'Wrong Ride'

by Syd Briscoe

'Content so engrossing it could put your life at risk' is an unusual proposition, but it's one which free streaming service TVNZ+ embraces wholeheartedly in their new ad campaign. This action-packed commercial kicks things off, depicting a bank robbery carried out by criminals dressed as hotel bellhops.

Director Damien Shatford takes things to the thriller-movie max during the film, with robbers drilling into the bank's safe and stuffing money into suitcases loaded onto luggage carts. It's only when a clueless woman waiting for a rideshare gets involved that the ad's true purpose is revealed.

Her distracted performance in contrast to the gang's flustered response heightens the film's comedy, with her sudden awareness of being surrounded by police sirens providing an extra laugh. This is entertaining work, suggesting content on the fee-free service stands up to more expensive platforms.
