New Zealand is back with its ongoing investigation into why the country is missing off world maps.

Launching today, the follow-up video features passionate conspiracy theorist and New Zealand comedian Rhys Darby and his attempt to solve the global mystery.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern returns alongside Darby, who has been on the trail for six months to solve the unfathomable question of how a country bigger than the UK could be left off so many maps.

This time, the duo is backed by world-renowned director and fellow Kiwi Sir Peter Jackson, who shares his theory that New Zealand is closer than everyone thinks – in fact, it’s in the middle of the earth.

Longtime friend of New Zealand, British rock star Ed Sheeran, makes a cameo in the video – not surprising given his recent tea and scones date with Ardern and song inclusion in Jackson’s 2013 film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

The #getNZonthemap video was created by Tourism New Zealand and is the follow-up to a video launched six months earlier.
