Seven Sharp co-host Jeremy Wells managed to pay tribute to amateur Kiwi stuntman and comedian Johnny Danger Bennett by taking a "Danger Swig" of his water at the close of Wednesday's show.
Police confirmed today that it was Bennett who died in a motorcycle crash at 2.30pm on Dairy Flat Highway near Lucas Heights, Albany, on April 25.
Wells said he had met the colourful character on a number of occassions and seemed to have a good handle on the 29-year-old's signature move the "Danger Swig".
Johnny Danger was a well known stunt man with a large social media following - over 290,000 strong on Facebook.
He often created videos of his antics to post online, with one particularly famous stunt his riding on the top of a taxi while it travelled over Auckland Harbour Bridge.
