Notorious ratbags The Chats have returned for a cheeky feed in the clip for their newest single, ‘Dine N Dash‘ which sees the trio tear apart a fine Brisbane establishment before skipping out on the bill and trying to high-tail it outta there. As always, it’s pure chaos, and it looks like they maybe, quite possibly, somehow found the ‘Succulent Chinese Meal’ guy.

The fast-paced punk track screams along at top speed, with the boys lamenting about wanting a nice feed (a step up from the usual pub grub) but not having the dosh to afford it, instead opting for the classic five-finger discount and trying to dine and then dash – speed dealers firmly on.

The Sunny Coast scoundrels invoke democracy manifest and a very niche Aussie meme in the form of a quite-possible legit Succulent Chinese Meal guy, who once again demands to know what the charge is for the boys. Is it enjoying a meal? A succulent steakhouse meal?

But is it really him? Who’s to say. There’s been many an effort to track him down over the years, and word on the street is the real Succulent Chinese Meal bloke is quite possibly dead. But the man tapped by The Chats appears to be the same one found by Brown Cardigan last year:

Whether his name is Paul Charles Dozsa or ‘Jack K’, I’m entirely bewildered with everything about this. He even has a brand new website, which popped up overnight.

Keen eyes will also notice a very subtle nod to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in the film clip too. It might be the slightest flash of an easter egg, but if you keep a close eye on the restaurant’s table bookings, you’ll notice there’s a reservation in there for one “Abe Froman”. Incredible.

Check out the full video below, and get extremely ready for The Chats to come in red hot for a national tour later this year, kicking off with Splendour In The Grass.
