Holeproof Explorer Socks: You never know where you'll end up

Writer Richard Williams and Art Director Ant Phillips created an idea based on the premise that when you wear Holeproof Explorer socks you just never know where you may end up. The resulting campaign follows the journey of an Aussie bloke, wearing only a loincloth and a pair of Explorer Socks, hanging out with a tribe of Kalahari Bushmen.

Well, this is the first socks commercial I have ever seen in thousands upon thousands of ads. And hopefully the last.

A bit short to establish the sense of this guy's involvement with the San, which leaves the punchline a bit floaty. Otherwise not bad at all. Quite funny.

"i think i'm in africa" Couldn't he have said kalahari or something? This generalization doesn't do much good for aussie no?
I've heard it's a fairly racist place.

A fairly harmless socks ad has led to some giant knob labelling all of Australia as racist. Cant some people just have a laugh and see it for what it is. For f#*ks sake.
