Crikey today received a press release from SBS about the man with the most fortuitous vowel in showbiz. And yes, we will be bidding:


SBS World News Australia Presenter, Anton Enus is offering the chance to get into his pants… all in the name of charity!

A suit and jacket worn by Anton on SBS’s World News Australia will be auctioned off on eBay in the first week of December to raise money for the Victorian AIDS Council. “This suit has appeared in more SBS headlines than Paris Hilton.” – Anton Enus.

Anton has been working with the Victorian AIDS Council for World AIDS Day 2007 and is hosting a forum in Melbourne on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights along with a number of other high profile speakers.

World AIDS Day is on Saturday, 1 December and is an internationally recognised day to raise community awareness about HIV and AIDS issues.

Born in South Africa where over 18% of people between15-49 years of age are HIV positive, Anton is aware of how important it is to both prevent the transmission of HIV and provide support for people living with HIV/AIDS.

The suit will be up for auction from Monday, 3 December until Sunday, 9 December on eBay and will form part of Australian Giving Week’s online celebrity auction.

To bid for the suit visit and follow the links from the home page. All the details and photographs of Anton wearing the suit and jacket including the measurements, brand and colour are available on the site.

This is a once-off opportunity to ‘Get in Anton’s Pants’ and raise funds for a worthy cause so make sure you get behind it, and place your bid!

Anton Enus is available for interview by contacting Myka Hoffman (02) 9430 3784 or [email protected]
