Aussie football legend Sam Kekovich makes a return appearance in BMF's much anticipated follow-up to last year's internationally award-winning 'UnAustralian' campaign. In this year's MLA Australia Day campaign for Lamb, Sam argues that a lack of Lamb has led to serious errors in judgement, and urges the nation to remedy their "unAustralian" behaviour by serving Lamb on Australia Day.

pineapple lumps, that's quite funny. Like it.

Clarkes shoes, shit you get a brief that says 'durable shoes' and the first thing you'd think of would be pissed-off shoe repairers. Not only is the idea crap, but nothing actually happens in the ad.

Lamb? More of the same, but nice anyway.

All fuckin' shit. Crap. Bollocks. Twaddle. My posts on this blog are better than these ads. Grrrr. Can't you tell how bitter and jealous I am that I never get briefs like that? Anyone who gets better work up than me is a cunt, and I'm gonna tell the whole world about it, well the 2 dozen people who frequent this blog anyway...

pineapple lumps - only the kiwis could incorporate creationism, the happy go lucky inferiority complex of a nation and the end line "sweet as dude". I like it.

As for aussie lamb - good on 'em for keeping it real.

clarke shoes - the production caught me to begin with, but the story left me wanting so much more.

I reckon some film companies have way better media players than others - there's a fair sampling on this post. Some play cleanly and smoothly, some are buggy and slow. Some let you download, others don't. It makes a big difference to the old "user experience". Just a thought.

So once again, 12 months after the first controversy, BMF give us yet another knockoff?

I still think this article on crikey is valid.

Old argument mate... Hamlet cigars (Mr. Baldy) was voted best ad of all time at Cannes... It was ripped straight from a Mr. Baldy comedy skit. Honda Cog was an idea ripped from a short fim done in france. So what's your point? Do some work you failed ad geek.
