Australia's Don't Be a Dickhead Ad

Every Time Australians Drive and Talk, Two Redheads Get It On

This very real ad by the Australian government features two people in bed, then says, "Don't Be a Dickhead" by driving and talking on cell phones. I get it, I thought. The message is: you wouldn't talk or text while getting it on, so why would you do it while driving? Wrong.

The ad says every time someone drives and talks or doesn't wear their seat belts (safety last!), two redheads (or "gingers") get it on. Get it? It's like It's a Wonderful Life, but a terrible ad!

I haven;t seen this ad on the tv and I'm in Aus, so I dunno whats up with this. :S Usually we're a load more tolerant than this.

I 'get' the kind of humour that this ad is trying to portray, but it's not funny, it's really not.

I know they're trying to be hip and funny, but I don't think it's a good idea to perpetuate this kind of hatred (when it is, for some reason, real hatred). Didn't they learn anything from South Park?

Um. That's pretty terrible. I simply don't understand redhead prejudice. Like "Kick a Ginger Day"... I mean, seriously, what the fuck?
