It was Aussie wine company Yellow Tail Wines first foray into Super Bowl advertising and it has every cliche Aussies want Americans to think – drinking, barbecues, kangaroos and girls in bikinis. But it appears the advert just caused confusion on Twitter.
The 30-second commercial involves an unusually randy kangaroo who DJs, sips wine and BBQs. “This is a kangaroo. If you see him at a party, it’s a good party,” the ‘Yellow Tail Man’ tells us.
On behalf of Australia I apologise for that YellowTail ad. Also please don’t drink yellowtail #SuperBowl

The Yellowtail Super Bowl ad humiliated my country more than Trump ever could.

What hurt USA / Aussie relations more, Trump or that Yellowtail ad? Yikes.

After that Yellowtail ad, I can almost understand why Trump hung up on Australian Prime Minister #Superbowl

It’s been a rough week for Australia but surely that Yellow Tail #SuperBowl Ad with the DJing kangaroo was the low point.
