Foster's brewer Heineken UK has launched a cheeky viral tribute to England's cricket team after our Ashes victory down under.

The 15-second film, entitled Interference, shows Aussie blokes Brad and Dan in a parody of Foster's Good Call TV ad campaign.

In the original, the fast-talking duo offer advice to telephone callers from the UK on a range of dilemmas including whether it's a good idea to get a tattoo of your girlfriend's name.

In Interference the pair receive call from the UK asking if they enjoyed the Ashes Series. They respond by placing the radio near a phone, which creates static interference meaning they don't have to answer.

"England's stunning Ashes success has left most Aussie cricket fans speechless but our film shows Brad and Dan, the characters in our TV advertising, in defiant mood to the end," said brand manager Nic Casby.

"I'm sure England fans will enjoy our homage to England's magnificent achievement — and hopefully our Aussie cousins will forgive us one last show of English 'reverse swing'."
