema a die-hard fan, all jacked up and ready to recommend Max’s world of fire and blood to anyone and everyone: you got nothing on our new mate.

Back in 1982 young Adrian Bennett of Bradford, West Yorkshire witnessed George Miller’s ‘Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior‘ and kicked off a 30 year fascination, that would result in a move to Broken Hill and two sons named after people involved in the series.

Nowadays he very happily runs ‘Australia’s first and only museum dedicated to Mad Max 2,’ which we were lucky enough to visit and hear about it all first-hand. Take a look above and we’re sure you’ll agree, Adrian has well and truly cemented his status as Mad Max’s biggest fan and our Australian of the Day.
