A new rock act named ‘Barnesy, Farnsy and Anhsy’ joint-headlined by Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham and Anh Do will appear on screens as the latest addition to the ‘Tonight I’ll be Eating Campaign’ for Uber Eats.

The iconic rock duo Farnham and Barnes, both inductees into the Aria Hall of Fame, are now joined by comedian Anh Do on percussion.

Barnes had hesitations about the formation of a band for the commercial. He said: “I thought it was never going to work,” but ultimately the chance to link up with Do and Farnham was too good to pass up.

“When I was a young fella and John first released Sadie, from the time he was a young popstar right up to today, he is one of the best singers I’ve ever heard.”

Following the award-winning run of the last Uber Eats campaign – the playful integration during the Australian Open – regional general manager for Uber Eats ANZ Jodie Auster said it was important for the campaign to continue to surprise and delight.

“The latest creative celebrates iconic and unexpected Australian combinations. Our choice of talent reflects the broad demographic of Uber Eats users and their diverse interests.”

Do described his experience on the set of the latest campaign with “two awesome Aussie legends,” as a privilege having grown up listening to two of Australia’s most celebrated musicians.

“Jimmy Barnes is the ultimate rockstar,” he said.

Special Group managing director Cade Heyde said: “We’re beyond thrilled that the likes of John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes and Anh Do have now joined the ranks of Uber Eats.

“We’re proud that being in this campaign is now a bit of a mark that you’re a true part of Aussie culture for celebrities in this country”.
