The best video, period: Upper Hutt makes case for greatness to US President Donald Trump
Upper Hutt has a message for US President Donald Trump, and have conveyed it to him through a "tremendous video".
The spoof comes after the Netherlands made a promotional video welcoming the president to their country in his own words.
Created by My Upper Hutt, the video is narrated in a style similar to the US president's own and explains what makes the city so special, starting with the fact it's not Auckland.
Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy gets the next mention.
"Our leader, is very very smart, very talented. His name is Wayne Guppy, but don't let that name fool you.
"He lives in Upper Hutt, and he's not a fish. If he was, he'd be the sexiest fish you've ever seen."
The video touches on other attributes the city has, like the CBD tower, the mall, aptly named The Mall, and the swimming pool.
The response to the video had been overwhelming, and had attracted some really positive comments, acting marketing manager at Upper Hutt City Council Megan O'Connor said.
"What's great about it is we can be self-deprecating and see the funny side of what we have here in Upper Hutt, while being thankful for what we have. We can laugh at it, but still love it."
