Basically, it started years ago as an annual comic advert to promote Australian lamb.
Paid for by meat-producers. 

It always came out just before the 'Australia Day' public holiday on which many Aussies have 'barbies' which usually featured bloody great steaks, sausages, prawns - and, just about anything except lamb. 
(But heaps of beer).

As someone else said, in recent times some of our indigenous folk have denigrated the whole thing, calling it "Invasion Day". 

In deference, I reckon the producers of this one have compromised pretty well.
The main actors right from the beginning are indigenous - and it then goes on to emphasize our fairly-successful multicultural history - without once mentioning the dreaded "Australia Day".

If one reads the comments after the clip (on Alan's link), there are a few 'whinging Poms' claiming that not enough emphasis was focused on our British heritage. 

Oh well, can't please 'em all  smile

I have spent about the last 60 years of my life honing my whinging skills to the peak of perfection. I assumed it was an attribute that would guarantee a free pass into Australia.

Are you now insinuating that I have wasted my time?

"the word Indigenous is ALWAYS written with a capital letter I in deference"


Not by me, mate. It is an adjective - not a proper noun, a name or a title.

I have enormous respect for our indigenous people - and over the years have spent much time as a volunteer in defence of aboriginal causes.

First I've heard of any demands to change English grammar or usage though.

WE differ - so it follows that I don't understand ?
Ever wonder if the boot just might be on the other foot ?

Not going to get into a pissing contest about which of us knows more about Australian history - although I'm pretty bloody sure I'd be safe  smile

As for the techno-stuff, so what ?
One can use a big "I" or a little "i" with a biro, a pencil a keyboard - or a "thumbnail dipped in tar"
