New Zealand slightly tweaks 16-year-old '100% Pure' campaign

A new TVC by the country's tourism authority shows a perpetually giddy couple moving through a series of transitions that purposely exaggerate the closeness of the nation's attractions. For example, in one transition the couple dives under water in Abel Tasman National Park on the South Island but surfaces in Lake Taupo in the north, according to Tourism NZ.

Overall, the TVC represents no real departure from past efforts, which isn't surprising given the country's success in attracting foreign visitors. The ad even shows the famous Lord of the Rings hobbit-town set, proving that the organisation knows not to mess with what ain't broke.


The campaign also highlights a new logo with a custom font designed by a New Zealand typographer and then carved into native wood by a local artist, giving it a look that is "unmistakably from this place", according to Tourism New Zealand.
