Tongue on quest for Tooheys Extra Dry

Ask around Australia for the most memorable bad taste television advertisement and you’re likely to get “that one with the tongue and the dry beer”. A man and woman lie in bed asleep. And then the tongue jumps out of the guy’s mouth. It heads out the door, crosses the street and wends its way through the party to find the bath full of water. Down it plunges until it finds a bottle of Tooheys Extra Dry. Back the tongue goes, attached to the bottle. Arriving home it jumps back into the guy’s mouth. He wakes up to find he’s drinking ‘in his sleep’.
