Why do we keep getting all these Aussie alcohol that real Aussies never drink? Foster's is another example.ah I goggled. It looks like some branding of a generic cheap plonk from anywhere here and trying to emulate the success of the execrable Yellow Tail in USA. The ad blurb is laughable and a lot of it is plain wrong. No one calls a gum tree a "mallee" - ever.
Yes, what I hear from colleagues in Perth and those who have worked recently elsewhere in Oz is that if you come now, you've well and truly missed the boat. You guys have done a London/UK thing to your house prices and renting."The rent here is insanely expensive"
Property-obsessed Australians love asking locals of other countries how much rent they pay. And unless you're in Switzerland, or Japan, or maybe Sweden, the answer will inevitably be such a piddling sliver of the amount we pay in Australia that you'll instantly weigh up the possibility of moving there.
No, I was posting that after my workout on Android and it's annoying to post those URLs: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-41045560You were too drunk to put in a working link to the story?
Wait till you see the reaction to the next ad in the series - featuring Muhammad.http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-41169928
"India has lodged a diplomatic protest with Australia over an advert depicting the Hindu god Ganesha enjoying lamb. The TV advert, by a meat industry lobby group, portrays figures from several religions sitting down to a meal."
If only Australians were more sensitive to the plight of the brown man.
I remember a Whicker's World episode from the 80s about that place. Fascinating.
