CU in the NT

It seems the good folk at NT Tourism  (SEE UPDATE BELOW) someone has taken a leaf from the tongue-in-cheek stylings of Darwin newspaper the NT News (which brought you headlines like “Why I stuck a cracker up my clacker”) for its new range of merchandise.cu-in-the-nt-singlets

That is a range of t-shirts and singlets and bumper stickers which simply say CU [in the] NT…

See what they did there?screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-9-34-40-am
According to the website NTOfficial.com the product range is there “so you can show your love for the top end and everything within”.

And what screams Northern Territory more than a singlet with a croc on it? Except one with a barramundi, bird or kangaroo, of course.

Update 1.30pm: Tourism NT has issued the following statement: 

Tourism NT has no connection and is no way affiliated with the website or Facebook page of NTOfficial.com or any of their promotions.

Which begs the question of just who is behind the promotions, and whether Tourism NT is happy with the appropriation of their logo. More on these soon…
