Bayou Renaissance Man has a post up about an Aussie TV contest between advertising agencies. The challenge was to produce an ad to sell something unsellable, in this case, the military conquest of New Zealand. Go look, they're great.
The Kiwis reaction ranged from indignant to amused and some proposed an equal time response. For myself, after viewing the first ad, the obvious answer is to begin promoting Kiwi breweries as part of the national defense. If the beaches were lined with cases of beer, the Australian army would be stopped in its tracks at the shoreline, and would probably be abjectly apologetic when brought before local magistrates the next morning on misdemeanor charges of drunk and disorderly, public urination, and the like.
What is it good for?
Taking Monday off! Yeah!
