During the event, 36-year-old Chris took centre stage as he presented the campaign details to the gathered audience.
Speaking to Michael “Wippa” Wipfli on stage, Chris, who also stars in the new global campaign, revealed he’d once tricked a young American traveller into a helicopter ride to his home town of Byron Bay during the Australian leg of a global press tour.
“We were lucky enough to be choppered from one place to the next,” he told the radio host.
“On the way to the airport we saw a backpacker with a sign heading to the same location we were heading to. And we said, this will be pretty funny.
“We were like, ‘Where are you headed?’ and he said, ‘Byron Bay’. So we were like, ‘We’ll give you a lift, mate’.”
Chris said the young hitchhiker was confused when he got in the car and it took off in the wrong direction, towards the airport and then straight onto the tarmac where a helicopter was waiting.
“He was a young American backpacker, a musician and just blown away,” he said.
“We flew right into the heart of Byron. And as we landed he turned to my mate and said, ‘Is that Thor?’
“My mate was like, ‘Nah, nah, it’s not’. We got some mileage out of it.”
Terri was named as an ambassador earlier this month, and will promote Australia's larrikin lifestyle as part of the new 'PhilAUSophy' campaign.
Other high-profile Aussies taking part include surfer Mick Fanning, chef Kylie Kwong and comedian Adam Hills.
