‘You Ought To Be Vaccinated’: Iconic ad rewritten with a COVID-19 twist
One of the nation’s most iconic ads has been rewritten to encourage Australians to get vaccinated.
The Meadow Lea ‘You Ought To Be Congratulated’ advertisement from the 1980s has been rewritten with a COVID-19 vaccination spin.
The new version is titled ‘You Ought To Be Vaccinated’.
Ad guru Rob Belgiovane, who drafted the lyrics, says getting the vaccine jingle perfect was a group effort.
“We thought if we use this song from happier times, if we put lyrics there to give people hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel and we can all get back together to living the way we used to live, it might be a good thing to put out there right now,” he told Ross and Russel.
