Three comedians take aim at election ads

Jono & Ben have in recent years become been notorious for taking a few jabs at local ads, with Vogel's spot by Shine the most recent to fall victim to the pair's satire. Now, however, they're turning their attention to the nation's politicians in a quirky spot that conflates the ads of National and Labour into a single clip. While the content is based largely off the ads of the two main political parties, it's Peter Dunne who steals the show by popping on his sunglasses and doing a great Horatio impression.  


Jono & Ben aren't the only Three comedians to have taken aim at the pair of political ads. Earlier in September Josh Thomson also had a go, serving first as Jacinda Ardern's driver before trying his utmost to keep up with the National jogging crew.
