Streets' new advertising campaign is a little bit cheeky.

The advertising team working for Streets ice-cream has been having a gay old time with it’s latest campaign.

A huge billboard on top of Sydney’s The Bridge Hotel is already grabbing the attention of passers-by — and the media — with a not-so-subtle reference to the 2005 film Brokeback Mountain.

“Gaytime?” a cheeky Bubble O’Bill suggests to a nearby Golden Gaytime, who replies: “Woah there cowboy!”

It’s not the first time the company has gone for a risqué play on the iconic biccie-covered ice-cream’s name, their last ads featured the slogan: “It’s hard to have a Gaytime on your own,” which is as true as it is bloody ingenious.

According to Mumbrella, another soon-to-be-released version of the advertisements will feature a sass-tastic Calippo inferring that his new boss Mr O’Bill might have a bit of a stick up his behind.

The marketing director behind the ads, Anthony Toovey, said they just wanted to “put a smile on people’s faces during that return-to-work period.”

The campaign will include 30 different images, fitted to various mediums, including a Cornetto ad for the Tennis season…

And another rather beach-y one featuring a Bubble O’Bill and bikini-clad Splice.
