    Joe Hockey was in the studio for an interview with ABC Breakfast News, but decided to crash the Sunrise live cross for a chat with hosts David Koch and Natalie Barr.

    Hockey was also extremely excited about getting to ring the opening bell at the stock exchange, and managed to fit in a dig at Kevin Rudd for good measure.

    When asked if he was going to spot Kevin Rudd in New York, he responded with "Well anywhere there's a camera, you know Kevin!"

    And then Nelson complimented him on his skin.
