Christmas ad for New Zealand airline shows mini-Trump on Santa’s naughty list

Air New Zealand

A new Christmas ad released for Air New Zealand on Thursday pokes fun at President Trump, showing an unrepentant American child in a “Make Christmas Great Again” hat on Santa’s “naughty” list.

The three-minute promo shows Santa Claus accidentally emailing out the confidential “naughty” list to a student in New Zealand instead of the elves at the North Pole.

{mosads}Naughty kids from around the world gather for a summit organized with the help of the airline. They promise to be nicer and do good deeds next year, like eat more vegetables or a “30 percent reduction in hair pulling.”

The “naughty” kid from America, however, is reluctant.

He is dressed like Trump, wearing a two-piece suit and one of his signature red campaign hats.

“I have to say, I’m not naughty at all,” the mini-Trump brags. “In fact, I’m the nicest person I know.”

The group of kids at the summit burst out laughing, similar to when Trump was laughed at by world leaders at the United Nations.

“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said to chuckles during his September address to the U.N. General Assembly.

The Trump kid in the commercial then uses the same line as president, “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK.”

The group of kids are worried by the American’s reaction, which causes the “nice” meter to freeze until the kid from New Zealand promises to “do all our chores, spend less time on our phones and be nicer to Australia.”

Confetti goes off and the children celebrate as New Zealand’s vows bring them all back to Santa’s nice list, with no help from America.
