PSA: Hundreds Of People Are Gathering At The Brisbane Wheel To Say ‘Wow’ Like Owen Wilson

By James Shackell - 23 Feb 2018


Possibly the most Melbourne event we've heard all month, is now sweeping the nation and is coming to Brisbane! 

NFI what we're talking about? So, there’s this thing happening on Sunday 4 March at the Brisbane Wheel. There’s no real way to describe it so we’re just going to come straight out: hundreds of people are gathering and say ‘Wow!’ like Owen Wilson. That’s it. That’s exactly what’s happening.

See it turns out that actoe Owen Wilson says ‘Wow!’ in his movies... a lot. And there’s a group of people that want to celebrate that fact. If you’d like to brush up, here’s a short compilation of the many times Owen Wilson has said ‘Wow!’

Now the big question: how exactly do you ‘Wow!’ like Owen Wilson? It has to be said: this guy nails his wows. You’re gonna have to capture that sort of child-like falsetto. And there’s a slight elongation on the second W. Sometimes he kind of whispers his ‘wow’, as if he really is overcome by the sheer ‘wowness’ of the occasion. You can’t teach that kind of acting...

Anyway, this thing exists and according to the Facebook event page, over 500 people are already planning to say ‘Wow!’ like Owen Wilson. Let's make it 1,000-plus, Brisbane, 'cause that's a whole lot of 'Wows'.
