New Zealand launches its first rocket - with a great sense of humor

I just have to say that I have a whole new appreciation of the people in New Zealand. Not only have they launched their first rocket - way to go! But it's their sense of humor that is really amazing.

The name of their first rocket ever:
”It’s Business Time”

There might be some people in the forum not getting the humor, so let me walk you through it:
  1. New Zealand have two music artists, Jemaine and Bret, known for making a TV show that was an international success. The show was called Flight of the Conchords, and you can find more information about it on the IMDb page, for instance. (I can strongly recommend it, very funny!)

  2. Each episode of that show had a song in it. The songs were always different genres (they are very talented), and one of the most famous songs is called - you guessed it - It’s Business Time. And thanks to the YouTubes I am glad to link to that song, as presented in the TV show:

Like I said, one has to love the people in New Zealand to that thought to name their first rocket after this song. :D

(And here is an article, for those wanting to read more about the rocket.)
