We’re assuming that last night, there was more than a few arguments over patio tables that included the passionately-delivered statement,
“You’re fucken joking mate, [Song Title] by [Artist Name] deserved to be wayyyyyyyyy higher!”
We are of course talking about the annual arguments that occur about triple j’s ‘Hottest 100′ countdown, and due to the fact that all music is subjective, everyone has a different opinion about what should’ve won and what should’ve placed elsewhere.
However, no one had as much dedication as Facebook user Ben Lawson, who decided to parody basically every triple j listener’s favourite sentence (see paragraph 1) by commenting it on every single one of triple j’s countdown posts.

On Amy Shark nabbing the #2 spot for ‘Adore’:
On Hilltop Hoods hitting the #5 spot for ‘1955‘:
On A.B. Original coming in at #16 for ‘January 26th’ (which is just shut the front goddamn door amazing, btw):

Man, that is some impressive dedication to Daryl Braithwaite.
Kudos, Ben Lawson. Nice.
