Default The Australia Day ad too rude for Aussie TV - video

I don't know why this would be too rude for tv. I find it entertaining. I guess Australia is a very conservative country? What is Australia day anyone?

This television advert for Dick Smith food products was meant to be screened on Australia's national day, but was banned from its allotted time slot after being deemed too offensive. The ad champions Australian food and uses 'dick' jokes, including an elderly lady saying 'there's only one dick I'll be eating on Australia day'

That's some irony for ya. Make an ad about how much you love Australia, then the Australian government bans it.

The KFC commercial didn't look racist to me.
