U.S. aficionados of the movie that put Australia on the map, 'Crocodile Dundee', may be disappointed to hear that those recent trailers for an upcoming sequel in 2018 were just part of an elaborate ad campaign by the Australian tourism board. The prank/technique was revealed in this 1'30" Super Bowl ad starring its ambassador, Chris Hemsworth. Fans can catch a glimpse of the original Crocodile Dundee himself, actor Paul Hogan. What do you think of the ad? Amusing but too close to 'fake advertising'? It got a lot of eyeballs, but how many of those are now swivelling in anger or disappointment??
