Vodafone New Zealand : Hollywouldn't

A little less conversation, please.

Editor's Pick

New Zealand's favorite young star, James Rolleston (Boy), appears in a cute little commercial for Vodafone via DraftFCB Auckland, which trashes Hollywood for being full of talkers -- and not enough doers. "There's even meetings about meetings," says the young Rolleston, who gets so fed up that he shuns the fluffy pool side towels and smashing dental care, puts on his wellies, and flies home. Because in New Zealand, doers actually do -- even if the doing is something as absurd as building a robot dolphin.

There's something to be said for the actor's charm: even his America-bashing is kind of adorable. And watch out for the brief cameo from Taika Waititi, who directed Boy.
