Australian Idol fans and adult websites

Meanwhile, telecommunications company Telstra is in trouble for purchasing full-page advertising in several leading News Corp. newspapers directing excited young Australian Idol fans to the official website of the newest winner Casey Donovan to download her first single.

The first problem?

They left out the .au at the end of the url.

The second problem?

Casey Donovan shares names with a rather popular gay pornstar. Put the two problems together and you get a fairly large "Oops!" And they say kids receive no cultural exposure these days.
