    poor canadian bigots…wait ’till they see the isaac mizrahi ads! gotta love target, even with their flaws.

    It just seems weird they’d use a male British media personality to sell bras to women in Australia lol

    I prefer the term “gazongas” when speaking slang about ladies breastacles. Or is it breasticles? Maybe when they’re cold, I dunno. Not my territory anyway.

    To clarify, Target Australia is not related to Target USA. They’re a separate company and they just license the logo from Target USA.

    Phew! Thank god someone is dealing with the relevant issues of the day! I was very nearly offended!

    Well, they have their publicity now, don’t they.

    I second why did they import this Brit dude to do Target ads in Australia? Slang humor often doesn’t travel well.

    Jay: he’s rumored to be involved with Russell Tovey. Google him if you’ve never heard of him. Russell is pure hotness too.

    I think the point here is that gay men are allowed to get away with saying sexist things about women.because of political correctness.

    I saw NOTHING wrong with that ad…heck Victoria secret ads are wayyyy more sexual

    The crazy thing is, if he wanted to comment on them, the common terms here are funbags, boobs or tits. Bangers is definitely a term used for sausages here, which raises confusion in the ads…

    Apparently we don’t have any talent in Australia,so they import celebs. Eric Stonestreet does ads for Big W which is similar to Target.All our “talent” shows have imported judges.

  13. Dave says

    We obviously do not have that much talent here in OZ. We have the str8 guy, who plays gay on Modern Family, flogging Big W (Discount store)and British rockers Status Quo flogging a supermarket chain. Gok is the pick of the bunch though.

    Hey, NORTHALABAMA! Waddya mean Canadian bigots? The controversy is taking place in Australia, with Australian bigots voicing their displeasure. Canadian bigots live in Canada. You know that Canada & Australia are two different countries, with the entire Pacific Ocean in between, don’t you? Or didn’t you have geography classes at school in NORTHALABAMA? Did you have schools in NORTHALABAMA?

    Bangers is a term for sausages in Britain too – “Bangers and Mash” being a good old British dish of sausages with mashed potatoes. Maybe bangers for breasts is a new one…

    as an australian i can’t help but feel out of touch whenever australian slang gets used, i didn’t even know what bonza meant until a few years ago.

    as for goks nationality, is it really so unusual to have a “foreigner” sell something to us? george clooney sells coffee in asia etc
