Back in June we cast our eye on Southern Cross Ten’s “The Workers” and their exhortations for children to go to bed.
Elizabeth from The Workers has this week been in touch to express her disappointment with us all:
From: Elizabeth Gaunt
Subject: The Workers Goodnight by MWF
I really hope you can do the right thing. My name is Elizabeth Gaunt and I’m one of the members of the group The Workers.
I have noticed the story and video of the television commercial I am in and the proceeding comments, and I have to say I’m so saddened by what MWF and followers have said about us. We are creepy, or pedophiles, or going to ‘rape’ children. We are loving parents, professionals and performers who are just having a go at producing some new content in television. I’m disgusted by the comments and would ask that you please look at removing the post and all it’s comments as we are all highly embarrassed by them.
We have a wonderful new childrens show on southern cross ten running Monday to Friday at 8.30am. Perhaps you could write some positive things about us instead?
I really hope you can understand we are just normal people having a go, and would appreciate the opportunity to be respected for it on a blog like this.
(We’re unsure if Elizabeth is the ballerina or the nurse)
Listening to the above video here in The Eagle’s Nest we did wonder if it wasn’t effective at getting children to go to bed simply to escape the glass shattering racket.
If, on the other hand, you’re a fan there is a YouTube channel to rejoice in.
