Great White Shark Greg Norman wants to attack a Crocodile Dundee reboot

It’s believed the ad cost $36 million to create Could the Crocodile Dundee sequel really happen!?

"On behalf of Crocodile Dundee lovers around the world, we petition Paul Hogan and actors to create a new instalment of the movie".

So why Dundee? Well, it appears that the original movie and the sequel caused major spikes in USA tourism to Australia.

Featuring local stars Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth, the campaign appears to be a trailer for the new film Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home, but halfway through the video, begins promoting Australia's "amazing wines", leading to the characters breaking the fourth wall and revealing the ulterior motive.

Producers from The Late Show With Seth Meyers will also fly to Australia this month to film travel segments to air for U.S. audiences; while Hemsworth has prerecorded appearances on a number of daytime variety programs.

Paul Hogan, however, told The Today Show's Richard Wilkins that he has no interest in reviving Crocodile Dundee.

At least they, unlike many other teams, made a deal happen. "It's not something that's lost on any of us", Wilpon said. The 31-year-old had signed a one-year, $13 million deal with the White Sox before they traded him to the Yankees.


Speaking to Newsbeat, Chris said: "If we could find the right story and script we might do it". The teaser films and promotional campaign encouraged fans to tune in to see the "official movie trailer" during the Big Game, where the Tourism Australia campaign was ultimately revealed.

The minister went on to explain that the campaign, which also featured fake teaser trailers starring Russel Crowe (who is actually Kiwi), Margot Robbie, Hugh Jackman and other famous local faces, was all part of Tourism Australia's strategy to "aggressively target" the United States market. A distinct suite of online films-titled "Why Australia?"-featuring Danny "Dundee" McBride were developed in parallel". Here are all the clips released so far, including the Super Bowl ad.

The website for the "movie" now redirects to a post on the Tourism Australia website.

But, he noted, "Despite rating highly in terms of aspiration and intention, we still have more work to do when it comes to converting American interest in Australia into actual visits. Importantly, many viewers are the high-yielding American traveler we specifically target", she said. As it turns out, Danny McBride was chosen by Chris Hemsworth to join in on the fun and be the only American actor alongside the A-list Aussie cast. The goal of the campaign is to push that number to $6 billion by 2020. "From the strategic rigor and creative development to the production execution and PR approach, the clients have been on this journey with us 100 percent of the way". There couldn't be a better time in the U.S. for us to celebrate those quintessential Australian values of carefree fun, good humor, and epic adventure. Australia wants it, the world wants.
