‘Top Of The Pops’ caught up with Daniel Powter in a Q&A and asked the ‘Bad Day’ singer what’s the most embarrassing injury he’s ever had.
“The most embarrassing injury? Probably this one right here, on the back of my head. [Lifts his hat to reveal a big scar.] Which was a, er, bad cut, a deep cut,” he explained. “I don’t like to talk about that because it’s kind of psychological, I feel like I’m on the couch, but… embarrassing injury. That, and… and, this is a true story, because I think I talked about this last time. I was actually, when I was very foolish and young, on a bet, I had to go and run around with all my clothes off in Vancouver. So we all had go to one bar naked – it was kind of like a university thing – while I was running through it, this is a true story, I sprained my ankle. So I was naked with a sprained ankle, and I am not kidding. You can phone Brian and Mark and ask them. So I came limping – not streaking out, running out – It was very awful.”
