No. Really, they’re wasting it on corporate tagging of no value to anyone whatsoever. You can make your own parody sign, like the one below, here and join the 7K strong Facebook group.

This ‘future evolution of the Wellywood sign‘ is pretty funny too.

    I know it’s a bit long but how about this one:

    HOW DARE THAT OBBIT JACKSON WHO LIVES OVERSEAS HALF THE TIME TELL THE MUCH POORER RATEPAYERS OF WELLINGTON/NEW ZEALAND TO SPEND MONEY ON SOME LETTERS THAT COVER UP THE REAL BEAUTY OF THAT WELLINGTON AREA

    hey thats the way its always done here in NZ. anything to waste money and show off and the infantilised post modernists now running the show are all for it!

  3. how about

    The Keydum

  4. Uhm Peter Jackson or John Key didnt tell the rate payers of Wellington to erect this side, it was the owners of Wellington Airport.

    Its a bad freakin idea and wont go ahead.

      And we know already that the workers’ rights in this country are less important than anything Jackson wants. He’s got the ear of Key and he’s got the bullying power backing of the Warner Bros corporates, just a small taste of the control that the Transcorporates get over NZ when the TPPA goes through.

      The sign’s ugly and unnecessary. Wellington in its natural green state should be the first thing visitors see on their trip to the cultural, and with a new Mayor maybe eco, capital of the country.

      The city is the place to feature the wonders of Weta Workshop and Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor’s creativity not a lovely green place.

    “it was the owners of Wellington Airport.”

    National privatised Wellington Airport. If it hadn’t been privatised, this silly idea wouldn’t be on the table.

      Policy Parrot,

      Hate to tell you but since National is in government at present not only would they have put up the tacky lettering but gambler Key would have imported some flashy and corrupt casino signage from Las Vegas. But if it was in public hands at least we would have had a say… ohh maybe not…

  6. Oh dear, Policy Parrot, your worst then Oreilly trying to tie Obama to the Black panthers.

    “You can make your own parody sign, like the one below, here ”

    There’s a bunch here too:

    What annoys me about this sign is the dishonest of it all, it should really read ‘FREE FIREWOOD’.

    SYMPATHY SHAG LIZ?

    Who is this fraking Corporate Apologist, WGN city councillor John Morrison.

    He’s scared shitless that people are voicing their anger about the sign, and his version of leadership is to let the elite sort it out while telling the people to behave and stay at home please.
