Where the fucking hell are yous!

Excellent! Tourism Australia has objected to Daniel Ilic's spoof of their "Where the bloody hell are you?" Ad. It's Front Page on the Sydney Morning Herald site - "A comedy writer has been forced to take down an online spoof of the controversial "where the bloody hell are you" TV ad after legal threats.

Dan Ilic, 24, produced a parody of the ad, changing the jingle to "Where the f---ing hell are you?" and inserting negative images of Australian life.

The video was viewed about 30,000 times on video website youtube.com. However, Mr Ilac removed it from his website, Downwind Media, after complaints from Tourism Australia, which last week described the ad as "mean spirited and humourless".

YouTube have taken it down but you can see it here at Ad-Rag

...and here is the original Australian Tourism Ad.

More on this unbelievable display of wowserism from the dopes at Tourism Australia here at the Sinnie Herald

Thanks to ad-rag for the original tip!
