KFC – Ever been caught doing something you shouldn’t have been doing in public? Of course, the Aussie social justice warriors condemn this commercial, which is usually a pretty good sign that it will be funny.
McDonald’s – No intro needed here because McDonald’s is McDonald’s everywhere in the world. Hard to believe a hamburger commercial could make you tear up, but this one can. A great Aussie story with a great Aussie soundtrack.

The commercial is a really funny exploration of the differences between the Aussie language and the American language.
