A Sydney man who was initially hesitant about getting the COVID vaccine, has been persuaded to get the jab after an advertising campaign calling on people to get vaccinated from Australian musicians and celebrities.
Dave Lewiston of Newtown, said he was initially hesitant and had long-term reservations, but it was ultimately Tim Minchin and other entertainers talking down to him that got the jab in his arm.
“It’s clearly been shown that patronising messages from people who deem themselves above everyone else are received well. That’s what pushed me over the edge and now I’m double jabbed,” Dave said.
Minchin said he felt comfortable being the figurehead of the campaign.
“We’re fighting back against the establishment by submitting to the establishment. That’s the sign of a good artist,” Minchin said.
“I’m renown for image-crafting my public persona as being some kind of sophisticated ‘science-driven’ intellect, when I’m really just a narcissistic, lefty wanker who isn’t really that funny.”
The campaign will also premiere on tv across the nation.
