Kiwi kids are vowing to do all their chores, spend less time on their phones and be nicer to Australia in a bid to get on Santa's nice list this Christmas.

Air New Zealand released its latest Christmas commercial on Friday, dubbed "The Nicest Christmas Ever". 

The video sees the world's naughtiest children unite in the Naughty Kids Summit, promising to do a number of good deeds in order to get back in Santa's good books.

The airline has a reputation for injecting Kiwi humour in its Christmas celebrations.

Last year, the airline poked fun at the Kiwi accent, with New Zealand's characteristic twang tripping Santa up when taking present orders from Kiwi children, having entertaining consequences.

The requests come across as rather unusual to Santa, with puggy banks (piggy banks), a book of magic trucks (tricks) and biscuitballs (basketballs) all being made in his North Pole factory. But nonetheless he forwards the kids' gift requests onto his elves.
