Broadsheet Trailer Park: Dundee, The Son Of A Legend Returns Home

What You May Need To Know

1. I went through a whole denial-anger-acceptance thing watching this. First I was horrified, thinking my god, how could “They” possibly deem to sully a milestone of Antipodean culture like Crocodile Dundee (1984) by knocking out a snarky, decades-overdue sequel.

2.
Then I thought, hang on a second, it’s Crocodile Dundee not The Godfather (1972). Who cares, let them do what they want.

3. THEN I thought, holy chozzwozza, this looks quite funny, and pretty great. Look at that cast! Russell Crowe hamming it up as a Murdoch-esque super villain? Sold. But does it look at little TOO good?

4. THEN I read up on it, and realised it’s not a film at all; it’s actually an extremely well-made viral advert for Tourism Australia, part of a campaign running with this weekend’s Super Bowl.

Doug’s verdict: Well played, everyone.

Release date: n/a

    ah now
    be fair Tourism Oz and Qantas didn’t miss out on the original Dundee either
    and Mick Hogan himself was so stranger to product placement since the 70s

    but yeah
    tis a brilliant ad

    The Wallabies coming together like that
    fair play

      imagine the Hemsworths, all of them, for buff
      Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Margot Robbie, Rebel Wilson, Cate Blanchette etc knocking about the pub
      Kylie and Helen Reddy doing the sing song
      and Hugh Jackman doing everything from Dancing around the fire, fighting Kangaroos to Driving the Ute

      Except there is. I had to look her up tbf but Jessica Tauboy there; she is of indigenous parentage and one of Australia’s biggest pop stars. Also some of the extras.

      Back in yer box.
