'That's in Queensland'

Singer/songwriter Denis Carnahan is gaining a small piece of online fame with his satirical State of Origin video, That's in Queensland.

PT0M0S 620 349

Singer/songwriter Denis Carnahan says it himself: He doesn’t mind taking the piss.

Usually, he’s taking it out of his own poorly-performing team, the Canberra Raiders. But in his latest video which is gaining popularity online, he’s having a crack at the Queensland State of Origin team.

“The reason I take piss-takes is that I’m a passionate fan,” Denis says of his video, That's in Queensland. “So I get how fans can be so nuts about footy.”

He reckons a few of his Queensland mates have phoned to comment on the satire: "They've just called and shouted down the phone: 'Queenslander!'. What a great response."

He was inspired by a Bundy Rum television ad. “I could see it: ‘That’s in Queensland’. It was perfect.”

Denis wrote music for four Next Top Model series. He also writes music and satire for other television programs, and teaches production at NIDA.

He produces an up-and-coming band called Aston which is gaining some traction in the United States.

“It’s funny,” he says. “I’m stoked that my little video gets 30,000 views on YouTube. They (Aston) are disappointed if they get less than 500,000 on one of their videos.”

      • Nice. I noticed someone else on another site suggested a similar parody for the amount of players in the England Ashes team not originally from England.

            • I would personally like to know exactly how many of the Queensland team were actually born there; the evidence of Queensland's innate superiority seems a little thin on the ground when we see that Greg Inglis (to cite but one example) was born in Kempsey, NSW. To make matters even murkier, most of his first grade career has been spent playing for Melbourne.

              So how, exactly, do we define 'origin'?

              • We define origin as the state in which you first played graded RL
