Kim Kardashian and Sharon Strzelecki star in Uber Eats’ latest local campaign

Magda Szubanski has reprised her iconic role as Sharon Strzelecki, an overly-enthusiastic netballer with a thick Australian accent, in Uber Eats’ latest iteration of its ‘Tonight I’ll be eating’ campaign.

Strzelecki is on the couch in her netball uniform revealing her dinner selection to her friend, Kim. Moments later, however, it is revealed that the ‘Kim’ she is speaking to is not Gina Riley’s Kim Day from the Kath and Kim series – but US reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West.

Strzelecki decides she will eat pesto gnocchi and garlic bread to keep her “carbed up”, while Kardashian-West will be eating a “chicken schnitty with chips and chicken salt”.

The duo then disagree over the pronunciation of ‘nice’ (or ‘noice’) and various other rhyming words.

The Tonight I’ll Be Eating campaign kicked off locally two years ago, and featured identities such as Sophie Monk, Beau Ryan, Ryan Maloney, Naomi Watts and Boy George.

Another iteration of the campaign featured Rebel Wilson, Ruby Rose, Lee Lin Chin and Ray Martin.

Throughout the Australian Open’s first outing on Nine, various tennis stars, umpires, cameramen and ground-staff also featured in a tennis version of the campaign.

Most recently, Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham and Anh Do formed a band, ‘Barnesy, Farnsy and Anhsy’, for the campaign.

Special Group has been behind the campaign thus far.
