Jacky Rattanachaya, 24, is an IT graduate from Macquarie University who now owns his own web design company, Hexticdesign.com. But you know him as the dude who brought a huge cabbage to the Coldplay concert. The photo of his cabbage left on the floor after the concert has now racked up over 4,000 shares on Facebook, but what was it doing there? Jacky tells all.  


Why did you bring a cabbage to a concert?

I did not expect something like this to go viral! Me and my mates just walked through a market in front of the stadium, and I realized I should have something to wave at the concert. We weren't allowed to take in signs or anything shiny and metallic, so I just grabbed a cabbage, thinking that would do the job [laughs]. 

You weren't going to throw it at Chris, were you?

Not in any way! It would have been the worst thing if I had done that to Chris or anyone.You should respect people. 

Is this the first time you've brought fruit and veg to a rock concert?

This was my first time attending something as huge and memorable as this. Coldplay is one of the most famous bands in the world! So no, I have never brought fruit and veg to any kind of concert [laughs]. It was just exciting to do something so memorable!

Did you mean to leave it there?

I did not! When the concert came to an end, people were leaving but it was just so packed. I dropped it on the ground and the crowd just kicked. As people passed by I heard them mumbling, "who the hell brought this sh*t to coldplay? What a legend." [Laughs] Then i could not find it anymore.

What was your reaction when you saw it went viral?

When I woke up in the next day, I saw that my video clip had more than 100k views! I was laughing so hard. It really became the talk of the town. The whole thing has been so memorable.
