Dedicated to the Australian Wunderkind, Harrison the Mad Metal Man.
“Energizer! It’ll surprise ya! OI!”
In the late-80s, there was a period of time when anything Australian was all the rage. There was Paul Hogan, Crocodile Dundee, Yahoo Serious, Midnight Oil, INXS and Jacko! Everybody was walking around doing terrible accents, saying “that’s not a knife,” and “throw another shrimp on the barbie.” Even better though were the Energizer battery ads by footballer Jacko Johnson. What energy! He definitely popularized the phrase “Oi!” in Canada.
