US shipping company FedEx is currently running an ad trumpeting its role in ecommerce. New Zealand makes an unexpected appearance in the commercial – and the result is confusing to say the least.
The ad starts in a small business in the US with a couple talking about all the places to which they are sending their goofy glasses.
Canada and Ireland are both mentioned, before one of the protagonists mentions New Zealand.
From here, we’re taken to what is supposed to be the Kiwi wilderness, where two hunters are on the lookout for deer. And what we get next is without a doubt the worst Kiwi accent you’re likely to hear for a long time.
On the bright side, at least the ad shows that our conservation efforts are going well (regardless of how unconventional they might be).
