Shrimp on the Barby

It’s an Australia thing



Shrimp on the Barby in Australia

“Shrimp on the barbie” is a phrase that originated in a series of TV advertisements by the Australian Tourism Commission starring Paul Hogan from 1984 through to 1990. Hogan’s actual quote is “I’ll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you”, and the actual slogan of the ad was “Come and say G’day”.
