A scheduling mix-up at work has given me the morning off. At first, I was annoyed that I woke up at 6 a.m. and rode my bike down there in the wind, only to ride it back 30 minutes later. But then I surfed for two hours and I wasn’t annoyed anymore. Funny how that happens. PLUS, tomorrow’s my birthday! For no reason, other than the fact that I’m now in a good mood and I feel like posting something, here’s my current favorite Aussie commercial:
Who’s got a good birthday surf vid I can use for tomorrow?! Send it ova!
I agree. As an Aussie I was really surprised by the quality of TV commercials here in the US. I had expected that the US would have bigger production values, a bigger audience and therefore much better commercials. But it’s not the case.
I guess it’s all about marketing and what works in different countries. Aussies love humour, cleverness, etc and I think commercials need to be really well thought-out and well-presented to have any effect in Australia. Perhaps in the US it’s more about the product, which can sell itself better than it could in Australia (I don’t know, I’m just talking out of my ass here:).
Hahaha I think it’s a fair analysis? Thanks for reading!
