Sounds like a couple other NZers we know and love
Man, all three of them are such good ambassadors for NZ. Seriously, they represent their country so well, it's only no wonder all of us have made it our mission to go there someday.

Nigel â€œDark Horseâ€ Collins
In a parallel multi-verse Nigel sings in a Mariachi band. With the voice of a fallen angel he serenades saucy sweet thangs by moonlight. He wins their hearts, he loves them all, Ahhhh Nigel.
But can he play? Cello, Spanish guitar, Honky-tonk Piana, Contra bassinette and Ukulele, oh yes this renaissance rapscallion can play.
Nigel cannot be tamed. He disappears for months at a time. Legend has it he journeys to places far and wide (like Edinburgh) performing plays that he sometimes even writes (how cool is that? VERY!). We would like to clone our swarthy thespian â€˜cos we miss him when heâ€™s away, so scientists and inventors please help.
Nigelâ€™s mum says â€œhe was always a sensitive boyâ€.
Nigelâ€™s dad says â€œOhâ€¦yipâ€.
