So where the bloody hell are you?



So where the bloody hell are you? is Australia's latest attempt to get more people from all over the world to come and visit the country. The TV ad depicts several Aussies saying things like, "We've poured you a beer and we've had the camels shampooed." It ends with a lady in bikini saying, "So where the bloody hell are you?"

In the UK and some countries, the TV ad has been banned and a censored version is forced to run in its place. Apparently the word "Bloody Hell" isn't suitable for TV in those countries.

Click here to view the full TV ad on YouTube. You can also view it at the official site. To listen to the "So where the hell are you?" official song, go to the official site and click Send A Postcard. The song will then play in the background once the new page loads.

I was thinking what will it be like if Singapore does a similar tourism ad campaign. Well, here is just an idea. Nabeh, where you?



Lots of people will be flocking to our little island with this one!

So Nabeh Where You? should be our new tourism campaign!

For the TV ad, we can get all the ahbengs and ahlians to act.

the new aussie ad is nice but i prefer the 'i can sing a rainbow' ad sung by delta goodrem.

Heh. Attracting neighbouring bengs and lians from Malaysian? That would work...

hahahahahaha!

Delta Goodrem's ad is the best tourism ad in the world!

The ad works because it is creating so much buzz. UK banning it is actually a good thing. People all over the world will want to see it for themselves to find out what it is about.

this is hilarious!!! hahaha... love the "LOR" .... very Singaporean... I bet only Singaporean and our close neighbours will understand what "na beh means...."

Someone should do a parody video of the australian ad using IZ's 'So Nabeh Where You?' idea. I think it will be damn funny.

Autobot said...

To those from overseas who do not know what Nabeh is...

It is a Hokkien vulgar word.

I wonder why people don't go to Australia. Because several of them are racist and unfriendly. Hence, what the hell must we spemd $ there?
