Australia Day Promotion Goes Wrong
Outback Steakhouse takes their disrespect of Australia to new heights in their 2015 Australia Day promotion.
It's no secret that Outback Steakhouse is not authentic Australian food - no Australian has any clue what the hell a Blooming Onion is. Still, Outback Steakhouse continues to appropriate Australian culture in order to make a buck.
This year their Australia Day promotion backfired. Needless to say, Australians are pissed and letting Outback Steakhouse hear about it on social media.
Outback Steakhouse released the following promotional ad for Australia Day but there's 2 major problems with it....
Apparently a puddle is smarter than the entire Marketing team at Outback Steakhouse
Rumors are swirling that they're deleting tweets that reference the screw up. All while acting like they've done nothing wrong.
To all my fellow Aussies in America.... I'm wishing you a very happy Australia Day (and I was sure to include Tassie in the map)
For reference, this is the Australian flag
And this is how the flag map combo is done
Maybe they'll use the British flag for July 4th too. Seems only fair.
