    I’m also unsure about the Scott Morrison animal: rat or snake in the grass?

    The best TV advertising I recall was a Neil Diamond concert from Sydney which Channel 9 televised live back in 1976. During the entire show there were only two sponsored ads, one from each sponsor ie: Cadbury and Pioneer. Behold the impact of ‘less is more’ as I remember the brand names 38 years later.

    Due to their non-invasive advertising I was favourable towards the Pioneer brand & ultimately purchased their hi-fi. These days the more a product is advertised the more resolved I become never to buy it.

    I think Morrison would be better served with the image of a dung beetle.

    No – Dung beetles actually clean up the sh*t…

    Leave the beetle out of it.
