Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham and Anh Do form a band in the latest ‘Tonight I’ll be eating’ campaign from Uber Eats

Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham and Anh Do have come together as a new rock band, ‘Barnesy, Farnsy and Anhsy’, for the latest instalment of Uber Eats’ ‘Tonight I’ll be eating’ campaign.

The ad shows the trio take the stage for soundcheck, expressing what they will be ordering from Uber Eats that night.

The ‘Tonight I’ll be eating’ campaign first launched in 2017, from Special Group, with a range of Australian celebrities stating what they will be ordering from Uber Eats. The campaign expanded in 2018, bringing in duos such as Ray Martin and Lee Lin Chin, and Hamish and Andy with Lleyton Hewitt, alongside partnerships with franchise restaurants including McDonald’s.

At the start of this year, Uber eats launched an integration with the Australian Open, making ads that appeared like live shots of the tennis, that were interrupted by the delivery of players’ food.

Regional general manager for Uber Eats ANZ, Jodie Auster, said: “The latest creative celebrates iconic and unexpected Australian combinations. Our choice of talent reflects the broad demographic of Uber Eats users and their diverse interests.”

Special Group managing director, Cade Heyde, said in a statement: “We’re beyond thrilled that the likes of John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes and Anh Do have now joined the ranks of Uber Eats.

“We’re proud that being in this campaign is now a bit of a mark that you’re a true part of Aussie culture for celebrities in this country.”

In some comical statements from Barnes and Farnham, they both express reservations about bringing Do in to the band.

“He’s an inept drummer but we got him in the band because Uber wanted him in the band so that’s why he is there,” Farnham said of Do.

Barnes added: “I thought it was never going to work. When I was a young fella and John first released Sadie, from the time he was a young popstar right up to today, he is one of the best singers I’ve ever heard.”

The latest version of the campaign will be broadcast on television, online and OOH.
