They’re generally not known for their professionalism but The Alternative Commentary Collective proved the show must go on when one of their hosts underwent a vasectomy procedure whilst continuing to broadcast during yesterday’s NZ v Australia game.
Streaming the procedure live on Facebook, Mike Lane can be seen lying down in a hospital bed still watching the cricket on his phone and providing commentary while the doctor is busy at work.
“This is the most a man has touched my testicles since you have Jeremy” he says, referring to co-host Jeremy Wells.
“Yep that’s an interesting feeling... I can’t feel my balls, they are fully numb.”
Lane looks in pain most of the video, before eventually signing off saying: “Might have to leave you fellas, things are starting to get a little bit intimate.”
But it wasn’t long before Lane was back at work, returning to Eden Park, armed with a stash of prescription painkillers.
