Imagine stopping to buy something in Australia only to find the vendor, for some reason, only accepts foreign American currency. Certainly makes things a little inconvenient…

P&O Cruises Australia today released a quirky, entertaining video for its Australian travellers, reaffirming its commitment to trading onboard in AUD currency. Passengers sailing on the line’s soon-to-be five ships do not need to worry about a charge for US Dollars for items onboard, with no currency conversion fee when settling your account on disembarkation day.

On this particular occasion, P&O sets up a hidden camera in a public thoroughfare, with an American-sounding hot-dog vendor serving customers before revealing he only accepts US Dollars to pay for the food. The public reactions are understandably predictable.
