You don't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs

We all know that the creative minds at triple j won the internet late last year with their all-star trailer for the 2016 Hottest 100, but anyone who's ever been within spitting distance of a video camera knows that something that awesome doesn't come together without a few hiccups along the way.

Thankfully, the j's have never been shy about poking fun at themselves, and to that end — with a week to go until the reveal of this year's top 100 songs as voted by the listening public — the national youth broadcaster has released its blooper reel from the mammoth undertaking, including a smorgasbord of golden, unused moments from the creation of the clip, from Ice Cube's son expressing embarrassment at his father's dad joke and Peking Duk's very sorry attempt at diving away from an explosion to Mark RonsonThe WombatsCourtney Barnett and others breaking on-camera, a touch of piracy from Hilltop Hoods, and an unbelievable amount of politeness Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi (as well as some problems with his TARDIS door).

It's nearly as good as the final product itself. Nearly.

Voting for this year's Hottest 100 is still open, closing this Friday, 22 January, at midday. If you haven't voted yet, you really ought to rectify that business, not least of all because every voter stands a chance to win triple j's 'Golden Ticket', which will get you and a mate into every. single. triple j-backed event in 2016, including Laneway, Splendour In The Grass, Groovin The Moo, Falls Festival and gigs from the likes of CHVRCHES, Kendrick Lamar, The Jezabels, A$AP Rocky, Grimes, Hilltop Hoods, Gang Of Youths and many more.
