Bunch of Qantas

projct c bombNot since a British newsreader stumbled over the “Kent countryside” has there been quite such a spectacular newsreading C-bomb slip-up.

So Dr Mumbo doffs his cap to The Project’s Carrie Bickmore who has delivered a spectacular new way of saying “Qantas customers”.

Co-host Charlie Pickering was quite right: YouTube awaits.

Dr Mumbo also fears for Qantas: The next time there’s a stoppage, the new nickname may just stick.

  4. I’d make her CEO, she speaks the truth, and you can understand what she is saying.

  22. What the hell is a ‘quostomer’? The other part of the equation was about the CEO wasn’t it?

  28. That wasn’t someone filming the TV with their phone just randomly – if you see at the start, that’s a Tivo player control. They had recorded it on Tivo then went back and recorded just that bit on their phone.

  34. Let’s just hope that rumours of a merger between Qantas and Aer Lingus never surface. Or Carrie may be in real strife.

  36. Did anyone notice that “Virgin are targeting the corporate route”?

    Another purposeful play on words?

  40. of course it’s a publicity stunt !

    as per Pickerings suggestion after the “slip up” the footage has been uploaded to youtube with in excess of 200,000 hits so far. the general tone of comments is about 70% saying it was obviously an accident and verifying their analysis because “carrie is really nice” and “she looked embarrassed”.

    The other 30% point out that this one brief (17secs) news item managed to squeeze in “heating up, virgin, cunt, root and bottom”.

    Interestingly, the Fin Review pointed out the day before that Channel Ten’s ratings (and advertising revenue) have been in freefall for most of this year.

  42. Copyright.A simple solution to a huge problem…..Anyway I think if they stopped making DVD’s and released everything on BluRay and make everything even new releases around $10..00 they just might solve the problem as it would not be worth peoples time to copy a Bluray and at that price even a standard DVD would be worth it. If the film companies are serious about combatting piracy and as a film maker myself I try to stop it on my own productions but it is rife around the country and if film studios did not pay stupid sums to so called stars, they would not have to make so much money..but even so if they had cheaper prices, they would sell more.
