American actor Steve Buscemi has a very Australian message to celebrate the New South Wales Fire Brigade Employees Union.
The Boardwalk Empire star, 63, who worked as a New York City firefighter in the ’80s before becoming an actor, showed his solidarity by donning a ‘shoes’ to NSW firefighters in a video that surfaced online again this week. praised.
The phrase ‘doing a shoe’ is an Australian slang term referring to the act of drinking alcohol – usually beer – out of a person’s shoes.
Shoes have become popular among globally performing Australian athletes, with Formula 1 star Daniel Ricciardo recently celebrating his Italian Grand Prix victory by drinking beer from his shoe.
Buscemi told fans that he knows how hard it can be to fight the hell out in NYC, but it’s inevitably tougher for Australian fighters – especially in bushfire season.
He said, ‘I myself am a city dweller and I don’t know what it is like to fight a forest fire.’
That’s real blue! Steve Buscemi, 63, supported New South Wales firefighters by donning a shoe filled with Fosters Lager and Vegemite in a viral video that resurfaced this week.
‘All I know is that it is extremely unpredictable and dangerous and, as we know, there is no such thing as a regular fire: no matter how experienced you are, you can find yourself in a tough spot in the blink of an eye. .’
Buscemi criticized the New South Wales government for failing to give its firefighters substantial pay increases in 2020.
Ending his video with a bang, the Reservoir Dogs star took off his shoe and poured it into a can of Fosters Lager.

It comes after Buscemi reflected on the trauma he suffered while assisting in the clean-up at the World Trade Center site after the 9/11 terrorist attack.

‘I was already seeing a therapist, and although it was almost impossible to process the enormity of what had happened, it was a consolation to just sit with someone with all the feelings. This is not something that first responders usually get.’
However, he recognized that ‘declaring one’s vulnerability’ can be a difficult task, especially for those whose job it is to protect others.
Buscemi also urged people to ‘never forget’ what happened, especially because the tragedy is still having a serious impact on people’s lives.
