Australian Cultural Literacy

What better way to understand culture than through the prism of mass marketing? 🙂

Well, there are five – what ought I have chosen?

PS: Yes, the decore ad has no relevance to Australian cultural literacy whatsoever, other than as an object of mockery and derision, but seriously, who can forget it? Also, the Toyota ad is presented not so much as a cultural symbol, but simply because of the effect it had upon the lexicon…

PPS: Never got into Louis the fly, so stop messaging me about it. Not putting it up.
