>Yup. I know who I’m voting for

>According to today’s Sydney Morning Herald:

“The ABC has rejected pleas from the Greens to be allowed to broadcast a striking yet fake election advertisement that was created for the broadcaster.

The party confirmed they want to use an advertisement created by agency Republic of Everyone that featured on the Gruen Nation last night.

But the ABC will not allow it be used during the campaign, stating it owns the rights and the “ABC can’t provide one side’s advertising”.”

for my overseas friends:
we have a federal election in just over a week
this is NOT a paid political ad – it’s actually from a satirical show on advertising and media [ The Gruen Nation ] that aired last night.

Edit:
Originally I had the YouTube footage embedded but for some reason it was not showing the full screen. You can access it direct on YouTube through the link above. Sorry ’bout that, but it’s well worth a watch.
