Canberra Milk Kid?

By iCanberran 30 July 2008 47

On the TV, on the radio in the car, I keep hearing “Ah ah ah ah-I’m, a Canberra milk kid”.

Am I the only one growing tired of this marketing tune flooding the airwaves?

It isn’t even appropriate anymore.

The milk isn’t from Canberra.

What’s Your opinion?

A couple of more recent updates from Mark Webber and Jezza!

Guess those who go for the cheapest don’t give a stuff about the farmers – they have to live as well. Buying Coles or similar is a vote for the company that screws the producer.
If Canberra is free range milk then it will be from better managed herds and should have more nutrients in it.
Pay for what you get but realise you get what you pay for.

people who don’t like radio or TV ads can turn the radio or TV off or leave the room; I know some people struggle with sorting things out for themselves but this one is fairly easy. …and there are a lot worse ads than “ah, ah ah ah ah’m a Canberra milk kid”.

The Canberra milk factory is in Kingston ACT, though we don’t have cows roaming around the streets. You have to go to Tingha to see that.

We love the way we can buy a three litre bottle of Coles own brand milk for $3.20 or shell out an extra $2.00 plus for the same size bottle of Canberra Milk. Their ads are pitched not just to the parochial, but idiots as well.

I’m happy to pay the extra $2 since Canberra Milk apparently uses free-range cows.

You= tosser, obviously.

There is nothing like a nice, icy-cold glass of milk with a slice of vegemite toast. *sigh*

I would like to support the local producer, but the product is just too expensive compared with the Woolies brand. We do always purchase free range eggs, though, despite the extra cost.

I haven’t seen the ad myself, as I don’t watch much tv, but I would think the absence of any nagging from my children to buy Canberra milk must be a pretty sad indicator for the marketing people.
