New Zealand has launched a tourism campaign exploring the reason why our country is often left off world maps.
A funny advert shows PM Jacinda Ardern and comedian Rhys Darby exploring why the nation keeps getting wiped off maps.
Over the years New Zealand has been left off maps including at The Smithsonian Natural History Museum, Central Park Zoo, Starbucks and Ikea.
“We’re a bit of a fiddly looking shaped country, a bit like a half-eaten lamb chop,” Darby tells Ms Ardern in the video.
“Perhaps people are just leaving us off, thinking we’re a mistake?”
In the end, Darby believes that Australia wants to steal their tourists, England plans to get rid of the All Blacks rugby team and the French are jealous of the Kiwi wine industry.
