The first Labour Party campaign ad for 2017, explained

Andrew Little just talks naturally to New Zealand in the party’s first ad ahead of the election. Toby Manhire dives deep and scrawls captions on top of their captions.

The National Party had its “Let’s Get Together” jingle, which we deconstructed using science yesterday. Today it’s Labour turn, with their “Fresh Approach” debut video ad.

First, the video as produced; below, the Spinoff caption remix.


Watch our captioned version of National’s ad here; next, the Greens’ effort.
