I come from the land down under

By Skylers Dad from Some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps.

As a followup to this post, I decided to share another item from the land down under. When I think of the Aussies, my mind brings up images of manly men. Guys like Hugh Jackman, Paul Hogan as Crocodile Dundee, and Mel Gibson in an apocalyptic future fighting off members of Kiss on steroids.

Then, while pursuing Boards Magazine, I stumble across this... this... well, I don't even know what to call this steaming hot cowpie. It's not really an ad, it's not really a Public Service Announcement, it carries the title of "The Importance of Awards in Advertising". It is done by the production company Revolver for the Australian Writers and Art Directors Association.

I must be some sort of masochist, because like driving by a horrific crash site and slowing down to see if you can spot the decapitated head still rolling across the pavement, I sit here mesmerized.

Jesus tap-dancing Christ I need help...

What the hell is this?

If its goal was to leave me confused and scratching my head, then it has achieved that swimmingly. Although the dandruff helped inspire the head-scratching, too.

If this is what I get with an advertising award, I don't want it.

I already have sexy friends.

DrZibbs: Please tell me, I haven't a clue...

Pistols: Apply lotion to both the affected areas.

Doc: When I thought of sexy friends, your avatar was the first thing that popped into my head.

And I thought I had sexy impressive friends! Fucking wow!

Weird dudes for sure but, man, what sharp dressers.

Sadly, "Say no to drugs" was not a campaign we had here.

I thought I had seen it all. And then came this.
