People of New Zealand

Who are the People of New Zealand in the 21st Century? This diverse bunch of characters is easily recognisable and hilariously familiar.

Sam Moore's Instagram account and Facebook page Ugly Ink went viral when he started posting images of classic Kiwi stereotypes.

They're characters that every New Zealander can relate to, including everyone's gran 'Helpful Beryl', dress code-breaker 'Wedding Kane', the forever helpful 'Office Jan', and rugged 'Hilux Surf Drew' among others.

Sam's humour in these images gently and affectionately pokes fun at Kiwi culture, providing many snorts of recognition.
