NIce image & clean type treatment. No idea to speak of. After clicking on the link for the agency above there's a link to a music video of various musicians covering a Nick Cave song. While it's well done I'm still left wondering what it's all about.

You should not be wondering because it makes perfect sense. I've always thought you are from Australia, btw. I guess I was wrong.

I guess I need to read the lyrics. Not familiar with this song. Crikey

Never heard of Nick Cave (and the bad seeds) before? Btw, this song was voted one of the top 30 Australian songs ever recorded by the Australasian Performing Right Association. I agree.

Gorgeously crafted poster & tvc by the Monkeys.

It's all about the 'world famous' Sydney Opera House, mate(s)...
on Sydney Harbour...
full of sea water...
that ships sail on...
inspiring certain songwriters.

Nick Cave is an indie demi-God, down here and across Europe.
And definitely not the type to be covered on Idol.

I saw this as a tip of the hat to the famous Enlist poster about the Lusitania disaster.
