Robbie Magasiva's alternative career as a checkout operator

Kiwi actor Robbie Magasiva took some time out of his busy schedule being a hunk to throw the Jono and Ben at Ten show a bone, pretending to be a checkout operator at Countdown.

The experienced thespian from Sione's Wedding, Shortland Street and (most recently) Wentworth, had no trouble being convincing behind the checkout counter while taking directions from the show's hosts. Of course, hilarity ensues.
