The Killers’ Mr Brightside being read by an Australian sports commentator is oddly enthralling
Gerard Whateley has taken Australia’s Triple J radio station by storm.
Have you ever wondered what The Killers’ Mr Brightside would sound like if it was read aloud like sports commentary?
Probably not, but a commentator for the Australian Football League (AFL) has done it anyway – and it is captivating.

What’s next for this budding musical star? Well, most probably he’ll be back to the day job.
Whateley’s performance was made in the build-up to Saturday’s AFL Grand Final – the biggest game in the Australian sport.
