Rob Sitch and Peter Faiman help to create the ways in which responders are emotionally connected to the Australian voices presented in the films "The Castle" and "Crocodile Dundee". The Australian voices are conveyed through multiculturalism, the humour and egalitarianism.These Australian voices are expressed through Aussie Battle, Aussie mateship and Aussie larrikin, which is played by the main protagonists Daryl Kerrigan and Mick Dundee to demonstrate process in which responders are emotionally connected to the Australian voices.
