When your friend in the legal community with Kiwi connections sends you a video, you stop making your way out the door, grab your laptop (cause video will annihilate your prepay data plan) and hunker down.

This House of Cards parody does not disappoint. It’ll be old hat to Kiwis (it went on YouTube last year), and very amusing to DC types and those who binge-watch Netflix.

A Kiwi law student with a decent Kevin-Spacey-in-the-Lowcountry accent, cutthroat rivalries, and a local political newscaster telling said student he doesn’t give a s**t about law society, all set amongst Auckland.

I shed a single happy tear for this brilliance. Hope you enjoy it. H/t to friend who sent this along.
