As border closures dominate the headlines and premiers go head-to-head, a new OOH activation by Australian Lamb shows state leaders tucking into lamb chops in a series of “light-hearted” murals.

The concept, created by The Monkeys and illustrated by Nigel Buchanan, is a parody of ‘the kiss’, the famous Berlin Wall mural.

Displayed on billboard trucks around the country, from cities to iconic border locations, the murals show illustrated depictions of Australian premiers settling their differences by coming together and tucking into a lamb cutlet.

From Tweed Heads to Albury-Wodonga, Canberra to Perth, the murals are journeying around Australia and border locations from Thursday, 21 January to Saturday, 23 January, and will be in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane on Monday, 25 January.

“During 2020, for the first time in history, some Australian states closed their borders, separating families and loved ones, causing confusion, and highlighting some simmering political tensions,” Graeme Yardy, domestic market manager at Meat & Livestock Australia, claimed.

“As the brand that stands for unity, we thought it only appropriate to bring our leaders back together, in the most delicious way possible, with a juicy tender BBQ lamb cutlet.

“Our hope is that Australians will see these murals as a fun symbol of our country, doing what it does best, putting its differences aside and working together to overcome adversity.”

The activity comes after Australian Lamb recently launched its summer ad, also created by The Monkeys.

The new film broke down state borders and brought the nation together over a summer lamb barbie, reflecting on 2020 as a pivotal time in our history where Australia was physically divided due to the pandemic.

The Monkeys executive creative director Vince Lagana said: “Depicting our leaders coming together over a lamb cutlet perfectly complements the wider ‘Make lamb, not walls’ campaign.

“Most of the murals are positioned near state borders as we continue to unite the nation through some much needed light-hearted humour the way only Australian Lamb can.”

The mural activation launched today with support from UM and OOH company Hyped Media.

The activation will be supported by one green bean to drive coverage for the campaign across earned media and owned social.

The premier murals will be journeying around Australia at the below locations and times:

State Location Date Mural
Vic/SA border Portland Nelson Rd/Glenelg River Rd Thu, 21 Jan to Sat, 23 Jan Dan and Steven
Qld/NSW border Tweed Heads & Coolangatta Thu, 21 Jan to Sat, 23 Jan Gladys and Annastacia
