This commercial on behalf of ALAC, the Alcohol Advisory Council, was written in 1998 by the then up-and-coming comedian and musician Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords). It cleverly uses humour to mock Kiwi attitudes towards binge drinking, with two young men attempting to one-up each other on how "trashed" they were the previous weekend.
It was written for the 1990s alternative music radio network Channel Z and won Best Radio Commercial by station writers or staff at the 1999
New Zealand Radio Awards.
