Never, ever, lose your biscuit.
Steve Hansen is set to star in his very own movie thanks to a new marketing campaign by snack specialists Arnott’s.
The premise of the film is that New Zealand has fallen into chaos following the loss of some of Arnott’s most beloved snacks – such as popular supermarket items Shapes, Tim Tams and Cruskits. (Anyone that was on the Lions tour will be all too familiar with a packet of Tim Tams.)
Current and former All Blacks Ma’a Nonu, Julian Savea, Victor Vito and Israel Dagg feature as their cartoon selves in the trailers.
Hansen said the opportunity to do something different was a pleasant experience for him.
“I thought it would be fun and totally different, outside my comfort zone,” he said.
“It was an opportunity to be coached by someone else and learn coaching techniques to take into my own arena. It was a total role reversal.
“I was being coached on how to speak, act, and play a role. I found it invigorating and energising because it was a totally different environment.”
Apocalypse Steve Hansen – Don’t Lose Your Biscuit will screen at Hoyts cinemas in NZ on November 2017. If the trailers are anything to go by, this should be a hit! 😂
