This bloke is the gift that keeps on giving.
Melbourne Storm's Brandon Smith is single-handedly writing his name into NRL folklore.
Or more specifically, NRL Grand Final partying folklore.
From his iconic post-game interview with Nine's Brad Fittler to his antics during the week-long celebrations, Smith - also know as 'The Cheese' - is quickly becoming a favourite among rugby league fans.
But it was his latest stunt that well and truly took the cake.
After collecting their first NRL Premiership rings together, Smith was booked in for a live radio interview with his Storm teammate Cooper Johns.
The Storm duo were actually lined up to have a chat with Cooper's father Matthew Johns for his new show Morning Glory on 1170 SEN.
Unfortunately for young Cooper, though, he was abandoned by his colleague.
Smith was a no-show.
The radio interview went on regardless but Cooper, who is currently partying with the team in Byron Bay, was left to explain exactly why he was going to be a one-man band for the segment.
When asked what had happened to The Cheese, Cooper said: "Well, I told him. I told him three days ago. Friday 11 o'clock, book it in.
"Basically, I got a text at about 6 o'clock this morning and I can't decipher what the text means. It's not English, I don't know what it is. He hasn't rocked up to our Airbnb so I don't know where he is."
The interview went on for a couple of minutes before Cooper interrupted his father to deliver some huge news regarding his AWOL teammate.
"Boys, you wouldn't believe me," he said.
"The Cheese has just walked through the door.
"Cheese, you're on the radio live so-"
Which is when Smith chimed in and simply said: "Never been better."
Clearly sounding a little worse for wear, The Cheese's injection left Matty Johns and the panel in stitches.
"Never been better," Smith repeated.
Matty Johns then introduced Smith to Fox League reporter James Hooper.
Hoops and Storm star Smith had gone back and fourth via social media in the week leading up to Grand Final.
"Hey Hoops, how are you?" Smith asked.
To which Hooper replied: "I'm good how are you buddy?"
"Never been better like I said," The Cheese responded.
The Melbourne Storm players are clearly enjoying their Premiership victory - and rightly so.
But there seems to be one MVP at the centre of it all: The Cheese.
