In the 1980s I bought into the Aussie hype. I loved Crocodile Dundee, Men at Work, Yahoo Serious and just about anything else that was nice enough to get exported from the “Land down Under”. Yet once they started making commercial starring Aussies, I always found them to be over loud or too kinetic and watching them got exhausting. I specifically remember the “One of these!” battery commercials as particularly overwhelming and I wondered if that was just something they exported or did that type of stuff actually run in Australia. After finding this commercial on YouTube this morning, I am sorry to report that this sort of madness also aired in Australia, although I am not sure at what rate or if the volume and mannerism has the same effect on them.
Calm down Jacko.
