Good idea, let down by direction. Also, there was clearly only enough money for one good one - footy player and Lassie suck the pus.

How come Tommy Lee's allowed to ride around town without a seatbelt on, but every single fucker in my Mistubishi brochure has to be wearing one for fear of a legal atom bomb?

Great. But baffled at why you didn't stick with just the first two and spend the rest on a lunch at Minx's.

Post Production by Karl Marx, the father of Communinism?

Communinism? Is that an ability to combine being a uni student, a Comminist a unionist?

The name Karl Marks is an amalgam of the two founders, Karl and Mark. The Karl Marx gag was intentional and implicit in the naming of the company, so 4:19, you're about 20 years too late.

I like the Tommy Lee ad because he's enjoyable to watch. However, the idea that accessing the net via BigPond is akin to being treated like a rockstar is the most ludocrous assertion I've possibly ever heard.

HEAPS better than most of the crap out there. I say Belgie Baby has taken his little slice of Telstra and made it a shit load more interesting and fun than the rest of the account that's spread around town.
Good stuff.

Feels like an unfathomable waste of money. They tell me that stars are demanding mofos. OK, good. Now what the fuck has that got to do with internet access? They just don't communicate anything about Telstra! Now stop fucking it for the rest of us by doing ads that are clearly not going to work.

even though i want to kick him square in his oversized cock, tommy lee is fairly amusing.

but shit, how many great little ads could you make for the pammie banger's fee?

oh and is it just me, or is 26 seconds of action, followed by a tag line tenuously linking the action to the product getting a bit boring now?
