The RadioLive interview and 3 News clip featuring John Banks make for rather comical, cringe-worthy viewing. And, as the anonymous donation saga continues to unfold, the contextual humourists at Saatchi & Saatchi and Tui have jumped on board the Banksy train with a new billboard.

So this billboard seems unlikely to reach the offensive heights of the 'Santa even likes ginger kids' billboard that was mistakenly installed in Hamilton last year, rather than inside the gates of the Tui Brewery at Mangatainoka.
