Daily Mail Australia story gets Katy Perry Menulog ad that pulled ‘RUINED State of Origin’ and replaced it with bizarre footage of footy legend sleeping and brushing his teeth

  • Advertisement for game one of interstate clash drew a furious response from viewers
  • They complained it was annoying as it was repeated in every ad break
  • New Menulog ad references reference Daily Mail Australia’s story about Perry’s commercial
  • Takes a radically different approach with Origin legend Wendell Sailor

NRL fans were outraged when Katy Perry’s Menulog ad played during every ad break in State of Origin game one – but they were saved a repeat in the second interstate clash thanks to a Daily Mail Australia story.

The food delivery giant instead went on a campaign with legendary Queensland player Wendell Sailor sleeping and brushing his teeth – with the commercial opening up taking a sniff from our article about fans blowing up his predecessor.

With the headline: ‘Footy fans are outraged by Katy Perry’s ‘ANNOYING’ Menulog commercial that played during every commercial break: ‘Officially ruined State of Origin’, the story where fans slam the TV spot.

The food delivery giant's previous ad featuring Katy Perry left viewers sidelined, so this time they decided to go in a completely different direction.

“I’ve seen more of Katy Perry than Nathan Cleary tonight,” one user said with a wink.

Another commented, “Katy Perry and her Menulog ad have officially ruined its state of origin.”

One fan even joked that “watching Katy Perry dance and sing like a block of cheese every commercial break forced me to use heroin.”

Dressed in an array of bright and eccentric outfits, the pop star sang about various foods during the loud and lively clip.

Menulog’s efforts for game two were completely the opposite, with Sailor brushing his teeth and even sleeping.

The footage was preceded by the caption, “Dear Origin fans, it looked like we overcooked it in Game 1. Oops. Enjoy 16 seconds of Wendell Sailor brushing his teeth instead.”

But the change wasn’t enough for one footy fan who tweeted, “This Wendell Sailor ad may be the worst I’ve ever seen.”

Menulog responded by tweeting, ‘Gosh, we can’t win with you, can we? We wanted to do something a little quieter for game 2. Big Dell is a laid-back guy. Seems logical to us.’
