Ginger Catering Ad – What is the Song?

By kevn 9 July 2009 39

Anyone know what the song in the ginger catering ad is? I did a quick google on the lyrics and nothing came up.

Its a very annoying stuck in head song, but was interested to know if it was a ‘classic’ or an unknown aussie song or something they had created for the ad…

What’s Your opinion?

After avoiding the Australian viewing obsession that is ‘Masterchef’ for the past few months, I have been totally suckered in after watching my first episode last Sunday. I was going to write a post about Ginger Catering, but found that it has already been done. After a week of non-stop Ginger Catering ads, I still don’t know what the product iss … is it a shop, bar, restaurant or wedding venue? The ads fail if the product isn’t clear. The people are really quite homely looking – is this the image they are trying to project? I think the ads portray the venue as being quite ‘downmarket’ (the bloke’s stonewash jeans and plastic jacket thingy certainly don’t help in this regard). Surely the ad spots must be hugely expensive on such a popular show, so why not spend the extra money making the ads fantastic? I wouldn’t go there, based purely on these ads as I find them to be the most insufferable aspect of masterchef.

I bet next time that woman wears a satin nighty out on the town, she’ll suck her guts in, or wear some heavy-duty Foundation Garments.

I think any ad shown in such repetition is going to get on people’s wicks pretty quickly and doubt replacing the main characters with a vacant blonde in a push-up bra and some guy who looks like Brad Pitt would make these ads any more palatable. I actually give them credit for using “real” people.

The expression of “tired resignation” on the guy’s face just before he proposes still cracks me up though.

I thought the same thing about the Nescafe ads, but didn’t those go on for a series, not just two? I think the first one should have ended with the guy walking to the girl with the cocktails, but asking her if she could introduce him to her friend.

There was a bit in yesterday’s Canberra Times about those ads. Apparently the choice of hair colour in the actors wasn’t deliberate – they were “just the best people for the job”.

I’m thinking the intention was to rip off that notorious recurring Nescafe ad from years ago, wherein a rather murderous looking lady moves to a country town and bewitches one of the local blokes over bad instant coffee. At least the subtext for those ads was funny – the Ginger Room ads are just cringeworthy.

So glad to see others can’t stand these ads. And not just dislike, they really irritate. Sorry AndyC, maybe they do have clever bits in them, but the annoyingness overwhems

So, the brand’s entire identity revolves around being run by daywalkers?
(IE: not product quality)

…From a comment a few spots above, it sounds like the much-vaunted Ginger Room is as underwhelming as Cafe in the House…

Haven’t been to Cafe in the House for a while, but myself and five others enjoyed a very good meal at the Ginger Room last night. The service was very good too.

Also, everyone is commenting on the her weight, what about the guy? Ack.

Hehe, since he’s a friend of mine, would you like me to pass that assessment on for you? 😉

To be fair, it’s not him so much as the role he has unfortunately been cast in, I can only imagine the direction they were getting…

ant 10:03 pm 09 Jul 09

They have all these “smart elements” in them that everyone totally missed, as they were too busy hating their clumsy nature.

Bearcage has gone to the dogs, the mob who used to do the Magnet Mart ads are poised to take over.

I would also like to stick up for the adds a little bit. I think they have some smart elemets to them. Did you notice that all the features females in the adds have ginger hair? The shop that is featured in the first of the series of adds has signs up on the wall advertising ginger bread. And there is a predominance of the colour red / ginger throught the series of adds. Or maybe I’m imagining things…

Good lord… I’ve been so busy loathing those ads that I hadn’t noticed. Now I hate them even more. Oh, and +1 to the nasty plastic biker jacket comment.

What would Matt Preston say?

I reckon Matt Preston would say “Thank you for paying to run these adds in my tv show, and making me rich(er)”. The only time I’ve seen the adds is when Master Chef is on.

Who chose the plastic jacket he wears in the final shot when he carries the drinks oz? Probably the worst ads on TV and a complete waste of money – people may talk about GC more but only to swap stories about the sheer arrogance of their staff.

If they can’t tell a breakfast mushroom from a lunch mushroom, there’s no hope for them. What would Matt Preston say?

I think you need to start building a bridge in regards to the mushrooms.

As for the ads – terrible.

At the risk of sounding uneducated,aside from the time of day that it’s picked / cooked / eaten what is the difference between a breakfast and a lunch mushroom ?

I’m just glad someone asked.. (runs back to corner)
