Frank Walker, the scourge of Australian FM radio, has long promoted his National Tiles business on the airwaves with his now-nationally recognised “HELLOOOOOOO, FRANK WALKER NATIONAL TILES,” a sentence that sends motorists all across Australia scrambling to break the world record for fastest radio channel change.

We need to point out here that we’re quite aware that this particular gag has been explored before, but this is quite easily the best of the bunch.
