Ninth post - I love this ad!  
Every year for Australia Day the Lamb Council puts out a new ad, and this year's is brilliant!

Love when the "neighbours" arrive "choice barbeque eh bro".



Very much looking forward to the public holiday on Thursday.

Love it - see it's copped a fair amount of flak already, mind...

I actually hesitated before posting it, because I wondered whether it would leave me open to accusations of racism. But the ad makers had one minute in which to get their point across, and stereotypes are a visual shortcut, so I can understand why they used them. None of the stereotypes used were derogatory in any way; and interestingly enough, the only race not presented as a stereotype was the First People themselves.

I got the gist of it... but it needs subtitles :-)

But it's all in English! *g*. I can see that we would have a communication problem, if ever we were to meet. :-)

Yeah, we might. just a tad!

When I visited the UK in 2000, I had a bit of trouble with local accents : it seemed each town had its own way of speaking English ;-/

Never had any trouble with the british Antiques Roadshow :-/
I guess they speak the "Queen's English"...

OTOH, the French don't understand the Quebec accent either!

I loved it. It's irreverent and saucy, and fun.
