Posted:woah nice one guys! looks like so much fun!!!
seeing Petey as a hood ornament nearly makes up for him not making it over to NZ.

Tho I must say that overall I think the video is kinda lacking in blasphemous poi effigies and rituals.

'Poimunion' the consumption of a piece of sock and some rice in order to become one with the Poi.
