Internet video released by Australian government aiming to motivate and recruit Aussie athletes ahead of the London Olympics.
The 80-second video stars a Brit in a hoodie, who says stuff like: "I'll call you an Aussie muppet. You ain't got what it takes son. The only gold you'll be picking up will be from a chocolate wrapper. Jog on." and "Oh, you might pick up something in diving. Yeah. Diving in football.", as well as "You won't win nothing Aussie, nothing, zilch. So mate, you may as well stay home. Because there's no way you're making it to London".
The video was emailed to about 280,000 Australian athletes aged between 12 and 29 and encourages them to register their interest with the Australian Sports Commission.
This is probably the equivalent of the U.S. sending a "Yo Ma Ma video" about Japan's baseball teams.
