"The World Thinks Australian Wine Drinkers Are Smug Wankers"

Mumbrella cites the below Jacob's Creek ad, screened internationally, as one of the most hated, most utterly despised Australian ads of last year, if not of all time. The Mumbrella YouTube channel, where this cloying drivel is embedded, is awash with brutal, violent comments from around the world, including this one :
"If I were at that party, I’d smash that Jacob’s Creek bottle and jam it into his throat"
And this one :
"What a complete fucking cunt that bloke is. He needs to be savagely raped with that wine bottle whilst his equally detestable stable of middle class cunt friends need shooting too."
Over the top? Yeah, that's what I thought, too. Until I watched it :

Mumbrella has collected more comments on how much this ad has made the world hate Australians here.
