Kenworth-hater Gooserooter is doing what now?!

WE ALL know that The Gooserooter hates Kenworth trucks with a burning passion.

So, we were just as surprised as the next person to find out that he is bravely committed to getting the tattoo of his "arch nemesis" permanently etched into his skin, the mighty Kenworth, for all to see.

Why, do you ask?

Well, our mate from over the ditch in New Zealand has teamed up with his local radio station V3 FM and is trying to raise funds for the New Zealand charities the Breast Cancer Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

"There's been a stupid video going around saying if I get 500 likes I'll get my nipple pierced," Gooserooter, whose real name is Robbie Shefford, told his Facebook followers on his page "The Gooserooter from Basic Engineering and Mechanical Services, Geraldine".

"Well, the Gooserooter is cranking that challenge up to an extreme level, with a tattoo. A Kenworth based tattoo because we all know he hates Kenworth," the post read.

If the two can raise $5000 for each charity, Gooserooter will get the Kenworth tattoo on his leg.

"Not just any tattoo, but a Kenworth tattoo, 150mm to 200mm tall!"

In the video, filmed with his partner in the background, Gooserooter explained he picked the two charities to raise funds for because "if it doesn't affect me, it affects her and if it doesn't affect her, it affects me".

The Gooserooter has a large social media presence and shares his opinion on anything and everything with his Facebook followers.

Every Friday night he has a live phone-in session with V3 FM at 9pm.
