Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Ad wars - Australia vs UK

A few weeks ago, the Gruen Transfer asked some Australian advertising agencies to come up with a television advertisement to convince the IOC to bring the Olympic Games back to Sydney. This was the result.

Now Theo has dug up what appears to be an attempt to hit back.

(BTW: At the risk of being a wet blanket, Theo's ad is just a little loose with the facts - although Kevin's People Smuggling Assistance Scheme looks likely to be far more deadly to people attempting to visit Australia this year.)

UPDATE: Graeme in comments sets me straight.

I'm pretty sure that Theo's add is from an earlier episode of the Gruen Transfer.
