Gimma me a 'kworda pownda' and a 'lar tay'

DDB Sydney out-of-home campaign reflects the local dialect in Australia.

Not satisfed with calling itself Macca's in Australia, McDonald's is running a campaign that goes further into the idiosyncracies of 'strayan' language.

It took Ad Nut a fair bit of time to figure out what a "lar tay" might be, which perhaps indicates Ad Nut needs one about now.

Ad Nut was also tempted to make a gross joke about the lead singer of the Rolling Stones and the pronunciation of McNuggets, but will refrain. You're welcome.
