(Reuters) – An Air New Zealand advertisement released during the Christmas season of a week takes a dig at US President Donald Trump by portraying an American boy wearing a “Make Christmas Great Again” at others child on Santa’s “ugly” list.
The tremendous advertisers pointing to travelers with a Christmas greeting from “the nicest place on earth” see that Santa accidentally sends his 201
8 list of naughty children to a New Zealand student named Elvis Anderson instead of his fairies on the North Pole.
Sitting in detention, Anderson gets the idea of collecting the ugly children from around the world to solve the problem, and calls on New Zealand’s national carrier to help the children to transport to the summit on the north of the country.
Every child representing a country makes promises to change their behavior for the better by eating more vegetables, reducing wetness and reducing hardness.
The American boy wearing a two-piece suit and a red sloganed cap says he’s not ugly at all and is the nicest person he knows and provokes laughter from the other children, reminiscent of the reaction of Trump’s speech to the UN General Assembly in September when he spoke of his administrator’s achievements.
“I did not expect that reaction, but that’s okay,” puts the boy in the ad, the same word as Trump is used in the UN.
Furthermore, promises to be good from Anderson, including one that is nicer to the neighboring Australia, made with his fingers crossed behind his back to suggest that he does not intend to keep the promise, pushing a meter to “Nice” for the children, and Confetti rains down when they celebrate.
