Henwood heats up in Carter/Fleming parody

Dan Carter got a bit of grief when he was somehow turned into a slightly creepy wallflower for Daikin heatpumps. And Stephen Fleming is well renowned as the diving spokesman for Fujitsu. Now "New Zealand's number one selling wood fire" Metro Fires has combined the two with a parody ad featuring Dai Henwood.

Operation disappear Dan

Due to moderately popular demand, our immature penchant for photoshopping heads onto different bodies and a desire to help New Zealand come to terms with the crushing loss of our broken talisman, we've decided to 'disappear' Dan Carter, just as our quarter final opponent did in the 1970s and 80s. Piri Weepu looked good as a Daikin heatpump. So here's how Colin stacks up as an off-field replacement.

A nation mourns...

Like many New Zealanders gagging for a long-awaited Rugby World Cup victory, the news that Dan Carter was out of the tournament with a groin injury that obviously came about because it was poisoned by the South Africans ripped our knickers and left a gaping void in our now husk-like hearts. As a very valuable marketing property, many of the brands he endorses, such as Jockey (maybe he should've been kicking commando, a la Andre Agassi?), Daikin and Philips, will also be devastated. Before the injury, seeing him on TV or half-nude on a massive billboard was a reminder that our hero was here to vanquish the enemies. Now they only serve to remind us of what we have lost and could forever be linked to pain and suffering. So, for the nation's good, we propose taking the Stalinest approach and changing history by modifying all marketing campaigns featuring our man Dan. To start the ball rolling—and in honour of the tweet that said "serves him right for being a heatpump"—here's what we think his ideal replacement would look like in the role. Interestingly, Piri doesn't look quite as creepy.

Dan Carter pulls out the razor and shares different side

We know this much about Dan Carter: He likes heat pumps and certain brands of deodorant and underwear. He’s also an awesome first five-eighth. And now in his latest foray into sponsorship territory as the brand ambassador for Philips electric shavers, we’ve been told a different side of the All Black will be revealed.

Meet Dan Carter, the slightly creepy heatpump-selling wallflower

Dan Carter is a marketer's dream. He comes across as a fairly nice chap, he's well-spoken, he doesn't get into drunken brawls outside bars, he's bloody good at rugby and, as evidenced by the fact the E channel voted him the third sexiest sports star in all the world and Jockey chose him to model their gruts, he's easy on the eye. But Daikin and its agency The Works have somehow managed to make him look creepy in their new TVC by sticking him on a wall, making him perform the role of a heat pump and having the female talent make googly, come hither eyes at him.

All Blacks press the flesh, Dan's pressed flesh gets brushed

Ah New Zealand, what an egalatarian paradise you are, a place where you can shake hands with the Prime Minister without fear of being tackled by secret service agents, where anyone can play golf, squash or tennis without being harrassed by bogans for being an aristocrat and where an All Black can deliver your mail and make you a cup of tea.
