Cathy Freeman ad – needs more big red hand

Much as Dr Mumbo loves the Coles Cathy Freeman Olympics ad, he feels that this version is a little more on brand.

Hat-tip: Rach

And this version takes the idea that Cathy Freeman is portrayed as a ghost one step further.

  6. If Coles were supporting Aussies, they wouldnt be selling milk for $2!
    Maybe they should concentrate on the Farmers first.

  8. The first one is definitely more on-brand. I almost didn’t recognise it as a Coles ad without large, intrusive red fingers jabbing everywhere, and no annoyingly-catchy jingle??

    Glad I’m not the only person who felt that Cathy Freeman’s appearance in the ad made her look like a ghost!!!

    It’s all just a bit strange.
