Aussie car add. Taking the p1ss out of Aussies, our land, animals & our slang.

rolling on floor  rolling on floor  rolling on floor  rolling on floor  rolling on floor  rolling on floor  I think PMSL is appropriate here. happy
This is the most clever & funniest ad I think I have ever seen!

I'm not sure if you will all get this unless you know aussie slang & towns/places, but every person he names is actually a town here or aussie slang for something.

"Boomer rang" Boomer is both a nickname here, a roo (you may remember or know Ralph Harris' 6 white boomers xmas carol) & ...  a boomerang.
"I said "hey man" That is Hayman island up north.
"You're up bright n early". That's Brighton, a beach suburb.
"Top qual" means obviously top quality & also our quals.
"Where's bella at?" That is Ballarat.  A gold minning town here.
"Nulla's a bore" another nickname that also refers to the nullarbor planes.
"Cool & Gatta got one"  rolling on floor Thats coolangatta. A seaside town.

rolling on floor

I could go on....

It's VERY clever! The entire add has atleast two meanings at every word.
The ad man that did this needs a raise! thumbs up

That's really clever! I'm sure I missed some of the meaning but I think I got 95% of it - some advertising gurus are worth their weight in gold!

That's good - I love puns! Reminds me of an ancient song of my childhood, based on American states.
