Because that song would only be funny to an Australian.
Definatley not their funniest stunt, I like the ones were they go to the US and ask general knowledge questions to people on the street.
That, and the Apec stunt.

Actually it's one of their best because it upset ACA and TT (A Current Affair and Today Tonight)

Everything they do offends TT, from saying Steve Irwin was a [censored] to accusing Anna Cohren of being anorexic.

Wikipedia Definition: Desecration
"the act of depriving something of its sacred character -- or the disrespectful or contemptuous treatment of that which is held to be sacred by a group or individual."

I have seen the song previously, and the below image sums it up.
Image removed, remember to use the uploader

The song is written by a group of comedians who most likely didn't know the people they wrote about personally. There was no need for the song to be written, and I do not find it funneh. I thought it was pretty weak, these people are dead - tainting how we remember them isn't going to help anyone.

I didn't find it funny either, but it's (supposedly) a free country and they have the right to say whatever they want (Though a little tact and common sense goes a long way)

IIRC, the main point Today Tonight made about this song, is that the ABC is government funded, and so indirectly (TT makes this point alot) the government pays them to do this crap, and gives them air time for it.

Very funny song,

When I said I didn't find it funny. I know Zach said that it would be offensive to some people, I was just disappointed that it needed discussed.

I just love the irony that a show that tried to hug the PM while holding a chainsaw is government funded.

It was very interesting to see what the Chaser guys said about the stunt on the audio commentary, they basically said that when it was performed in the show Dead Caesar the audience of the show didn't complain due to the fact they thought when it was performed there it was a 'Private' club. But when it was performed to the Australian public it wasn't liked as much. Though I'm willing to bet most of the complaints came from people who watched the Stories on Today Tonight and A Current Affair and took the view of their one sided journalism though they probably haven't watched the show before.

One sided Journalism?
They portray all sides of the story (That a middle class white christian family with 2.5 children would need to see)

Every time somthing happens they get some random family to bitch and moan about how bad they've got it.

I think from now on all the videos posted in this forum should be put in a sticky thread dedicated to all the videos in the jokes and fun section.
Sorry if you guys didnt find the song funny, of course it was going to be offensive like i warned.
It seemed funny to me the first time i watched the video.
