NZ is in every sense the youngest country on the planet, so we're only just figuring out our national identity. Kind of like a pubescent teenager. I think. Actually I came accross the best description of the national psyche today, in a promotional release for the latest Lonely Planet NZ:
Appropriately the authors compared the national psyche to "that little guy at school when they're picking rugby teams. . .Then, when he does get the nod, his sheer determination to prove himself propels him to score a completely unexpected try.
"When his team-mates come to congratulate him he stares at the ground and mumbles `It was nothing, ay'."
And truely, the guys have captured the whole thing so well in the show- especially the whole trans-tasman rivalry thing.
hopefully more artists will get noticed away from NZ.
