Australian Government Cyber-Security Video Is Painful To Watch

How do you like to receive your information on so-called cyber-security? If you like it to be outdated, littered with terrible puns and just a little bit racist? If you answered yes, you’re awful and will love this atrociously bad public service announcement from the Government about how to protect your digital assets and online identity.

The ad stars former Australian radio “personality” Merrick Watts in the “humourous” narrator role, telling us all the things we ought to do to keep ourselves safe.

The lessons we walk away with are: nerds are fat and have no friends, don’t let foreign pizza guys into your house, be a pervy stalker with night vision goggles and generally just be a douche.

Honestly it’s 2015, and we’re smarter than you think. Pull your fucking socks up.
