Video: ANZACs and alcohol

With the centenary of Gallipoli fast approaching, ANZAC day is firmly entrenched in the popular consciousness of Australia and New Zealand. This short clip looks at a former soldier talking about his experiences in the war, but reveals it’s actually a subtle beer advertisement. It goes on to ask contemporary Australians whether the ad’s acceptable or not, with divided responses.

The video was produced as part of ABC’s ‘The G Word‘ documentary special, which features Australians reacting to clips relating to the First World War.
