Air New Zealand has released a hilarious holiday song for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere who have never seen a white Christmas.
Irish singer Ronan Keating and rising star Julian Dennison of Hunt for the Wilderpeople fame have teamed up for the video, shared on the company’s social media pages this morning.
This is what a NZ Christmas is all about – pav’s barbie’s and jandals. Bring the sun block!
Summer Wonderland, the Kiwi take on Winter Wonderland is a cheeky ode to pavs, jandals and everything else that makes the holidays here in New Zealand special. The festive track has been changed to make sense Downunder, where “bros” are glistening rather than snow because, as Dennison says, “a lot of people get sweaty down here, it’s really sunny”. Stand-out lines include “dodging heaps of prickles with your nan” and “gone away is the greeny-brown bird, here to stay are the Jandals”. The video ends with Dennison telling the Keating he probably needs to put on 70SPF sunblock.
