The sick guy – Aussie rapper

How come I hadn’t heard about this guy before today? I know! It’s cos I don’t watch commercial television.

But I did catch him tonight at the end of Campbell Live. Christiaan Van Vuuren has been in a Sydney hospital since December 9, 2009. He returned from a trip to South America where he contracted tuberculosis. He’s in isolation. Poor bugger.

So, to while away his days he writes rap songs and posts them on You Tube. Campbell Live have him doing a weekly wrap (rap) each Friday night. They are very funny.

Here’s the first one he did after his quarantine:

Here’s this weeks wrap on Campbell Live.


Air NZ, Rob Fyfe and the NZ Listener

Anyone know who does Air NZ’s viral campaign work? Only reason I ask is cos it’s good.

Here’s the latest – a sign-language response to an editorial in the NZ Listener magazine where that magazine suggested Air NZ would be becoming a budget airline by joining with Virgin Blue on the transtasman route.

The Air NZ response is so simple. Plus timely given that it is just weeks after NZ Sign Language week.

BTW – the woman in the clip is Victoria Skorikova – she works at the Deaf Association headquarters in Auckland.
