Oprah’s coming to Australia to do some shows – you may have heard about this. I watched her show last week where there was a segment done by our own Network Ten’s Carrie Bickmore about what us Ossie’s like. Apparently she would have us all going to McAfe’s and having a cup of coffee.
Mmm, really? I watched this segment with my mouth open in disbelief. Really, coffee at McDonald’s? Oh no not I, and not many many other Australians.
I realised as she kept going on about McDonald’s and then as the healthy McDonald’s wraps came out to the audience that they were obviously a sponsor. I guess they paid a fortune for that little infomercial but how many of Oprah’s viewers would have us Ossies (by the way we pronounce it Ozzies) all sipping a latte at McDonalds?
There’s been an uproar over here in Australia about this on Twitter and on the web.
A couple of stories include:
So us Ozzies do love our coffee but not necessarily McDonald’s coffee. You can’t believe everything you see on Oprah.
