Eddie Jones Parody: Wallabies' Coach Takes a Humorous Exit Interview

BY Philip Bendon  ·  Tuesday Nov 7, 2023

In the world of rugby, humour can sometimes be the perfect antidote for fans reeling from a disappointing World Cup campaign.

Such was the case with a recently surfaced parody video that hilariously lampooned former Australian national team, the Wallabies, head coach Eddie Jones and his exit interview following the team’s disastrous performance in the Rugby World Cup.

The Wallabies, for the first time in their storied history, failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament, leaving fans and pundits in shock and disbelief.

Created by comedian Steven P Connolly, the parody video took a lighthearted approach to a sombre situation, with an AI-generated deep fake brilliantly impersonating Eddie Jones.

In the video, the faux Jones couldn’t help but be the butt of the joke, poking fun at himself and his larger-than-life proclamations when he first took the reins of the Wallabies.

It’s no secret that Jones made some audacious statements during his tenure, promising grandeur and success. Yet, the team’s disappointing World Cup campaign painted a very different picture.

One of Jones’s memorable quotes that the video didn’t forget to include was his proclamation that his team wasn’t going to France for the croissants ahead of the World Cup.

The irony was not lost on fans, as this quote came back to haunt him when the Wallabies were sent home early from the competition.

The parody video provided a humorous take on what has been an immensely challenging period for Australian rugby.
