"A Very Merry Mistake"

Santa mixes up his present orders in this highly amusing ad for Air New Zealand. Putting the Kiwi accent on trial, the film displays a wonderfully self-deprecating sense of humour as children ring the man in red to place their gift requests... only for things to get a bit lost in translation.

The comedy is spot on here, as each punchline builds on the last. There are some lovely performances - especially the elf struggling to react to the increasingly strange presents. Having a Scottish elf burst in to complain about the orders is a smart choice, showing solidarity with other routinely misunderstood accents.

Air New Zealand are known for their wacky ads (their Middle Earth in-flight safety video went viral back in 2013), and this one definitely earns its place among them. Fun stuff.

Air New Zealand aren't afraid to be quirky - and to that end, they're hoping to jump on the Cordon bandwagon and offer him a chance to take Carpool Karaoke to the next level... literally. It's a shame this viral urging Cordon to get in touch struggles to get off the ground, but the sentiment's fun and if he does take it up then it'll mean serious kudos for the airline.

Airlines have been quite slow to recognise the potential of the mandatory communication they're obliged to provide just before a plane takes off. DAVID always promises himself he's going to pay the stewards/stewardesses the courtesy of his full attention when the drill begins but his concentration has inevitably lapsed before the first mention of a toggle.
