Hey cuz. Hey bro.

New Zealand's anti drink driving advertisements have come a long way over the years.

Not sure if any of you remember the "Drunk Uncle" ad, but it certainly seemed to break through just about every shock barrier in an attempt to get people's attention. It certainly begged the question, if they have to show a small child being thrown against a wall and then slumping lifeless to the floor in order to get people's attention, how bad is New Zealand's drinking problem?

Well, if this latest anti drinking advertisement is anything to go by, it appears things have improved a little in the land of the long white cloud. It's practically a short film festival entry.

Check it out.

Ps. Is it just me, or does it sound like they are taking the piss with their accents? Deadset, he sounds like Rangi from Footrot Flats.
Pps. I resisted the temptation to write "taking the puss" above... which is commendable.
Ppps. But then I gave in.
