-Can we take a moment?
I’m so excited. [ Cheers and applause ]
I’m so excited. Thank you for being part of
my prime-time special. I’m so excited to have you here
for so many reasons. One of them, though,
is because you all started off recording videos
in your dorm rooms and uploading them onto YouTube.
Is that correct? -Mm.
-Almost. -Yeah, almost correct.
We were younger than that. Were about 15.
-There were no dorm rooms. -Yeah, we didn’t —
None of us made it to college. [ Laughter ]
-We’re 15 to 17, the age group, so it was more like at —
-Well, it was at — -Yeah, your house, right?
-Yeah, it was in my granny flat. That’s what we called it. -Which is where, yeah,
his granny lived. -But you uploaded them
to YouTube. -Yes.
-Team YouTube! Yes! Internet! Team Internet!
Where all good things come from. So, since then —
and I want to read this ’cause this is very impressive. Since then, you are now the only
Australian band in chart history to have three albums enter
Billboard 200 at number 1. Can we take a moment?
-Yeah! [ Cheers and applause ] Incredible.
-Yeah. -So, I need to ask, whose rider has gone
from zero to 100 real quick? So, if you don’t know,
a rider is basically, when people come to perform
on the show, a rider indicates, like, all their needs,
like the food and the snacks and all the stuff
that they require. So what does
your rider look like? -Mike? You’re pretty good
with this stuff. -Uh, there were
some animal cookies. -Okay.
-They were wonderful. I haven’t seen them
in a very long time, so thank you so much
for getting them for us. -So, animal cookies.
-Animal cookies. -Pretty low maintenance.
-Yeah, obviously. Just the animal cookies.
-It’s so funny you say that, actually, ’cause I have a copy
of your rider right here. -Oh, no.
-You’ll see. It’s actually quite long.
[ Laughter ] -Tea, coffee, fresh lemons,
root ginger… -24 room temperature!
-Room temperature. There’s a wine I can’t even
pronounce right there. [ Laughter ] A single — a single —
ripe avocado. -One ripe avocado.
-It’s pretty healthy, though. -Wait. Why are you
exposing us like this? I was not expecting this.
-I like this bit. Small black towels.
-Small black towels. -They only make big ones.
-I need to know why small. Did someone ever give you
a medium towel, and you were like,
“How dare you give me a medium black towel! I specifically indicated
‘small’!” -I’m feeling quite attacked.
-Yeah. [ Laughter ]
-Here’s the thing. I bring this up, seriously,
because, you know, the show’s starting out,
working with a budget, I wasn’t able to fulfill
everything on their rider, so I wanted to make up
for a few things, because one of the things
you have on your rider is vegan cheddar squares.
-Do we? -Yes.
I couldn’t find them. But instead, I got you this
plate of cardboard squares. [ Laughter ] Because I thought they’d
probably taste the same. -Honestly, it’s just as good,
as well. Thank you so much.
-You guys can share those. -Actually, you know what?
There’s a box here. -You know what?
-They’re meant to be all flat, so I’m okay.
[ Laughter ] -You see?
And next time, it’s gonna say, “Flat vegan cheddar.”
Okay. The next thing, you said
you wanted a bucket of ice. Our ice machine was broken,
but I did get you… -Are we the worst?
I’m sorry. [ Laughter ] -With a face like that?
Absolutely not. [ Laughter ] But we did get you a bucket
of ice cubes. -Oh!
-As you can see right here. You can do it.
Put your back into it. There you go.
-That’s really nice.
