Home improvement retailer Mitre 10 drew upon the natural banter between kids, a Kiwi love of DIY and a fail-safe dig at the Aussies to make this hugely popular TV commercial. Benjamin Counsell, Reuben Powell and Phoenix Flack were the four-year-old stars of the playground shoot. Flack had the difficult role of Aussie DIY sceptic Jonesy, whose legendary line "you're dreaming" was inspired by 1997 Australian comedy film The Castle. The commercial was produced by advertising agency FCB and in 2009 won Fair Go's coveted Best Ad gong in its annual award show.
