Two Degrees Mobile with Rhys Darby

2Degrees Mobile Ltd suggests that in New Zealand the six degrees separation concept can be reduced to two degrees. Rhys Darby, known for his comedy role on the Flight of the Conchords, is introducing the concept in a series of television commercials. Everyone knows someone who knows someone who knows them.

Time for a light conversation? In “Chinwag” Darby tells us to get off our MyFace and FriendBook pages, stop Twatter Bleeping, and have a free chinwag with our friends on Two Degrees. Unfortunately the chinwag/chess game with Jeff the Robot ends badly… Click on the image below to play the video.

The Two Degrees campaign can also be found online at Facebook, and in sponsorship spots for Rocked The Nation, a comedy show starring Rhys Darby.


The Two Degrees campaign was developed at TBWA\Whybin, Auckland, by executive creative director Andy Blood, creative director/art director Guy Roberts, copywriter Corey Chalmers, account director Sarah Goldring and
account manager Rebecca McDonald

Filming was shot by director Steve Saussey via Film Construction with producer Sacha Hodgson.
