A cheeky new campaign has emerged that encourages Aussie travellers to experience South Australia and ‘Go Down South With Your Mouth’.
Designed to inspire travellers to taste the wonders of our southern region, the campaign invites your clients to get in touch with their senses by getting sloshed and “eating out” in South Australia’s food and wine regions.
And, if you haven’t guessed it by now, this campaign was not released by the South Australian Tourism Commission, but a company called Taste Down South, and coincidentally was released just in time for April Fool’s Day.
Complete with a sensual clip that makes us more excited to taste Aussie produce than we should be, the campaign has its own website and merch to boot.
And yes, the video is full of delightful innuendos like “your tongue yearns for a certain sensation”, “is it time to let our abundant delights burst in your mouth?”, and our personal favourite, “Is it time to bask in Australian bush?”
ABC News was able to piece together enough information to trace the campaign to a Gold Coast company called ICBM Pty Ltd, which is owned by Adam Blackburn and Blaze Tripp, who admitted last year that they were behind the C U in the NT campaign.
But, that’s not all for Travel Weekly‘s April Fool’s Day coverage.
Here’s a round-up of all the snippets of travel news we’ve come across this morning that we reckon seem suspicious:
