Injured Geelong star Jeremy Cameron has been dubbed a ‘cartoon character’ after posting a hilarious post-surgery video and pictures eating McDonalds and taking painkillers.
- The Cats’ season ended with the Saints last Saturday
- Many players have been booked for surgery
- Cameron shared hilarious footage of the aftermath
Geelong AFL star Jeremy Cameron has posted hilarious photos and videos taken on his phone as he took painkillers after shoulder surgery.
The Cats star had to undergo AC joint surgery after St Kilda ended Geelong’s season last weekend so Cameron could get a head start on his pre-season recovery.
It comes just days after Cameron was allegedly headbutted in an unprovoked attack at a pub in Geelong on Saturday night.
Coming out of sedation for surgery, Cameron – whose nickname is Dart – found his phone nearby and created a hilarious video, sputtering his words and flashing a beaming smile.
“Hey guys, welcome to Dart’s YouTube channel. I feel pretty good right now, yeah,” he said.
“Phwoar had a little accident, I just want to let you know that I fell off my boat.”
Still feeling the effects of sedation and painkillers, a very happy Jeremy Cameron tucks into a hamburger from McDonalds.

Cameron also shared an extremely pleased image of himself as he enjoyed a well-deserved McDonald’s after his surgery.
Realizing what he had done, Cameron decided to share the images and photos with his fans on Instagram with the caption: “Happy tools day here”. Reminder to hide the phone (laughing emoji). Looking forward to feeling 100 percent.
Cameron is known for posting hilarious videos on his social media, including losing his Prime Minister’s medal to a cow following the grand final celebrations last year.
He also shared a groggy message at his Geelong property as he recovered from being knocked out by teammate Gary Rohan earlier this season.

And her fans were quick to applaud her for sharing the new batch of hilarious content.
“Jezza is a cartoon character I swear,” a fan replied.
“This has to be the most random post I’ve seen,” added another.
“From now on, whenever a footballer does something a bit stupid, we should just say ‘he fell out of his boat’.” yet another suggested.
“Oh my God Jeremy, I always try to make everyone laugh. PS you should have hidden the phone from yourself,” another fan posted.
Geelong will be awaiting a host of premiership stars, including Tom Hawkins and Jeremy Cameron, for their final clash with the Western Bulldogs.
Having been knocked out of the final race with a loss to St Kilda last Saturday night, the Cats are already eyeing 2024.
Cameron finished second in that collision with Geelong team-mate Gary Rohan earlier in the season.
Forward Hawkins, Cameron and Gary Rohan are struggling with various injuries and won’t be at risk in Norm Smith medalist Isaac Smith’s retirement game.
Mark Blicavs and Cam Guthrie are already on the sidelines and will focus on preparing for next year rather than rushing back.
Small forward Brad Close (ankle) and defender Esava Ratugolea (hamstring) have already been ruled out by coach Chris Scott after picking up injuries against the Saints.
“We had to be proactive about some of the decisions we had to make,” said Geelong football boss Simon Lloyd.
Gary Rohan will have ankle surgery on Wednesday and Jeremy Cameron will have surgery on his troublesome AC joint.
“It’s amazing that he (Cameron) was able to continue and perform at a certain level, and now is the time to be proactive with this surgery on his AC joint.”
