Tourism Australia’s latest large-scale marketing campaign has been a huge hit, stunning audiences with an all-star lineup. The fake movie trailer “Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home” first aired at the Super Bowl in February, featuring Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride.
Fans of the cult 1980s blockbuster Crocodile Dundee were enthused for a sequel before it was revealed that the entire trailer was a good-natured hoax. In actual fact, it was a tourism ad for Australia. Fans, however, are still calling for the fake movie to be made, with additional extended ‘trailers’ (advertisements) being released, showcasing Australia’s biggest names in showbiz including Hugh Jackman, Liam Hemsworth, Margot Robbie and Russell Crowe.
If they eve did, you can guarantee it would pack more people into the cinema than we could fit on a whole schedule of Uluru flights!
American tourists: Australia wants you!
The second stage of Tourism Australia’s Dundee campaign is now in full swing with a tongue-in-cheek invitation for an American audience to visit the ‘set’ of Dundee, the set being Australia’s sweeping landscape and most iconic landmarks. And Tourism Australia has collected the third Hemsworth brother, Luke Hemsworth, to act as tourist’s official behind-the-scenes guide. The running joke is that Australia is actually one big movie set for Dundee, and the $36 million campaign has already reached 9 billion people.
