It just makes you cringe.

Seemingly dreamed up by a couple of teenage boys let loose in the marketing department, 'Taste the Bush' is truly as bad as the tagline suggests (note the position of the glass and its contents - very funny, guys).

Indeed, the only thing worse is the obviously-Australian actress's English accent, though that may simply be an attempt to distance herself from this car-crash of an advert.
