Sam Neill's being creepy again! *shudder*

Post by AussieJo » Sat Feb 17, 2007 6:07 pm

These ads on Oz TV are supposed to get people to eat more red meat, but they just give me the creeps.

I suppose having him hand around children's playgounds, and leering through windows at families eating dinner is supposed to be "quirky", but to me he just comes over all Dr Weir...

Excuse me for saying so but what a big pile of sh!t. :evil: Those ads are factually incorrect and morally wrong. They would never get aired on UK television.

I don't have much to add. Just haven't posted since August or something crazy like that. And this seemed like a good post to do it in.

:monkeybutt I'm glad to see this still bears my name.

The "bad dancing" at teh end of the ad is an ongoing theme. In previous "eat more dead animal" campaigns, they've had old age pensioners doing it, then butchers...

IIRC, the ads are run by the Australian Meat and Livestock Corporation.

They do hilarous ones for lamb around Australia Day featuring an AFL (Aussie Rules Football) commentator who has become known through comedy programs for totally wacked-out, OTT speeches on various topics while maintaining a straight face. I'll look for some and post what I find...

Smart move reminding people that we're eating dead animals.
Wow, our "Beef: It does a body good!" commercials with Rodeo by Copland playing in the background are downright artistic by comparison.
