Air New Zealand helps naughty kids make nice

The airline helps kids come together to save the holiday in this charming film.

Ad Nut hopes the people at Air New Zealand will have 'The nicest Christmas ever' after making this fun film of the same name.

After an errant email from the chief executive of the North Pole spills the beans about who's been naughty and who's been nice, a group of kids plans a global naughty-kid summit to save the day. And some friendly elves from the airline help out with the travel arrangments. 

The film takes place in the same universe as last year's excellent film making fun of Kiwi accents, and as we've come to expect from the brand, it has a lot of great touches. Ad Nut particularly enjoys that one scene is an exact transcript of a recent line delivered by the US president, and that Air New Zealand can't resist throwing a little shade on Australians.
