The funsters behind Cloncurry Shire Council in North West Queensland's video productions are at it again.
In their latest effort Luke Chaplain and friends invite Aussie "stars" to a COVID-friendly barbecue and when the likes of Shane Warne, Ashleigh Barty, Dame Edna and Cathy Freeman can't show up, their cardboard cut-outs come to the rescue, popping up at the Chinaman Creek Dam and at the Recreation Grounds.
The video has a serious message which is to invite travellers to the friendly heart of the west in 2021 after mostly missing out on tourist traffic in 2020.
It's a return to form after two hilarious efforts in 2019 when they first turned the town's 43 successive days of 40 degrees into a viral video, they have followed up with another cracker called "Cloncurry cold snap" as the mercury "plummets" to a mere 38.
