NZ advertisements that aren’t the worst thing ever.

September 18, 2013
Advertisements are quite different in New Zealand than in the States. Sometimes they seem a lot more blunt. Frequently a bit sarcastic. They always seem a to have a lower budget (although I don’t think this is a bad thing). Regardless, I’ve been meaning for months to snap some photos of the really Kiwi-esqe billboards around town. But it hasn’t happened. And then tonight I saw this commercial, an anti-drug driving ad, and I just had to share. The message is the same as the commercials in the States: Don’t drink/drug and drive. But it’s pretty entertaining…

And another…

The billboards are also pretty good around here.

Hell Pizza ad. Wish I could’ve seen this one in the flesh…
Aw, poor Paris.

Tui, a completely shit beer, is only sort of redeemed by it’s sarcastic yeah right tui bird ads. These billboards are all over town, and have a rotation of sarcastic sayings that change every month or so…

That’s all I’ve got for now folks… I know not a real update- but hey at least its a little quirky Kiwi culture for you!

    My friends lately moved to NZ and they ‘re really happy and impressed discovering the country. Too early for the culture differences. Those ads you showed here – i like them and well.. how they say, sarcasm and irony can be used only by intelligent ones 🙂
