Gok Wan first came to my attention on tv in England in 2008. I never imagined I would see him Australia, but here he is, advertising Target. He is on tv ads, buildings and public transport vehicles. He is nice enough looking and looks impossibly well groomed and clean. I really haven't taken much notice though. I think he known for his sense of style and as a style adviser. I just know the style queen of Wales John sups up Gok's every word of fashion advice. Here he is on the side of a tram taken from the Highrise.
I am sure gays invented it in the seventies, but as Gok does, if you want to put on a bit of side and sound posh in an ironical manner, Target can be pronounced as tarjay, soft j. I expect gays were also responsible for the pronunciation of, or Priceline as Pric e leeney.
(Well that was the plan. He is on the side of tram 3529. But 3529 has either been in a horrible accident or its engines are broken. I keep checking my Tram Tracker phone app and 3529 has just disappeared. However, here is a photo taken by Ian Green)
But wait, three weeks after I wrote this post, there is no need to use Ian's photo. 3529 went past the Highrise today. I will take my own snap.
Wow, Gok was once 21 stone. That is 133 kg in Celsius. Poor Gok. Although once voted the 100th sexiest man in the world by voters of a woman's magazine, he isn't married and doesn't have children. Ah, his mother is Anglo English. Now if he had a good Chinese mother, she would make sure the right girl was lined up for him. Now don't you be saying anything suggestive about him. He just hasn't met the right lassie.
Seems Target has received some homophobic feedback from the great unwashed.
