Disastrous office chair causes chaos in new NZI ad

It’s been nearly a decade since NZI first released its now iconic advert, ‘Everyone’s always stealing your stuff’ and now the expert business insurer has finally returned to Kiwi screens with a new animated offering.

In place of the infamous thieving hand – the star of NZI’s last ad – is a troublesome office chair that causes havoc as it moves from business to business in the fictional town of Port Avon.

The message is simple – bad luck isn’t going anywhere and neither is NZI; the insurer that backs the most businesses in New Zealand.

If you haven’t yet caught it, or just want to see it again, you can check it out here.  You can also revisit NZI’s ‘Everyone’s always stealing your stuff’ ad here.

    • Hi Ross,

      Many thanks for your question. It’s the theme tune from the movie ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’ and is by Ennio Morricone. The version in the ad is not the original though – we re-recorded it.
