‘Next up we have “Chrissy” Jimmy Butler Air Jordan 32 Low Hot Pink Men’s Basketball Shoes short for Christmas,’ he continued.
Adam knows Australians ‘love to shorten words’ but wasn’t convinced with the festive slang.
‘This one, I can’t quite put my finger on why I don’t love it, but I don’t think I can get behind it,’ he said.
