Indigenous language features in re-record of Men At Work's 'Down Under' for Tourism Australia campaign
Tourism Australia has launched a major new campaign to attract international tourists to the country that prominently features Indigenous Australian culture.
The 'Come and Say G'day' campaign stars an animated souvenir kangaroo called Ruby - voiced by Australian actress Rose Byrne - as its ambassador and features a remake of Men At Work classic 'Down Under' by King Stingray, who sing in both English and Yolŋu Matha, an indigenous language from Northeast Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.
Will Arnett, Hamish and Andy, and Australian comedian Nakkiah Lui - who is of Kamilaroi and Torres Strait Islander heritage - also feature in the campaign, which includes a short film directed by The Greatest Showman's Michael Gracey that debuted in New York this week.
