    I always heard NZers saying “drink-driving” but thought it was just the way “drunk driving” was pronounced there. YouTube’s (Beta) transcribe function has a pretty difficult time with Kiwi English too, apparently.

    That said, the ad is smushingly brulliunt.Report

    Everything about that ad, from the clothing to the outside walking shot to the wonderfully subtle speech style of the main actor, reminded me somehow of Northern Exposure.

    Great ad.Report
