I mean, who wouldn’t want to see Jesus and Zeus share a meal over some delicious Australian Lamb? It’s the ultimate in religious harmony and a testament to the unifying power of food.
And let’s not forget the aliens. What better way to showcase the quality of Australian Lamb than by serving it to beings from another planet? Maybe it’ll even encourage them to visit and sample some of the delicious lamb themselves.
The ad is a true masterpiece of satire, poking fun at the idea of using food to bring together people of different backgrounds and beliefs. But, hey, if it works for lamb, maybe we should start serving it at peace summits and UN meetings?
L Ron mentioning he gave up dinner with Tom Cruise is also a reference to one of their previous adverts, where a caller into a radio show won a dinner with Cruise, only to say “wait, Sunday? Nah, sorry. Mum’s cooking a lamb roast”.
