In a desperate attempt to make light of the current political climate, the Broadway-style musical ad that pits the Left and the Right against each other has got people asking – is it time to stop making these lamb ads.

Meat & Livestock Australia goes famously big for its TV commercials, and has attracted plenty of controversy over the years.

Of course, the – totally unexpected – plot twist is that the one thing that can bring them all together is lamb.
