    That Foster's Advert

    Everyone else in The UK must surely know what I'm on about...

    Plane flies on. Capsule hits beach and sprays sand all over two men standing on rail. Cans of rusty lager then fall out.
    Men pause for maybe 5 seconds; one then comments in Australian accent "can't blame them"; other responds "nah".
    Australian narrator interludes leerily "reckon if it ain't The Amber Nectar... don't even bother"
    NNYYEEUUAAWW, bosch -
    "- that'll be the 7:35 from Dubbo..."
    "... yeap"

    What I want to know is, is the thing screened anywhere else (Norway, for example)

    Fosters doesn't get advertised that much in Australia, well...Queensland anyway, except for the odd Formula One car, although it is sold in almost every bottleshop. It is one of my favourite beers.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I can't remember the last time a Foster beer ad has been shown.

    I still smile lightly every time... even at the 50th or so showing...
    The sheer concept of a load of substandard beer being dumped on a daily schedule... class...
