If there’s one thing that Kiwis and Canadians have in common its a reputation for being polite to a fault. And if a recent spot released by JWT for the Canadian Film Festival holds any semblance of truth, then it appears that this stereotype also applies to the undead.
Throughout the nearly three-minute spot, a polite zombie, who just happens to be Canadian, attempts to make it big in the USA. But every time he’s cast into a role, his inner Canadian overpowers his outer zombie, leaving directors disappointed in a performance that veers too close to nice.
Eventually, he learns to overcome the encumbrance of mannerly behaviour and he makes it big—thereby proving that actors can be great, even if they happen to be ridiculously polite Canadians.
