THIS IS THE MARK BRANDON ‘CHOPPER’ READ STORY
This tell all documentary digs deep into the life of the infamous Mark Brandon “Chopper” Read. Be enthralled by Chopper’s personal commentary on the fascinating events of his own life, hear his opinions, thoughts and interaction with the Australian underworld. Gain a “real-life” perspective on this underworld, it’s characters and events, many of which have been portrayed in Channel 9’s gritty TV Series “Underbelly”. In this once in a lifetime perspective, Chopper talks about some of the characters and events that formed the dark canvas of the Australian underworld portrayed in “Underbelly”. FAT BELLY… Beware of imitations.
I was given this video by my son (love him, he knows I love this stuff!) and in true chopper style, he is cashing in on a good thing, by associating himself with Underbelly and riding its coat-tails for the free publicity…(Or is it the other way around?)
Any Chopper fan (remember the movie, when he was portrayed by a not so famous yet Eric Bana) will love this. Plenty of laughs, chats about the series Underbelly, Reminisces about the old days etc. There is a funny bit where he rocks up to the old Pentridge Prison, presses the buzzer and says ” Gidday mate, its chopper read here, any chance you can let me in and have a walk around?

The other funny thing is some say we look alike??? Anyway here is the promo
