Singapore-based internet service provider MyRepublic has set up shop in NZ and launched its ultra-fast fibre broadband with a TVC starring William Shatner – the only actor to spend the first half of his life building a stellar career and the second half making fun of it.
In this ad, he visits NZ from a place far away to advise us ludite Kiwis on how to find a better way.
It was shot in Sydney for K Rd-based Energi Advertising by Kontent Films (Freemans Bay).
“Kia Ora, New Zealand! You deserve [bleep] better,” the ever-amiable Shatner says in this colourful ad, which also stars a set of Dotcom triplets, a rocket, a Segway, and an awful lot of the colour purple.
