Bigpond on Australia Day
Telstra Bigpond continues the Father and Son series with a newly released television advertisement linking the broadband with education, Australia Day, cricket and tennis. The TV ad is placed in the setting of a parent/teacher/student interview. “Here’s an example of what I’m talking about”, says the teacher. “What does January 26 mean to Australians? Everyone gets a day off to watch cricket.” The father, known for his rabbits explanation for the Wall of China, has the final word as he escorts his son out of the building.
