The ambitious plan to take Australia to the Super Bowl began over dinner at a Sydney pizzeria this time last year — but could serve tourism operators close to $6 billion in US travel business by 2020.
The mock Crocodile Dundee trailer — teased to viewers before the NFL blockbuster — proved to be the stunning launch of Tourism Australia’s biggest single advertising campaign into America since Paul Hogan fronted the Come Say G’Day ads over 30 years ago.
An all-star cast of Australia’s most popular showbiz exports — lead by Thor star Chris Hemsworth and featuring cameos by Oscar nominee Margot Robbie and Hugh Jackman — featured in the 60-second spot, which aired to an estimated audience of 110 million people during the Super Bowl showdown between New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
Hemsworth, a Tourism Australia ambassador, will also feature in the rollout of an extended $36 million marketing campaign, alongside actor Danny McBride who appeared in the commercial as Mick Dundee’s long lost son. Take a look at the trailer below:
A new trailer for Tourism Australia’s Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home made its way online today. While this is a ‘fake’ movie trailer, we couldn’t help but wish it was real!
Showcasing some of Australia’s biggest exported talent (Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Liam Hemsworth, Ruby Rose and Hugh Jackman to name a few), the full trailer will appear during the Super Bowl next month.
When the first trailer for Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home appeared online, the Internet’s collective shock was palpable.
Could Danny McBride really have filmed an entire Crocodile Dundee sequel about the iconic Australian hero’s son without seemingly anyone finding out? And how could Thor actor Chris Hemsworth possibly sign onto a project without a million reports emerging?
The answer, of course, is that Dundee is not a real movie. The trailer is a spoof, part of the marketing campaign for Tourism Australia, the full advert for which will appear during the Super Bowl next month.
Last week, fans were taken by surprise by Dundee, the mysterious sequel/spinoff to the Crocodile Dundee franchise starring none other than comedy superstar Danny McBride. While people are still speculating about whether the project, produced by Rimfire Films (the company behind the first two Dundee movies) is an actual film or merely a lavish Super Bowl spot, it has been revealed that Australian actor, Chris Hemsworth will play Wally Jr., the son of Dundee’s business partner Walter “Wally” Reilly as played by John Meillon in the first two films.
