Thoughts on Cheese by Ben
So there’s this commercial on TV. You may have seen it, probably by accident, because who the hell watches ads by choice?
Anyway, so you see a procession of people in country towns, standing near signs showing the name of the town they are in. They say things like this:
“Curtin is not famous for curtains.”
“Broome is not famous for brooms.”
“Cardigan is not famous for cardigans.”
THEN you see a guy standing in the town of Bega, holding some cheese, and HE says this:
“But Bega is famous for Bega.”
To which the only sensible response is, no it’s fucking not. Bega is famous for CHEESE. Oh sure, the cheese is CALLED Bega, but that’s because that’s where it’s MADE.
To illustrate my very angry point, if you made cheese in Curtin, you could call it Curtin Cheese and make a commercial saying “Curtin is famous for Curtin”.
If you made flamenco guitars in Broome, you could call them Broome Guitars and make a commercial saying “Broome is famous for Broomes”.
If you made vibrators in Cardigan, you could…
You get my point? The Bega ads are FUCKED. I am SICK OF THEM. They are dishonest and repellent. Boycott Bega RIGHT NOW to teach them a lesson for making these bullshit ads.
