We wrote about Steinlager Pure, DDB and Taika Waititi’s new campaign on Friday, but had to wait until Sunday to see the ad, sandwiched as it was between Tom Scott and Plaza director Paul Middleditch's very good Separation City on Sunday Theatre.

Suggestions for the next local Steinlager Pure frontman welcomed.

Invercargill is well known for its wide 'Parisian' boulevards, infamous mayor, the world’s Southern-most McDonalds (we think), an abundance of oysters and cheese rolls, as well as the highest incidence of R-rolling in the country.

Designer Tim Christie talks us through the Invercargill brand’s new “stoic” look and feel.
