The Advertising Standards Authority has cleared an ad for the Rugby World Cup that depicts Mt Ruapehu as a giant party-popper after a complaint was submitted.

The ad shows a man and a woman on top of the mountain with the narrator saying: “One day soon, we will be hosting the biggest sporting event in our history, so ANZ bank would like to know: How would you welcome the world New Zealand?” 

The man answers “we’d make a giant party popper and fire it from Mt Ruapehu.” 

A party-popper is then launched from the crater lake. 

The complainant, a J. Milledge, argued that the ANZ ad was demeaning and disrespectful to show the mountain in such a way.

“This is a majestic mountain, a national treasure. I found the images of a massive part popper going off on its summit demeaning and disrespectful,” Milledge complained. 

“I write this as a secular, atheist, Pakeha. I can only imagine how Maori, particularly local iwi feel.” 

The ASA ruled that the scenario in the ad was portrayed in a “fantastical and hyperbolic way” and that it wouldn’t cause serious or widespread offense.

They say that the third time is the charm. Cycle three of New Zealand’s Next Top Model promises to be just as charming, dramatic, entertaining and full of surprises as ever! New Zealand’s Next Top Model returns with a brand new series on Friday, June 10th at 7:30pm on 3.

An exhaustive nationwide search for would-be models saw over 100 individuals make the Top Model short list.

This number was then whittled down to 33 finalists – who will all be competing, in a rigorous screening process, for a place in the prestigious Top Model house.

To heat things up right from the start, the 33 hopefuls will be put to the test in the sub-tropical locale of the Bay of Islands. No doubt there will be only one thing on their mind – to emulate Danielle Hayes and become the successor of the title, New Zealand’s Next Top Model.

Few can forget Danielle’s heart-warming journey last year, as she went from shy tomboy to a confident and selfassured young woman, right before the audience’s eyes.

“Watching Danielle’s transformation last year was a pleasure, and also the first step in our professional relationship,” says New Zealand’s Next Top Model host Sara Tetro. “Danielle has continued to develop as a model and has gone from strength to strength.”

“The level of talent at this year’s auditions was unprecedented,” Tetro continues.

“We are certainly going to have our work cut out for us this cycle – the determination of the people auditioning has become fiercer with every cycle.”

Sara Tetro will be joined by regular judges, photographer Chris Sisarich and international fashion model Colin Mathura-Jeffree, for cycle three of New Zealand’s Next Top Model. Each week the judging panel will be joined by a special guest judge, an expert within a certain area of the fashion industry.

What will be in store for the model hopefuls this year? Once again, there will be a host of challenges and tutorials for them to partake in, which will lead them closer to their dream of becoming a top model. Who will come into their own and find unknown talents? Who will have their dreams dashed?

Find out when New Zealand’s Next Top Model returns with its third cycle on Friday, June 10th at 7:30pm on 3.

Take a best-selling American author, her New Zealand love stories, add a German film crew and you get the spices in a hot new TV film season to screen on Stratos Television from June 1.

The free-to-air New Zealand broadcaster (via Freeview Channel 21) has a rapidly growing reputation for delivering New Zealanders a fresh TV diet.

These five TV films, based on the work of Emilie Richards, explore the realities of love, romance, and self-realisation. Screening on Wednesday nights at 8.30pm, they are in German with English subtitles.

While on a sabbatical, Emilie wrote several novels set in Australia and New Zealand.

“I get my inspiration from the lives of the people I meet, normal people who have mastered great difficulties and whose struggles haven’t brought them any kind of fame,” Emilie says. “I write for people who live their life with courage and joy, and I hope that this will also inspire my readers and viewers.”

Her New Zealand stories are the backdrop for the TV films created by German company ZDF Enterprises. The German and Kiwi crew shot the series on location throughout New Zealand with a mix of local and international actors

Carol White, sales and marketing manager for Stratos Television, believes that the stories lend themselves well to TV adaptation and show New Zealand through a new lens.

“The series is beautifully filmed and gained a huge audience in Germany thanks to the complex characters and setting,” Carol says.

The first film is ‘Days of Forgiveness’ which airs at 8.30pm on June 1. The story follows Julianna returning to Waiheke Island to get revenge on her ex-lover’s family, which drove her father to commit suicide. When Julianna comes face to face with the man she once loved, old wounds open and life gets complicated.

‘Days of Forgiveness’ will be followed up with four other films titled ‘Just Think of Us Both’, ‘Forever New Zealand’, ‘Longing for New Zealand’ and ‘Paradise at the End of the World’.

Stratos Television is an independently-owned, New Zealand media company, which broadcasts free-to-air nationwide via Freeview (Channel 21), via satellite on Sky Digital (Channel 89) and through TelstraClear cable.
