An unusual advert for the Australian election has surfaced and gone viral – and it is unlikely to please the new Prime Minister.

Both leaders will feature on traditional media – television – on Sunday night.
They have agreed to face off in a one-off televised leaders debate; the problem is they will be up against the final of Masterchef, Australia's highest-rating show.
So there is talk it will be brought forward an hour, which will have them competing against Kylie Minogue on Dancing With The Stars.
Australians are already saying the debate will be third choice.
