Libs sink the boot in

By teepee 18 September 2008 21

I saw this election ad on TV tonight – quite a hoot. Funniest so far (maybe the only funny TV ad of the election campaign?) . I particularly like the angry grunt when the boot sinks in.

I wonder if Stanhope will call foul on this? And the question is when will Captain cranky strike back with some Labor ads? I’ve heard their radio one heaps, but I thought the Labor Club might dig in the pocket to sponsor a bit of TV?

A tug named Tyball (cousin to the skirt)
Sprags ’em an’ makes a start to sling off dirt.
Nex’ minnit there’s a reel ole ding-dong go -—
‘Arf round or so.
Mick Curio, ‘e gets it in the neck,
“Ar rats!” ‘e sez, an’ passes in ‘is check.

Quite natchril, Romeo gits wet as ‘ell.
“It’s me or you!” ‘e ‘owls, an’ wiv a yell,
Plunks Tyball through the gizzard wiv ‘is sword,
‘Ow I ongcored!
“Put in the boot!” I sez. “Put in the boot!”
“‘Ush!” sez Doreen … “Shame!” sez some silly coot.

Actually it’s quite clever if you think about it. All they need is something to stick in people’s minds and people will remember him… worked with Kevin07, one can only hope Zed doesn’t end up being krudd.

It’s getting stupid.

You know, the internet has search facilities these days.

It seems relatively straight forward so I’ll make one tonight and post it here.

Me no speakee this acronym language … Please explain jakeee

I think the first five seconds would be perfect for a YTMND page.

…Anyone here know how to do that?

whistle 1:47 pm 18 Sep 08

That’s pretty funny. I like the first five seconds. They should run that part of the ad on a repeating loop and ditch the rest.

First the ‘Vote for Morgo’ as in ‘Vote for Pedro’ t-shirts and now lampooning Stanho as a demented football/ventriloquist dummy.

Morgo – I’ll never vote for you (I live in the wrong electorate for starters) but I like your style. Imagine what you could come up if you had the resources of a sitting MLA?

Reach for the stars, son!

I thought it was pretty funny, and quite harmless when it comes to political ads.

mutley 10:25 am 18 Sep 08

I don’t think they quite captured the essence of the “angry voice”, but otherwise very amusing.

Doszpot-> despot, or Doszpot -> Tosspot.

Take your pick, but I know which one I prefer.

Duke 9:33 am 18 Sep 08

Doszpot is worryingly close to Despot – tread carefully Steve.

This ad sucks, and regardless of who I’m likely to vote for, I’d not vote for any party with suck schoolyard campaigns like that – on pure principal.

Jacqui Myers will get you higher?

Skidbladnir 9:04 am 18 Sep 08

Jacqui Myers was doing an ad with “Jac lives here” as a slogan.

So not only has she got mad skills at SimCity, but is keeping in touch with the young people and their alcoholic ways

niftydog 8:43 am 18 Sep 08

Well… I’m convinced!

Thumper 8:42 am 18 Sep 08

Hahahahahahaha 😉

Have some fun with Vicki Dunne!

Oh, dear God…. I read it, and now I can’t un-read it.

Thumper 8:34 am 18 Sep 08

Have some fun with Vicki Dunne!

Nah, no, no, don’t go there 😉
