  • Jon Stewart would not approve of the sheep shearing.

  • I'm flying AIRNZ this year to Fiji! :)

  • Bravo!!! to PM J/Adern & AirNZ - Promo is absolutely GRAND. Im proud to be a New Zealander.

  • Great job stephen for the bungee jumping.

  • Next vacation will be in this beautiful country New Zealand, heard a lot about it but definitely will go there!

  • "small patch of product placement"" xD at least its honest

  • Fair play to Stephen for pronouncing Kia Ora correctly at the end

  • While im a big fan of Stephen, I must shit on him for a sec and say that Conan OWNS this space and this is simply not as funny. Travel content with a rich white self deprecating American host. Thatโ€™s Conanโ€™s game all day. I suggest any of you watching this to go watch!

  • I'm going to New Zealand tomorrow for volunteer work and have been pretty nervous but this along with the motivational will smith has gotten me more excited than nervous. Thanks Colbert. :)

  • 6:33 lol

  • The show runner Christ didn't wanted to jump either, so he color spray painted a doll's hair and dressed him like himself, to make Stephen think it's him jumping dressed like Stephen.

  • New Zealand has no natural predators because Australia took it all away.

  • Fair play to Stephen. That was cool mate!

  • Oh, Stephen try some things!yay!!!!

  • Sure there are natural predators in NZ, humans.

  • So funny...

  • I know this is somewhat of an ad for Air New Zealand, but it's such a good airline. My wife was 7 months pregnant on a trip back from Auckland to LA, and they emptied an entire row for her, put down pillows and blankets and basically made her a double bed in economy.

  • If you call NZ a small country, *you can call America an obese country*

  • Is it just me or he is acting like Conan.

  • There is no doubt NZ is the most beautiful country on earth ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  • How much would that helicopter run cost? and based out of where? I must go there before ice melts. Stephen looks great with sunglasses.

  • 'Active volcanoes' yeah you have no idea how active...*cough*white island*cough*

  • kills me there's no maori in any of the vids :(

    • Watch gordon ramsey hanging and cooking with maoris in the south, thats a fun video

  • Hey Conan... oh wait

  • I want Tasmania to cede from Australia and become the Wist Island of Aotearoa - New Zealand.

  • Choppy reminds me of when I asked my sister to describe a roller coaster and she made the whole thing sound worst hahahahaha I still did it

  • Man says that your heart will leap out of your chest, when he really meant his chest hair. Good God that was thick and fuzzy!

  • 7:45 I'm sitting on the damn couch and I was still terrified . . . until I saw what they did. 9:10 With the placement of his arms, I thought he was gonna zip up at that point to make a peeing gag.

  • Can we just appreciate the fact that the wonderful prime minister of New Zealand picked him from the airport

  • Kiwis ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • @ 8:49 this is the exact place where Mark Walhbergs Shooter 2007 Scene shot, I remember

  • I love how much he loves our country! Arohanui Stephen!!!

  • He should have stayed there. His ratings are so poor here. Just leave. Please.

  • Pakeha


  • Nice Colorado joke.

  • His last words though "kia ora" pure respect..welcome back anytime our friend

  • Two *fucking* 15-second commercials in this segment. I know itโ€™s not LSSCโ€™s doing, but man that sucks!

  • 2:03 well that didn't age well did it

  • hearing actvie volcanoes as a advertisement in this video makes me cringe now in light of the recent white volcano incident

    • Except there are active volcanoes all over NZ. Nobody can accurately predict exactly when one will blow. And when one does, there's nothing anyone can do.

  • shows pictures of white island at the start what he does not know it just erupted

  • So Stephen took some phenobarbital typa concoction to calm his nerves๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Stephen looks so peaceful in that final scene... must have been an amazing experience ๐Ÿคฉ

  • come to the Colorado Rockies we would love to fly you!!

  • Who *wouldnt* wanna go to New Zealand? Too bad it's literally in the other side of the world. Yours truly, Every Finnish person๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ

    • You think that's sad, Every kiwi would just love to travel to Europe. Too bad it's literally on the other side of the world ;)

  • i wonder if he went to the volcano? That was such a terrible story

  • Wtf this is basically copying conan

  • Air NZ must've paid the show a bucketload of money

  • >direct NYC to Auckland? (2/3 of the way around the world) #toofar !!

    • Try Finland to New Zealand ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • they should do more of these with other countries

    • Nah. I think Stephen is at his best in a studio.

  • You know I used to Steven is the man but now Iโ€™m saying Steven is the man

  • I just noticed. Stephen is wearing is BROWN pants to bunji jump. Good call Mr.Colbert!

  • New Zealand is just Hyrule without a desert.

  • New Zealand is defo my next vacation destination.

  • I used to buy New Zealand water from Trader Joes until I found out they have a problem with polluted water.

    • Bottled water (at least in NZ) comes direct from natural springs, so there's absolutely no problem with it. Our tap water is fine to drink too.

    • Well... Once again thankful for my home country of Finland. We can drink off the tap safely. No need for bottled water.

    • @Angela Siegfried - maybe same. Google " new zealand pollution pics "

    • Probably less of a problem than we have in the US?

  • She's been flying onto those glaciers for over 40 years? How old was she when she started??

  • Thanks for your kind words about NZ Stephen, it was great to have you in NZ!

  • Love Air New Zealand, can't wait to when the NYC - AKL route is running!

  • Okay, off to buy an Air New Zealand flight!

  • the only country i have visited outside my own is the neighboring india, but damn after this video, NewZealand is definitely in my bucketlist, i can only wish that i eventually make enough money for luxury travels like these. Great video sir stephen.
