Instant Kiwi Doug in Earth Hour

NZ Lotteries is supporting Earth Hour with a remake of the “Biscuit” commercial featuring Doug and alter ego Mexican Doug. The popular ad shows Doug in the work staff room deciding whether or not to claim the last chocolate biscuit. In the Earth Hour version, the dialogue happens in the dark, with only a candle for illumination.
