IT took an iconic Australian biscuit to get 100 people to link arms and stretch across the Murray River’s Union Bridge yesterday.
The publicity people behind Arnott’s Tim Tams were in Albury-Wodonga promote a new range of the biscuit.
Borrowing from the theme of loving more than one flavour, Arnott’s marketing department thought that if you can love more than one flavour, you can love more than one state.
Wodonga teenager Jacob Quirk, 17, turned up at the Lincoln Causeway even before the Tim Tams team had arrived.
“I’m doing it for the (free) Tim Tams,” he said.
He said if anything could bring Albury and Wodonga together, it would be the biscuit.
“You can bring anyone together over Tim Tams.”
Arnott’s public affairs manager Renee McCarthy said Jacob was the most passionate fan of the day.
“Tim Tams have an effect with Australians that’s just beyond reason,” she said.
