We have some pressing thoughts after a new ad for Uber Eats, featuring Kim Kardashian and Magda Szubanski, hit Australian screens last night. Realistically, how much would it cost to book Kardashian for an afternoon? How many honest-to-God American dollars would she have earned learning to pronounce “noice”? Will her appearance next to one of Australia’s most beloved comic figures actually encourage anyone to splurge on a couple of pad thais and a Coke Zero? Is Kim really here if you need?
Precisely none of those questions are answered by a new behind-the-scenes video, which features the reality star hamming it up in a Sharon Strzelecki-style bowl cut wig, nibbling 1/16th of a Tim Tam, and wrapping her mouth around “yiros”.
“I do not take pineapple on pizza, but I’m not opposed to it. I’m just like, in-between,” Kim said, rolling her eyes like someone who just earned more in one afternoon than the 16-year-old kid who makes the pizzas earns in a year.
