Hamish Blake hit Bondi Beach on Thursday with a camera crew in tow to film a new project.

While it’s unclear exactly what he was filming, it’s most likely something for Tourism Australia.

The LEGO Masters host and his wife Zoe Foster-Blake already appeared in one campaign commercial for Tourism Australia earlier this month.

The couple appeared on Sunrise earlier this month, shortly after debuting their new tourism advert.

But things took an awkward twist following a joke about the comedian’s tight-fitting wetsuit he wore in the clip – with host Natalie Barr asking a question which had everyone scratching their heads.

‘How embarrassed have you been?’ Natalie, 53, said to Hamish, 39.

After a brief pause and a giggle, his wife Zoe, 40, laughed: ‘Of him? In general?’

‘…being on this campaign?’ Natalie rapidly added, to a sea of laughter from the loved-up couple.

‘OH! on the campaign. I was like, welcome to a special six hour edition of Sunrise!’ Hamish joked.

Zoe quickly chimed in: ‘We all actually put those [suits] on afterwards, as we just wanted to get in the water. He wore it well, I thought!’

‘That’s love!’ Natalie’s co-host David ‘Kochie’ Koch added.

In the advert, the duo chase waterfalls, go snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef and visit the stunning Kimberley region to encourage locals to explore Australia.

The commercial begins with the pair standing in front of the iconic Big Prawn in Ballina near Byron Bay, which is a hit with tourists on road trips.

‘Oh Australia, no one loves the big things more than me. The big pineapple, big banana, big potato, prawny, but I reckon we can find an even bigger big thing,’ Hamish begins in the clip, as they move from the Big Prawn to the Great Barrier Reef.

‘What about the big barrier reef?’ Hamish says as he jumps into the crystal blue water in a bright blue wetsuit.

The pair soon head to South Australia’s Kangaroo Island to eat lobster and admire seals on the beach.

They also explore the Purnululu National Park in Western Australia’s Kimberley region, and go swimming in a waterfall at Litchfield National Park in the Northern Territory.

‘You know Zo, I think Australia IS the big thing,’ Hamish says as they float in the water.
