It was to be expected that the first the first ‘No’ campaign TV ad for same-sex marriage was going to encourage a rebuttal or two of sorts, but not all got the positive reaction they were looking for.
Aussie comedian Christian Hull has released a hilarious video mocking the nationally-televised commercial, dressing up as a woman and speaking in a high-pitched tone.
The video has already gathered over 890,000 views on Facebook since going live on Wednesday, along with 19,000 positive reactions and a ton of positive comments.
Meanwhile, Channel Ten’s The Project created its own piss-take of the anti same-sex marriage campaign.

However, despite garnering almost 600 likes on Twitter, the video also drew a swathe of negative criticism.
If someone took the same approach against the other side of this debate they’d be lambasted and labelled homophobic. Poor taste @pjhelliar

Disappointed by the evident bias. No problem with stating your own opinion but then pushing it like this not good. I’m voting yes btw

First the photoshopped poster now this. You dipsticks are the best thing the No vote could ask for, at no cost. Well done morons.

Essentially what you’re saying is that people who vote ‘No’ are homophobic bigots? Got to love the media today. Very unbiased reporting.
