I live in Melbourne Oz, The 'home of VB' and I have never seen this ad. Very clever and, yes, a redo of a veerrryyyy famous ad from the 60's spoken by John Meillon and VB at

I prefer Melbourne Bitter to VB and VB to Fosters (splutter). However Coopers, Boags, Cascade, are better Oz beers. No one really drinks XXXXX or Swan we just export that.

ps: for you Yanq's, the next time an Aussie tries to piss you off by saying how much better Fosters (ie VB, MB, Carlton, Crown, Fosters etc) is than US beer, then point out that 'Foster`s' refer to the Foster brothers....immigrant Yanq's to Australia who had to teach us how to brew lager (no it is not 'Bitter', only the Pom's make real bitter)

At last a use for Victoria Bitter!

You wouldn't drink the muck.

the tune is from a really old VB advert from the 80s

Look up VB advert on youtube.
