I feel like even if this isn't real, it's going to become real due to the intrigue.
Agreed. This isnít brilliant marketing regardless.

Is this Tourism Australia's most expensive ad EVER? Super Bowl slot could cost taxpayers $207,000 a SECOND ... amid speculation Chris Hemsworth's Dundee project is for US audiences

It's speculated to be a marketing stunt aiming to capture US audiences watching the Super Bowl on next month.

And if social media predictions are true Chris Hemsworth's new Dundee project could be one of Tourism Australia's most expensive single ads ever.

The Daily Telegraph reports on Thursday a sought after commercial slot during the football game would cost around $6.23 million (USD $5 million).

That would cost Australian taxpayers $207,000 per second for a 30 second slot during the broadcast.

The eye-watering price tag comes on top of the filming, location, and cast costs such an ad would entail.

Meanwhile on Wednesday, Chris promoted his new 'film' by sharing a video from the project, which also stars Danny McBride, to Instagram.

'Dundee is back! Well, actually, heís missing in the Outback and itís up to me and @lone_wolf_mcbride to find him. Official trailer for @DundeeMovie coming soon,' he captioned the post.

Seems like a real waste.

Somewhere, someone at Paramount is trying get something together after all this attention. Hell, maybe they’ll throw it in with the Cloverfield deal to Netflix, if that happens. Someone is making a 4th movie after this.

I hope when they find Dundee, he’s given a knife, and replies “that’s not a knife” and chucks it off a cliff.

And why not make Hemsworth Dundee in a true movie? He’s proven in fish out of water stories like the first Thor.

There were rumors for years that Hogan wanted him for the franchise.

seems like a no-brainer. Hogan wasnít exactly a spring chicken when the original was around, and I doubt thereíd be an outcry for Hemsworth to like there would be for an Indy film. Plus hes Australian, so yeah, get it done Paramount!

Loved the original, seen it as much as any movie from the 80s, even if lot of the jokes are of their time, a bit sexist/homophobic, but whatever, itís a classic fish out of water tale and the two leads had great chemistry. And it was funny as hell.

Wouldn't be the first time that a high-concept Super Bowl ad got turned into a major motion picture.

This reminds me of that awful National Lampoonís Vacation sequel mini movie ad that HomeAway (the AirBnB pre-cursor that didnít break out in the way that AirBnB did) ran during the SuperBowl a few years ago. The ad had a few clips and directed you to their website to watch the whole thing. I donít remember if it was one short film or a couple episodes, but it was awful. Chevy/Beverly were fine but the guy who played Rusty was unbelievably bad.
If itís an Australian tourism campaign then surely it will serve as more than just a SuperBowl ad, so Iím curious how this will play out. And if itís an Outback Steakhouse ad, yikes!

Loved loved the movie growing up.

Would think they could make an actual movie here for not much money.

I just don't get why such an elaborate (and probably expensive) marketing campaign for Australian tourism with Crocodile fucking Dundee. All this does is make me want to see this movie, not go to Australia.

Will the big ad played during the Super Bowl have Paul Hogan in it? I hope so.

Iím guessing thereís going to be a series of ads scattered throughout the Super Bowl. Hogan will show up near the end, say sometime in the 4th quarter.

Didnít Hogan get the Dundee gig after being found in Australian tourism ads in the first place?

I would have enjoyed seeing these during the Australian Open, but I get that the Super Bowl is a much bigger deal.
