Patrick Dempsey Accidentally Talked About Erections on Live TV

By: Jon Corrigan

Patrick Dempsey really needs to brush up on his Australian slang.

While promoting his upcoming film Bridget Jones’s Baby with co-star Renee Zellweger on Australia’s Today morning show, the former Grey’s Anatomy star accidentally started discussing erections.

Dempsey tried to impress the show’s co-hosts with his knowledge of Aussie slang, saying, “Traveller … Traveller’s a beer you travel with, right?”

The co-hosts immediately burst out laughing when they heard “traveller,” leaving Dempsey confused and prompting him to ask, “What the heck is a traveller?”

One host leaned in and whispered the meaning in his ear.

“Oh, excuse me,” an embarrassed Dempsey responded.

In Australia, the term “traveller” is an erection a male develops while riding public transportation.
