Australia has put in a strong bid to host the FIFA World Cup in 2018 or 2022, but the competition and the bribes and back room deals are strongly against us. One reason I can suggest that we won't win is that the result will be announced at 2 o'clock in the morning our time. There won't be too many around to cheer. Just from the bits I hear, the whole awarding of who gets to host the World Cup is corrupt as it could be, regardless of whether Australia wins.
Our final video submission has been described as crass, cringeworthy, tasteless and downright embarrassing. The video went for all the stereotypes but hey, it is not made for us. I expect foreign types will enjoy it. The stereotypes are what attracts people to Australia. Once here, I hope people discover there is a bit more to us.
The vid is particularly impressive as it managed to get a black man, a Muslim woman, an Asian heritage person and our indigenous, all within about 30 seconds.
Here is the vid.
