Here are some of the best.

And, as part of a campaign to thank Sunday morning shoppers for taking the ethical option and supporting farmers in developing nations, All Good Bananas has employed the typically over-enthusiastic services of Guy Williams.

'Don't be like Guy Williams. Do something with your life'

The One Percent Collective, which aims to create "a seismic shift in charitable giving in Aotearoa", has already chalked up a few celebrity endorsements, with Dai Henwood, Conrad Smith, Kimbra and many others contributing to its first magazine, The Generosity Journal. And now 'local craplebrity' Guy Williams is helping out by imploring punters to do something good for a change and apply for the newly created chief digital storyteller role. PLUS: six more charities set to be added to the flock.

Slingshot tries to turn Sky, TVNZ and MediaWorks advertising snub into marketing coup—UPDATED

Yesterday, Slingshot sent out a release to the media saying that Sky had taken the "unjustified and petty" step not to play any ads from the internet service provider (ISP) that feature references to global mode, a new service that hides the IP addresses of users and gives them access to international video streaming websites such as Netflix and HULU. And now, in a follow-up announcement, Slingshot has confirmed that TVNZ has followed suit by also pulling the plug on ads that reference the controversial service that was unveiled a few weeks ago.
