The Kiwis do it again

Warning — this is not a rugby post…[1. Congrats, by the way :)]

What’s with these bloody Kiwis? They’re some of the most creative people in the world (and they have the best conferences). Seriously, the few times I’ve been to New Zealand and caught some ads on TV, or even at the cinema (I saw Eagle vs Shark in Auckland :), I have been jaw-droppingly blown away. And not that one ad, many ads. They just seem to have either:

  1. more creative talent than I’ve seen anywhere else
  2. more accepting and/or daring clients willing to go more and more left-of-field
  3. both?

…but I’ve talked about all this before. Remember those air safety videos?

Anyway, here’s the latest ad that I’ve seen which has a funny take on a serious topic. (And is it just me, or have they slipped in a reference to the original Beached Az video?)

Bravo, Kiwis. Bravo.


I just watched it again for maybe the dozenth time. Still awesome.

    Love when the dad in the film clip snaps his fingers and points at him. Subtle move, but awesome click. Word.
