‘Mirry Christmus’ – Santa struggles with kiwi accent

The Kiwi accent is causing Santa Claus some serious issues in Air New Zealand’s latest Christmas commercial.

New Zealand’s characteristic twang trips him up when taking present orders from Kiwi children, and it comes with entertaining consequences.

The requests come across as rather unusual to Santa, but he forwards the kids’ gift requests onto his elves – with puggy banks (piggy banks), a book of magic trucks (tricks) and biscuitballs (basketballs) all being made in his North Pole factory.

The elves pick up that something is wrong, however, and they soon realise that, like in previous years, they’ve let the Kiwi accent trip them up. Air New Zealand staff are then called in to help.

The carrier’s chief marketing officer Mike Tod says the airline wanted to commemorate Christmas in a way that was distinctly Kiwi.

“While it’s no secret the Kiwi accent has been misunderstood at times, it’s also a signature part of our service,” he said.
