Since 1888, Billy Tea has been established as a household brand for Australian tea drinkers. With this recent ad campaign, the brand highlights its age to consumers by touching on nostalgic, gender-specific stereotypes, using their old age as a selling point. In the campaign, Billy Tea is related to a time when "men knew how ti fix more than their hair," which is just one example of the humor utilized.

Yet, the male-dominant mentality prevalent "back in the day" may seem quite controversial; thus, the ads reveal subtle humor to please both men and women. If you're still looking for a Father's Day gift, I'd say Billy Tea is a winner. After all, it's "Your Dad's Dad's Dad's choice of tea."
