January 26 is fast approaching and as always, Meat and Livestock Australia’s lamb ad is out - But this year’s is the most politically charged yet.
Many Aussies are applauding this year’s lamb BBQ ad for its multiculturalism and overall fun vibes!
The ad quite clearly sends a message of unity for all, featuring a wide variety of cultures and ending with the tag line ‘you never lamb alone’.
As it has been a topic of discussion picking up in recent years, the support for a date change is suggested by the fact that the ad actually doesn’t mention ‘Australia Day’ once.
Packed with stars including Meyne Wyatt, Sam Kekovich, Cathy Freeman, Wendell Sailor, Poh Ling Yeow, Adam Gilchrist and Rhys Nicholson, its message of diversity is heard loud and clear.
And have no fear, it doesn’t leave out its tongue-in-cheek humour either, poking fun at our New-Zealand neighbours and of course the vegans.
Take a look -
