Learned to love Foxtel’s Happy EOYFS ad by Three Drunk Monkeys yet? Got a nagging feeling it reminds you of a king who unwittingly killed his father and married his mother? Then you’re not alone.

  6. I love a good mashup! This one is particularly clever for recognizing satirical potential; an acronym that sounds like “Oedipus” and one of the things Oedipus Rex is famous for (i.e. incest) often leading to Down Syndrome (i.e. “low I.Q.).
