Look Smart Trivia: Aussie Icons


Moving to Australia, like I did a couple of years ago, means getting to know a whole new constellation of entertainment stars, politicians, star athletes, fictional characters, public events, stereotypes, jingles, and more. Here are five icons from a Bizarro cultural pantheon that every Australian knows intimately, but that I knew little to nothing about back in the States. If you’re the first player to name all five - and be as specific as possible - you’ll win a $5 Meh coupon, currently worth about 7 Australian dollars. Insert signoff catchphrase here!

It turns out @DrWorm is as much of a nerd about Ad Mascots as I am, nailing all five of the spokestoons in yesterday’s quiz. That’s GRRRRREAT!

  1. Woodsy Owl - U.S. Forest Service
  2. Play-Doh Pete
  3. The Cinzano zebra
  4. Tom Tomato - Heinz
  5. Kool-Aid Man
