Australia’s advertising watchdog has already received a number of complaints about an ad from Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) that was released just yesterday, and which features religious figures and deities sitting around a table and tucking into some lamb.
The advertisement, produced by creative agency The Monkeys, continues a long line of controversial ads from MLA intended to promote lamb consumption among Australians, with the organisation’s infamous “Operation Boomerang” ad being one of the most complained about Australian ads of all time.
The two-minute long video features a range of religious figures and prophets, including Zeus, Jesus, Odin, Moses, Aphrodite, Ganesha, Confucius, and Buddha.
L. Ron Hubbard, founder of controversial school of thought Scientology is also included around the table, as well as an alien.
Banter is tossed back and forth between the figures, with Aphrodite receiving numerous online dating matches, prophet Muhammad being unable to show up
