Wander Down Under

by Syd Briscoe

Kit Kat: “GPS” - 60s

Anyone who remembers the days of windscreen-mounted, satellite-losing, buggy GPS units will find this amusing Aussie ad from Kit Kat all too relatable. A pair of rugged frontiersmen get thoroughly lost while transporting a convict to jail, though not for lack of trying to find their way.

The premise is ably realised by director Dave Wood, who accompanies every wrong turn and frustrated sigh with ironically rousing music and increasingly hapless attempts from the map reader to insist that they're not lost. Lovely performances (and a well-timed cyclist gag) round off this dusty comedy of errors.

Cinematographer: Germain McMicking
