Chaser Stunt Takes The Piss Out Of The Star Casino Covid Safety

Chaser Stunt Takes The Piss Out Of The Star Casino Covid Safety

The Chaser has released a video that takes the piss out of The Star Casino’s handling of Covid safety.

The stunt – performed by newcomers Aleksa Vulovic and Alex Apollonov – involves the Chaser comedians repeatedly attempting to get into The Star, while pretending to have Covid.

The duo tried their best to gain access to the Casino while looking like they should be turned away, from dressing in hospital gowns to giving themselves 48 degree fevers using a concealed heat-pack. Surprisingly they were still allowed entry to the casino.

“My head was still really hot after I got inside,” says Alex. “I must have drunk 3 or 4 of their complimentary water bottles. They’re obviously very used to catering for sick customers.”

Aleksa reckons that The Star staff seemed more interested in how much he was prepared to lose at the Casino than his health: “When I rocked up with my hospital gown and drip, the first thing they asked me was whether I had a star casino gold membership card.”

The Star was fined $5000 in July for crowding too many people into its venue in breach of public safety rules.
