Two footy fans camped outside AFL house, attempted to be heard at the national election and even got their message tattooed on themselves and, finally, Gill McLachlan granted them their wish.

TikTok duo, Marmalade, have campaigned all season for AFL boss McLachlan to ‘kick a torp’, taking their message across the country in a bid to win the outgoing chief executive’s attention.

Earlier this year, the pair put up a tent outside AFL house and hoped to catch McLachlan on his lunch break, but were ultimately unsuccessful.

They then created signs with their message and posted them alongside genuine campaign posters for this year’s elections, before visiting a tattoo shop to get their message inked on their legs.

Their efforts weren’t in vain, as the two footy fans were invited to the MCG for last year’s grand final and, finally, witnessed McLachlan kicking a torp.

The AFL boss posed for a photo alongside one of the duo, before lining up for his shot at goal. 

Unfortunately, his effort was not on target and drifted through for a behind. 

McLachlan won plenty of plaudits for the pre-match entertainment last Saturday, with Robbie Williams and Delta Goodrem delighting the 100,000 spectators at the MCG and the fans at home with a sensational performance.
