“Cheating at sport, we can’t even hang on to a Prime Minister, ” he says as workers hurriedly update the PM portrait in the background. The solution to our national malaise? “We finally make New Zealand part of us!”
But will the plan succeed, especially since “they still haven’t forgiven us for the whole underarm thing”.
Watch the Australia Day lamb ad to find out.
