The Australian Jackson 5
You've probably seen this by now. I love how the host just seems amazed that this could be deemed offensive. If i was in Connick Jr's position I would have just given them a 3, smiled politely and sacked my agent.
Thanks to the 'Hey Hey it's Saturday' the world now has another cultural stereotype to hang on the average Australian. Along with the traditional 'bullying sports bore' and 'insecure nationalist loud mouth' we now have the 'jaw droppingly naive racist'.
Struth! Here's another one! You could write a whole blog about blackface Australian Jackson 5 parodies.
