CARTOON: SIR PETER JACKSON’S KNIGHTHOOD
Only in New Zealand would a cartoonist like Guy Body make light-hearted fun of the Knighthood honors being bestowed on Hollywood Oscar winning great, Sir Peter Jackson.
Author of the Oscar nominated, Whalerider, Witi Ihimaera, was even funnier though when it was announced that he would be awarded his Knighthood last year for services to the arts as a bestselling author of amazing stories starring Maori characters.
He said “No thank you, it would be a joke if I took one of those.” He didn’t want it.
Love it. The Kiwi sense of humor is the best! Nice job Guy Body. I like the way Jackson’s zero budget, early early films are being showcased here in this cartoon like Braindead. Quirky and dark comedic films. Watch them if you haven’t yet already.
Again… congrats Sir Peter Jackson. :)
