WATCH: Rhonda And Ketut From AAMI Become A Viral Internet Sensation!

14 August 2012

Today, Rhonda and Ketut have solidified their status as advertising icons.

You've all seen the ad, and tried to imitate the accent ('loiike a sunrrooise'), and now the stars of the current AAMI ads are even getting an online following!

A Facebook page, which has been named "The sexual tension between Katut and Rhonda," suggests that there is something more to Ketut and Rhonda's conversation than first meets the eye.

Even though the page only sprung up at the start of this week, it already has almost 55k followers -- more than the Take 40 Facebook!

What's the verdict on this year's Big Brother?

The creator of the page has reposted phrases from the ad such as "You look so hot today Rhonda. Like a sunrise" and "You're naughty" to back up his speculation that there's something going on between the two.

Facebook is not the only one to notice the ad though, Tribute T-shirts are now widely available around Bali where the ad was filmed.

Arlene Baverstock told news.com.au "Bali is actually full of singlets now that say 'rhonda is mine''I love rhonda' etc! They're so quick!"

Several other tribute pages have sprung up, with some suggesting the ad is extremely racist. What do you think?

Check out the original ad below, with over 40k views on YouTube!
