Cate Blanchett's Most Underrated Performance Is In This Commercial For Australian Cookies

In Depth

The folks at Flavorwire called it “a raw, merciless portrait of human hunger.” The Daily Mail called it “cringey.” But I call it foreshadowing. If I’d been a Sydney resident in the mid 90s and seen Cate Blanchett appear on my TV screen asking a 3,000-year-old Australian genie for a magical carton of Tim Tams, I’d have thought, “This woman’s got it, I tell ya! She’s gonna go far!!!!”

And I would have been right.
