Matty J just recreated his tampon ad with Osher Gunsberg and we can't handle it

Our Bachelor star isn't afraid to poke fun of himself.

By Bella Brennan
The biggest week of his life is finally here.
And as our 2017 Bachelor Australia star Matty Johnson gears up to finally reveal his chosen one to the nation, he's making time for the things that matter most.
Like teaming up with The Bachelor host and his wingman Osher Gunsberg to recreate that now infamous 2009 tampon ad Woman's Day recently dug up from the treasure trove.
The 30-year-old proved he's definitely still got the gift of the gab when he swung by hit105 radio station in Brisbane to act out the hilarious Kotex U commercial with Osher and the show's host Abby Coleman.
"Not long until Matty J's @thebachelorau journey is over... we thought we'd see if he was ready to star in commercials again," the radio team teased alongside the video.
Matty was the ultimate good sport as he donned his thespian hat once more for the ~whacky~ radio skit.
"Do you want me to play the girl part?" Abby asked as Osh handed the bemused MJ the script.
Osher and Matty worked through their giggles to deliver pure magic.
But our talented Bachie didn't even need it, admitting: "I remember it!"
"He knows it off by heart," Osher chuckled.
"Has that been your pick-up line over the years?" Abby teased.
Cue the cheesy commercial music before Matty J immediately flipped into character and said, "Stranded on a dessert island and you can only take the essentials."

Before Abby responded, "My music, a tent, a few clothes, plenty of fluids... And I'd need you, for protection."
"Alright! Still got it," a beaming Matty remarked.
"Clients are lining up at the door," Osher teased.
Matty first appeared on our screens in this hilarious Kotex ad in 2009, with his little friend the beaver.
In August, Bachelor fans lost their collective minds after Woman's Day unearthed footage of Matty J's fledgling acting career in the pad ad.
"It aired on MTV and a few friends recognised it, but it’s safe to say I was never stopped in the street!” Matty told us when we asked him about his TV debut.
As for whether his Number One knows about his impressive resume, Matty explained: “I don’t think she is aware of it, so when she reads this it will 
be a little bit enlightening for her!”

Meanwhile, as Matty counts down to Thursday night he's given a touching shout-out to the person who has been there every step of the way - Osher.
"Osher you absolute legend of a human being. Can't thank you enough for being such a pillar of support. Not once but twice for me," Matty penned.
"Appreciate you being so generous with your time, offering advice, being so insightful and always being such a pleasure to be around. You've taught me so much. Sad to say there's only a week until our time together on the small screen comes to an end. I owe you buddy!"
Bless! What a team.
