Meet Daniel McConnell The Man Who Gave The Best TV Interview

We may have found a new Australian legend.

His name is Daniel McConnell.

McConnell is a Brisbane local who was awoken in the middle of the night by somebody crashing into his friends shop.

The hero decided to try and catch the criminal, by running out of his house in nothing but underwear.

“I jumped out of bed and all I had was my undies on,” he told The Today Show.

“I’ve walked out the front and I’ve seen the car smashed and the bloke walking back to the car.

“So I’ve walked outside and said ‘what are you doing mate? You can’t be leaving the scene’.”

He was told "don’t be a hero’’ before the car drove off but Daniel didn’t give up, he jumped in his car and chased him down the street.

The story has a great ending, though, the criminal was arrested, the shop owner was insured and Daniel gave the best interview we have ever seen.
