Mullet of the Week – Issue 14

This mullet belonged to a man who was found roaming the streets of Hamilton on a bustling Saturday night with a bunch of the boys. One thing we’ll compliment old mate on (besides his mullet), is his pronunciation of kupu Māori.

Nexus: We’re here outside Bar101 – can you just give us a little introduction to who you are and where you’re from?

Regan: So, my name’s Regan and I’m from Tokoroa. I’m a dairy farmer, born and bred on the farm and I pull bitches.

Nexus: Can you tell us what was involved in your decision to get a mullet?

Regan: I was brought up in a small town with my brothers, my mates, my boys right here and we all had mullets. They’ve cut them off, but my mate’s mum is a hairdresser and she inspired me. She said “You need to get a mullet”. My family and I were the first Indians in town, in history, so back in 1997 or 1998 we came here.

Nexus: Can you describe for us where and when the mullet was cut?

Regan: I turned 21 last year in March, so I’ve had it since then. Yeah, I’ve had it since 2019.

Nexus: Who cut it?

Regan: So my friend’s mum, Melody May, cut it. You can search her up on Instagram. She works at Hair21.

Nexus: What have been some of the reactions to your mullet?

Regan: The girls love it bro! I can’t tell you how many girls give me compliments on it! I’m getting it braided next week.

Nexus: That’s wicked bro. Do you have any words of advice for people considering getting a mullet?

Regan: Bro, if you’ve got a mullet you’re going to pull for sure, no matter what.

Nexus: If you were to describe your mullet in just a couple of words bro, what would those words be?

Regan: Filthy as fuck

Nexus: Filthy as fuck aye?

Regan: Class in the front, filthy in the back. Keep it filthy on the back, no matter what.

Nexus: That’s great man. All the best and thanks for chatting with us.
