New Zealand Disappearing From World Maps?

Today’s viral video

This story appeared today in the New York Times. Apparently world maps displayed at New York City’s Smithsonian Institution, Central Park Zoo, Ikea and Starbucks failed to include New Zealand which is home to nearly 5 million people. Word quickly got back to New Zealand causing a “scandal.”

New Zealand’s tourism office quickly put together a video featuring Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern freaking out over the matter. New Zealand government agencies have been creating videos using comedy to deal with serious topics such as racism, drunk driving, homophobia, etc.

Maybe we should try this in the US!
