I seek the truth wherever it lies.

Aussie humor, or Aussie anti-Semitic hatred?

Recently, the Australia Lamb PR campaign released a humorous video about religious gods from over 25 religions eating lamb together at an outdoor picnic. The official video site got over 1 million page views and it’s hilarious.

It’s funny, laugh at loud funny, and very well done from a video production point of view. The script is perfect, very well written and the director is a genius.

Well done, Australia! See the video here.

But some jokers in Australia made their own video on their own separate video channel and here it is. It ends on a bit of an anti-Semitic note when the tagline appears. (The tagline is not part of the official video, of course.)

Is this tagline at the end of the 2-minute video an example of Aussie humor, or this tagline an example of Aussie anti-Semitic hatred?

I honestly don’t know. I have asked some Australian friends, Jewish and non-Jewish, and so far none of them want to go on record as telling me their true opinion on this.

The tagline on this advert reads, with my brackets for clarification: ”YouTube has declared this ad offensive, and, [as a result] it is not eligible for monetization. Hence the censorship from the Jewish ADL [Anti-Defamation League] is dictating what is acceptable and where the world’s [International Jewish Conspiracy] advertising dollars go. [Non-Jewish Australian] creators [of this Aussie ad] are now denied A$100,000,000 as YouTube funnels revenue to their chosen creators [the Chosen People].”

CAN ANYONE IN AUSTRALIA EXPLAIN THIS HUMOUR OR CAN THE PEOPLE WHO RUN THIS YOUTUBE CHANNEL explain their reasoning?

Several newspapers and websites in Australia and the USA and the UK and Canada are now looking into this in order to find out who was behind the humourous [or anti-Semitic] — take your pick — tagline at the end of the video, including the New York Times, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Age, The BBC, The Guardian, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) in New York and the Times of Israel.
