egtmedia59Air New Zealand’s fresh take on one of the world’s iconic Christmas songs is hitting the right note with audiences worldwide, attracting 3.6 million global hits on the airline’s online video in its first day.

Summer Wonderland stars multi-platinum artist Ronan Keating and Kiwi acting star Julian Dennison in a downunder twist on the festive classic Walking in a Winter Wonderland. The track has featured in global media outlets including MTV, the Daily Mail, Mashable and the Irish Mirror in the first 24 hours since its premiere.

“Every year we’re inundated with Christmas carols about frightful weather and roaring fireplaces yet for our half of the world this doesn’t describe Christmas at all,” said Air New Zealand general manager global brand and content marketing, Jodi Williams.

“With Summer Wonderland we’ve set out to balance the scales with a song that celebrates everything that makes a Kiwi Christmas special.

“It’s exciting to see millions enjoying Ronan and Julian’s comedy duo and we hope it will inspire travellers to come down and see for themselves that you don’t need winter to enjoy our wonderland.”
