Well, I have been travelling a bit and will write a few posts about that, but on my trip down from Auckland, I experienced the new Air New Zealand safety video that features the All Blacks - click on the link to see the "Crazy about Rugby" ad on YouTube.
After about 30 hours of travel and several inflight safety presentations, I have to say I was not thrilled to have one lasting longer than some flights and featuring a multitude of cringe worthy rugby puns. I did like the tongue in cheek "naked" version, but I think my AllBlackometer is still a bit overloaded after the deluge of Rexona and Powerade commercials and so I was over the whole thing after the first minute.
But I am probably in the minority, as this link kind of shows.
Verdict: I really don't make a particularly good Kiwi, I have to admit, as I have to rate this particular advertisement lowly. It's not because it does not have a sense of humour, as the advertisement does. It's not because I am suffering from a bit of cultural cringe - well, perhaps a little bit. But really, I am rating this lowly because I am getting tired of the All Blacks dominating everything in the country. Here's just hoping they dominate the actual World Cup as comprehensively. 2 emergency slides out of 5.
