Ah, New Zealand air. So fresh! So clean! (So I’ve heard, at least.)
No, I’m not talking about the airline, Air New Zealand. I’m talking about air from New Zealand. It’s apparently so “pure” and “fresh” that a company named Kiwiana is bottling it up — and for $65 USD, or $98 New Zealand dollars, it can be yours.
All you have to do is be passing through Auckland Airport (AKL) and you, too, can take home a can of air that has “crossed no major landmass before flowing over the pristine Southern Alps of New Zealand.” Better yet, if you get the value pack, you’ll save a whole $20 NZD. A bargain, I tell ya.
Enchanted? Us, too. People on Twitter? Not so much.
Take Damian Christie for example:
Isabella Cawthorn thinks we have “hit peak capitalism.”
While some people argue that this may help people who live in cities with bad air pollution, it’s still air in a can — and pricey air at that. But, hey, at least you’ll get the points, right?
