The voice behind the 1980s ‘Grim Reaper’ ads warning Australians about AIDS will be used in new TV ads cautioning the nation over immigration

Entrepreneur Dick Smith is launching a $1 million advertising blitz to convince Australians of the hazards of overpopulation, and why the company tax rate should be drastically hiked.

The ads will start rolling out from tomorrow across TVs and will feature the voice artist behind the 1980s ‘Grim Reaper’ ads warning Australians about AIDS.

“It’s a frightening ad that shows what’s going to happen if we have endless population growth – it’s going to destroy Australia as we know it today,” Mr Smith told ABC radio on Monday.

But the businessman said he was angry at having to spend so much on the anti-immigration ads, saying the money should be going to charities instead of wealthy TV station owners.
