Darcey-Ray Flavell-Hudson won local fame after the runaway success of a public safety campaign that saw him eating ghost chips, and persuading a mate not to drive drunk. The advertisement attracted two million plus YouTube hits. Rotorua-raised, Flavell-Hudson had already acted in 2004 short Kerosene Creek and hit movie Boy. The long-time drummer went on to support singer Stan Walker in feature film Mt Zion.
