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

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