The Gruen Transfer

OK, so it's been a while since my last post. Sorry!

Anyway, The Gruen Transfer (Wednesday nights on ABC1) has taken a little while to grow on me, but last week's was a ripper. They have a segment called "The Pitch" where 2 ad agencies compete to produce a TV commercial to sell the unsellable.

Last week's challenge was selling an invasion of New Zealand. I think the winner was 303's "100% There for the taking". I've got nothing against New Zealand, but this was pretty funny I think. Take a look.

Nice. The change of musical pace is what really sold it for me.

I'll pass the news on to a friend who's married to a Kiwi. (The same one that has your DVD.) This should go down a treat.
