A rally group in the Nations Capital have begun a “DVD burning” campaign in protest of Guy Pearce’s recent comments about Canberra.
The Anti-Anti-Canberra United Front set fire to DVDs of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, LA Confidential, and the Neighbours 1986-89 Commemorative Box Set at a rally outside Pearce shops.
“We are outraged by the comments from Guy Pearce. Canberra is a lovely place to live and we actually like all the roundabouts thank you,” said Jean Maxwell of the AACUF.
“I am actually now ashamed to say I live in the suburb of Pearce, which I don’t think was named after anyone related to Guy Pearce, but it sadly now reminds me of the bloke.”
British born Guy Pearce made the headlines recently after he made comments about Canberra on the USA talk show Craig Ferguson. He subsequently posted a letter in the Canberra Times suggesting that he even though he was “a dickhead”, he actually is quite a nice Guy.
