Brendon Jones was ecstatic to win a brand new car from Wollongong City Motors Group.
But the Albion Park father-of-three never thought he'd also become a TikTok star after nailing victory in the half-time shootout at the Illawarra Hawks last home game against Tasmania JackJumpers.
That's exactly what happened after his son put a video up of Jones' winning half-court shot and celebration, reminiscent of the late Shane Warne after the spin-king picked up his 700th wicket at his beloved MCG.
"It's surreal. I don't have TikTok but I had to sign up after my son put the video up. I think over 860,000 people have viewed the video. It's crazy," the 40-year-old said.
Jones, who only recently sold his car and was driving a car "that really shouldn't be driven", said winning the car was "life-changing".
"I'm driving a car that probably shouldn't be on the road," he said.
"I was looking to buy a new car in a few weeks to help my daughter learn in a car that's actually safe to drive and then this happened.
"I am a bit emotional, things like this just don't happen. For it to happen to me I feel very grateful and humbled."
