For those of you who don’t know, the Nek Minnit phenomenon has taken off around the country, and it seems the world. Scary, since it came from a short video clip from a prominent Dunedin Skateboarder Levi Hawken.
Levi and his mate Colin made a You Tube clip. You can see the original below. It’s had nearly 700,000 views in the last couple of weeks. A few parodies are now appearing. The one above has just been created. I reckon it’s apt. No doubt there’ll be more. It’s all good fun.
I’m still trying to work out which dairy in (South) Dunedin he was standing outside when he left his scooter! Apparently there’s a range of t-shirts and hoodies being made with the Nek Minnit phrase. I guess it’s just one of those things…
The NZ Herald ran a piece today on it. Twitter has an extraordinary #nekminnit stream happening
Update: I think the correct spelling is Nek Minnit
Update 2: Vaughn Davis explains the phenomenon on Radio Wammo a few weeks ago
