Air New Zealand Pokes Fun At Donald Trump In Its Naughty-Not-Nice Christmas Ad
By Yoon Sann Wong, 30 Nov 2018
Air New Zealand is no stranger to poking fun not only at itself, but also others, including Hollywood, inside its ads.
This year, the airline felt particularly inspired by the assembly’s unexpected chuckle in response to US President Donald Trump at the United Nation’s summit. The reaction followed Trump’s announcement declaring the “extraordinary progress" made by his administration since he took office two years ago.
The ad, titled ‘The Nicest Christmas Ever’, sees a group of young children, each representing their country of origin, congregating in a summit to discuss how they could get off Santa’s naughty list for the year.
A young actor portraying the US leader declares during the discussion, “I have to say, I’m not naughty at all. In fact, I’m the nicest person I know.”
The assembly breaks out in laughter, to which he responds, “Didn’t expect that reaction but that’s okay.” Déja vu anyone?
