Nova 969, a Sydney radio station, is promoting the breakfast team, Merrick, Dools and Ricki-Lee (Merrick Watts, Scott Dooley and Ricki-Lee Coulter), with a set of television commercials featuring weirdly funny combinations. A woman with balloon hands performs a vasectomy. Oh come on! A tennis player who’s half cow and half man complains to the referee. “Are you lactose intolerant or something?!!!” And a pair of twins cavort with a barbecue cooking cannibal. Let’s hope Merrick, Dools and Ricki-Lee have an alternative approach to humour! The Cowman ad led viewers to a spoof product site, Cowman Milk.
