Post Malone cuddling a koala will make you forget he’s a bada*s rapper

If you come to Australia and don’t cuddle a koala, did you even visit Australia at all?

A scenario rapper Post Malone won’t have to deal with as he’s certainly acquainted himself with our furry ambassador and we’ve got the video to prove it.

Footage of Post, real name Austin Post, cradling a koala while visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane, will make you catch the warmest of fuzzy feels. Just look how stoked he is.

The Texan musician, 22, is Down Under touring with the sold out FOMO Festival and is not taking Australian customs lightly.

At FOMO’s Brisbane show, he sunk a bevvy out of someone’s sneaker in front of one of the most enthusiastic crowds of the day. Kind of legendary.

He also got the obligatory snap with a kangaroo...

Post will hit the stage showcasing tracks from his acclaimed debut album Stoney at FOMO in Sydney and Melbourne next weekend.
