Bloody hell! UK censors risque Aussie ads

made the move to australia

Perhaps the UK government is scared of loosing to many of its citizens to the Aussie lifestyle ;)

I remember seeing these ads on the news when we went on our Rekkie to Perth (what seems all of a lifetime ago now).

But alas, the country that gave the world such risque comic acts as Benny Hill, the Two Ronnies and Little Britain has banned Australia’s new “bloody hell” tourism ads from television because they are just a little too rude.

Australian Tourism Minister Fran Bailey said Britain had banned the television ads, which end with a bikini-clad woman on a beach asking “so where the bloody hell are you?”, although the ads would still screen in cinemas and appear in print.

“The regulators have clearly misplaced their sense of humour — and this from a country that brought us Benny Hill, (the) Two Ronnies and Little Britain,” Bailey said in a statement on Thursday.

Personally, I think the ads are pretty cool. You can view the ads by Clicking Here. Let us know what you think by posting a comment below.

    Not sure but the company who the Aussie Tourist body choose to to produce this campaign appear to have used the right catchline to get the interest they were looking for.

    The additional interest caused by the use of the word ‘bloody’ must be worth Millions in free advertising to the Australian tourist board. :)
