A special time of year as we approach Australia Day.
For the past few years I anticipate the latest offering from the Meat and Livestock Association promoting the virtues of being Australian through eating more Lamb. These humorous, seriously tongue in cheek and self deprecating advertisements featuring Sam Kekovich often test the boundaries of political correctness making them the perfect fodder for social media.
This year sees Sam Kekovich who has spent 10 years as Lambassador make way for cricketing legend and icon Richie Benaud.
It appears that Richie Benaud will not Lamb alone this Australia Day.
And for 2015 we have another video doing the rounds on social media by Melbourne musician Terry Mann, a.k.a Coach Mumbai.
He has reworked Outkast’s catchy ‘Hey Ya’ tune with new, uniquely Australian lyrics into what he hopes will be the unofficial national anthem of ‘Straya’ (Australia).
The video features many of Australia’s famous people, places and all things quintessentially Australian.
