GALLERY 07: Spec spot - Australian Story

The Glue Society is a British freelance copywriting/directing collective - Jonathan Kneebone and Gary Freedman - who have been living in Australia for the past decade. The pair have immersed themselves in the local culture but have also been able to take a step back to view the nation's idiosyncracies. These are often pastiched in their work and Australian Story is perhaps the clearest example. A spoof of soaps, such as Neighbours, features some brilliant over-the-top acting. But the hilarity doesn't stop there and clever editing produces a crazy twist.
