WARNING: CONTAINS SWEARING


So I have just spent the better part of an hour watching through this series of Youtube videos and I haven't laughed so hard in quite some time! I post them here for you to enjoy.

A note: To most Aussies this will need no explanation but for the rest of the world this is a series of satirical videos made by Indians about Australian culture and appears to be set in the late 1970's to early 1980's but with some modern themes. If you have any questions or don't understand any part of this, or some of the words spoken, don't hesitate to ask and I shall be happy to explain.

It seems the Indians, having been friends with us for many decades now, have finally figured us Aussies out! Get ready to laugh your ass off......

Don't they mean "Strine?"
"Let's talk Strine" was a book published back in the Sixties.
The only detail I remember is that "Emma Chisit?" is a request to know the price of an article.

Strayan or Strine is a slang term for "Australian"

"Emma Chisit?" is basically "How much is it" in a thick Aussie accent.

Can't figure out if these guys are Wiggles wannabees or StarTrek stowaways.

Well, in Star Trek the Red Shirt always dies, and this one is alive, so it's The Wiggles.



My logic is infallible!

I watched them all and got some laughs from all of them. I am sure that some went over my head, with me not being 'strine'.
The Ned Kelly bit reminded me a little of a Monty Python skit.

Yeah there's a couple in there that I don't really expect anyone other than an Aussie to get. The Ned Kelly bit is particularly funny lol. I'm still chuckling about the videos 3 hours later.

I am curious about the barbie scene where what looked like cheese on a stick was being passed out... they called it "coon"?
What was it?

We have a brand of cheese named "Coon", which is also a racist term used pejoratively to refer to a person of African, Australian Aboriginal or Pacific island heritage (Wiki). The brand is named after it's founder Edward William Coon. Nobody seriously believes the cheese is racist but we still make jokes about the name.

As an Englishman I have noticed that you should never mention stealing bread rolls and transportation in the same sentence to an Aussie.

They get a bit funny
