Telling a joke and making people laugh is hugely dependant on timing. Just ask any stand up comedian. A commercial has the best chance of being funny if the joke it contains can live its natural life and not appear contrived or artificially manipulated.
What make us love this commercial is its larrikin absurdy and wonderful casting. It is truly the essence of Australia.
Another secret to great comedic success is capturing and embellishing a moments of real human behaviour, people laugh because they recognize themselves in what they’re watching.
Made in 2001 by Roger Tomkins it proves that great comedy is timeless.
