Love the strong Kiwi accent on launch. If it was done in the USA, there would be all this elaborate commentary etc about what is going on etc. Kiwis just keep it simple and minimalist.

Bit late to the party but have just watched the launch. What an achievement - well done all. 

 

Great video as well.
