Ad Nut
Sep 26, 2019

Breaking big news demands good mobile coverage

THE WORK: ‘Time for a chat’, for Telstra by The Monkeys Sydney.

Ad Nut's not crying, you're crying.

This manipulative and predictable—but no less moving—film for Telstra by The Monkeys was directed by Brian Aldrich from Finch, and will run on TV and in cinemas, including during the AFL and NRL 2019 Grand Final.

Ad Nut is heartened that a gay love story will air during the footie and rugby finals, and it's not  something people will comment on or find odd. In fact, creatures younger than Ad Nut may not even remember a time when such a thing would have caused a stir. Progress, it's a beautiful thing.

No, Ad Nut is not crying again, you're crying again.
