Telstra has taken out print advertisements for its new cloud offering, but what are the ads really saying?

In an advert on the back page of today's AustralianIT section, Telstra shows a man in a business shirt, holding some cables and scratching his head to advertise that cloud would be better than the mess he'd made.

The ad, however, looks like it could be hilariously re-captioned to promote a completely different product, such as cable ties or anti-dandruff shampoo.

What could your new caption be? Check out the video to see the ad and leave us a comment about what the bewildered-looking datacentre man can spruik next.
