sunrise weather presenter Sam Mac was left “fixed” on a recent trip to Kmart — after learning his autobiography was selling for just one dollar.
Mac released casual weatherman last year, initially on the shelves for $32.99.

The book is about how a boy who knows nothing about meteorology scores the coveted weather appearance at Australia’s best breakfast show.
The presenter was in Melbourne for a sunrise segment when he filmed a TikTok video to inform followers of his “confrontational” discovery.
“Life was good until I got the message that my book had been reduced to one dollar,” he began.
Mac was seen taking “a moment of contemplation” about the price drop, before traveling to Kmart “immediately, to find out what they valued more than my book”.
Unfortunately for the Channel 7 star, “the results were confrontational”.
As he flipped through Kmart, Mac saw that a dog food scooper cost six times the price of his book, along with “Groucho Glasses” that were double that.
“What kind of loser would pay that for a new pair of glasses?” he asked.
The weather host was shocked to see that a brass padlock was worth seven times more than his book.
“I was upset, but there had to be more to the story,” he said.
As Mac set out on his quest for answers, he tracked down a Kmart salesperson pushing a cart of boxes and asked if one of them had new copies of his book.
“Where’s the cart for shipping Sam Mac’s book, Sam the Weatherman?” he asked the employee.
“No,” the Kmart assistant replied simply.
Unfortunately for Mac, the blows continued as he made his way to the book section.
He turned the camera to an autobiography of Will Smith that sold 22 times more than his book.
In a moment of mock protest – related to Smith’s Controversial Oscars Night Clap – Mac threw the book off the shelf.
‘Half a pack of Tic Tacs’
After Mac left the book department, he was distracted by the ’90s bangers in Kmart and one’ pit bull song per hour policy,” grooving to the catchy music from the store.
“I had to focus again, was it really two dollars for a pack of Tic Tacs?” he asked as he walked to the counter.
Suspecting this was wrong, Mac took the Tic Tacs to the counter and asked the clerk to scan them.
After the two-dollar price came out, Mac said, “So, twice the value of my book.”
“I just learned the painful truth,” he said.
“My book, my life, my story is worth half a pack of Tic-Tacs.
The weather presenter seemed defeated as he sat outside the store eating his Tic Tacs while wearing the new glasses.
But in true Sam Mac fashion, the video ended on a climax when he finally found something worth less than his book.
“But it wasn’t all bad news,” he said, reaching for a 75-cent Curly Wurly chocolate.
Directly to the chocolate, Mac said, “In your curly face I’m worth more than you, ha ha ha!”
TikTokers seemed to love the “priceless” video and made Mac feel better by explaining Kmart’s low prices.
“That’s really good — it could go as low as $0.10,” said a comment about the one dollar price tag.
“But still $26.25 at Booktopia,” said another.
“Kmart is discounting their books so much that I picked up the first one to all the boys I’ve loved before book last for 75 cents…!” added a third.
Meanwhile, the video convinced a TikToker to buy the book: “To be honest, I don’t know who you are, but I’m excited to buy your book now”.
