New Zealand companies are catching some heat for selling duty-free cans of “pure fresh New Zealand air” at the Auckland airport, according to a tweet by journalist Damian Christie.
They range from $65 to $98, so not exactly a cute prank gift,”
They promise “the purest air you will ever breathe…harvested on the high ridges above the New Zealand snow line,” fetches about $100 New Zealand dollars, or $65 US, and claims to contain 130 to 140 “deep breathes” per can.
“New Zealand’s unique position in the Southern Ocean means KIWIANA AIR has crossed no major landmass before flowing over the pristine Southern Alps of New Zealand and into this can,” the package reads.
Twitter was not impressed. One guy said "Isn’t this just *really* expensive huffing?”
