19 Unforgettable Australian Commercials from the ’90s

Aussie Australian Commercials Ads 90s 1990s

When you think of iconic Australian commercials, what comes to mind? “Not happy, Jan!” by Yellow Pages?  It’s hard to forget the creepy Smith’s Chips Gobbledok which was a cross between a Gremlin and ALF. Mortein’s Louie the Fly was practically an Aussie mascot (until they got rid of him – RIP Louie!). How about our latest advertising gem – the Rhonda and Ketut story by AAMI? Maybe it’s the ones with the catchy jingles that stick with you. Like the “My Dad picks the fruit” song by Cottee’s Cordial, “You ought to be congratulated” by Meadow Lea, “Make those bodies sing” for Australian Bananas, “Good on ya, Mum” by Tip Top or Banana Boat. But what about Aussie ads specifically from the ’90s? Check out our list of 19 unforgettable Australian commercials from the ’90s and see how many you remember!

Keegan Allen Oz Comic Con

 

After seven (LONG) years of twists, turns, plot holes and ridiculous storylines, Pretty Little Liars has ended and everyone’s life is now a bit more empty because of it. Luckily, before the post-PLL funk could really set in, Keegan Allen, who plays Toby Cavanaugh, visited the land down under to attend Oz Comic Con 2017 (July 1-2) in Melbourne, Australia. While I wasn’t a huge fan of Tobias while watching PLL, Keegan Allen is such a cool guy and listening to him answer fan questions made me appreciate not only the actor but the character he played. Here are 14 things I learned about Keegan Allen at Oz Comic Con.

7 TV Friendships that are Totally Ship-worthy

It seems like we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to friendships on our TV screens. These days I sometimes find myself more invested in the friendship between two characters rather than the main romantic pairing. I love that friendship is getting airtime, whether it’s bromance, BFFs or purely platonic, TV is showing that romantic relationships are not the only relationships that matter.

The 15 Best Jughead Jones Outfits, Ranked

Jughead Jones Outfits

One of my favourite aspects of The CW’s Riverdale are the fantastic outfits that the cast wear. Each character has their own distinct and enviable style. There is one character above all others that I love seeing dressed-up and dressed-down; Riverdale’s very own weirdo, Jughead Jones. Jughead, played by Cole Sprouse, is usually wearing his trademark grey crown beanie and layered flannels. His “S” t-shirt and hanging suspenders are also part of his signature look. Being a little bit (okay, a lot) in love with Jughead Jones (and let’s be real – Cole Sprouse), I decided to compile a ranking of my favourite outfits that he has worn in season 1. Here are the 15 best Jughead Jones outfits, ranked. Leave a comment below with your favourite Juggie outfits!

Jason Blossom Riverdale

Who killed Jason Blossom? It’s the biggest plot point of Season 1 of Riverdale and we’ve been trying to figure it out for 11 episodes.
Here’s what we know about Jason:
1. He was Cheryl’s twin.
2. He was captain of the school water polo team and a member of the football team.
3. He was heir to the Blossom maple syrup empire.
4. He impregnated and proposed to his girlfriend Polly Cooper.
5. They planned to run away together to raise their baby.
6. He made a deal with the Southside Serpents to deliver drugs for money.
7. He went missing on July 4th and was tortured and shot a week later.

Everyone is a suspect. But who actually had the motive, means and opportunity to kill Jason Blossom? Here are some of my theories.

Silversun (Australian Kids TV Show): Where Are They Now?

Silversun Australian Kids TV Show

Silversun was one of the greatest Australian kids tv shows of the early 2000s. Set in the year 2052, Silversun was a sci-fi children’s show that had aliens, romance, cool gadgets and horrible special effects. The series was short-lived and ended on a cliffhanger that people are still upset about today (#SilversunSeason3 #Revival). Thankfully, ABC hasn’t shut down the official Silversun website so us diehard fans (Silvies? Sunnies?) can relive some of those magical moments.

Being a kids tv show the majority of the cast were young at the time of filming. If you have ever wanted to know what happened to your favourite Silversun characters keep reading to find out!
