August 10 - Interview porn

Nothing against The Walrus, but when it comes to a big current affairs night, where you really want to see some rich prick from the news get put through the wringer, John Campbell is your go-to guy.

He destroyed Jenny Shipley a few years ago to the point where she couldn’t continue leading the National Party, he almost derailed the Helen Clark locomotive with the Corngate interview, and although most people agreed he went too far with the Moon Man, it was like interview pornography watching him take the guy apart.

And so it was tonight, the night that Tweedledum and Tweedledee from Adidas decided to front up about the price of their All Black replica jerseys, we tuned in to Campbell Live, and we weren’t disappointed. Standing outside the TVNZ building in central Auckland – we’re guessing he had to be there to get the live post-Close Up interview – JC took the two suits apart, and man it was good viewing.

They put up a spirited defence, but it didn’t come to much. Blah blah blah, economies of scale. Blah blah blah, passionate about the brand. What they needed was some plain spoken not-from-marketing guy to look into the camera and say ‘we stuffed up’. And that’s not our observation, it’s the prime minister of New Zealand’s.

If you missed it tonight, take a look at the interview by clicking on these blue words.
