An Australian man has become an overnight internet hero after chasing down two robbers with a broken flip flop on Australia's Gold Coast. His mate, Kane Wiblen, filmed the entire sequence of events and after posting the video to his Facebook page, the story was picked up by local and national news channels. The boys had clearly consumed a beer or two, and whilst stumbling to the "sevro" half naked, walked straight into the midst of an attempted robbery.

The video shows the James, the Aussie internet hero, taking the keys from the ignition of the 'getaway' car, before chasing the suspects down the street, shirtless, drunk and with a broken Flip Flop. James later revealed to news sources that he managed to "land a few punches," further stating that he "chased them, but because I'm fat they got away."
