Why are so many people so obsessed with this 'legendary' 20L Bunnings bucket?

“Other buckets pail in comparison” - get it?

Bunnings shoppers have seriously outdone themselves with their hilariously entertaining reviews of one of the most simple, yet handy products on the hardware shop’s website.

If you search for "Bunnings 20L Pail Bucket” on the website, you’ll find the crack-up reviews left by fans of the 4.6-star rated bucket.

Although we don't know how or why this trend started, we have to appreciate the efforts of the reviewers because some of these are just too good!

A personal favourite of mine was left by one Aussie buyer who claims the green branded bucket has “changed lives”.

“The legends are true. It's next level to have one of these. I notice women look at me differently now & the blokes respect me more now. I know they know about the bucket & they know I know they know about the bucket,” They said in their 5/5 star review.

Mr. Steve added his 5-star review titled ‘More Than Just a Bucket’ as he wrote about its versatile use as a pair of drums.

He said: “The sound and tone are perfect for drumming ensembles… Do yourself a favour and buy a whole set so you can have drumming parties with a group of friends out the back with a few beers and some snags on the barbie.”

And you know what? Damon 100% agrees, adding that his experience with the bucket helped him get a promotion at his job. I’m taking notes!

Michelle added that it was “on [her] bucket list” to purchase the popular buckey. In fact, she said that she would 10/10 buy again as “other buckets pail in comparison” - get it?

And last, but certainly not least we have Bob the Dog who found he needed a second shot at love with his bucket, after incorrectly using it the first go around.

“Everything I put in it just fell out… I took it back, and the person behind the counter had the audacity to tell me I’ve got it upside down… seemed to bucket just fine after that.” Thank goodness!

I don’t think we could’ve risked a bad review in the mix.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m convinced I need to head to Bunnings after work to pick myself up a set of bucket drums. Who knows, I might be leaving my own review next!
