Most people would be on their best behaviour when meeting one of Hollywood’s biggest names. But not Panthers great Mark Geyer.

Matty Johns and his family were going through their favourite Mark Wahlberg movies on his podcast and it reminded him of when Geyer farted on the A-list actor when Triple M’s Grill Team interviewed him.

“I’ll tell you something about Mark Wahlberg, it just sprung to my memory. Mark Wahlberg came into Triple M one day, very serious guy,” Johns said.

“It’s a very tight studio the prerecord studio and as we were about to conduct the interview he was standing I reckon about 10 inches away from Mark Geyer.

“As we’re aware MG has a horrendous flatulence problem so as we’re counting down, five four … I’m watching MG and go ‘oh no’.

“He actually cocks his a** which almost places it on Mark Wahlberg’s leg and let’s out this enormous fart.

“Mark Wahlberg almost kinked his neck, he was stunned. We had to get out of the studio because the smell was so bad.”

Johns went on to reminisce about his time with the Grill Team and recalled another startling situation with a well-known person … but not someone with the same accolades as Wahlberg.

“We had a call one day … a guy rang up and he was a warden at Golbourn Supermax prison.

“He said they listen to the Grill Team, it is the radio show of choice for the inmates — some of Australia’s most notorious inmates.

“However, serial killer Ivan Milat refuses to listen to the breakfast show Triple M,” Johns read from a Daily Mail article to jog his memory of the call.

“A prison officer called from the supermax prison this week and the guard says the Grill Team show is tops with super max inmates but Ivan Milat refuses to listen because he finds the humour distasteful”.

The Grill Team had a character named Poppy Geyer, MG’s mythical grandfather who shared a cell with Milat, which Johns said could be the reason why Milat wasn’t a fan.

Milat, Australia’s worst serial killer died in October but Johns admitted at the time he felt a little uneasy knowing how Milat felt about show.

“I must say I had a few restless nights thinking of (Milat’s) escape.”
