Prince Harry has been ripped for his acting skills in a new advert. Check it out here:
Since quitting the monarchy, the 37-year-old has been trying his hand at plenty of new things - but it seems like his acting may need a little work.
The Duke of Sussex appears alongside Kiwi Rhys Darby in a skit to promote a new eco-friendly travel scheme, operated by his non-profit company Travalyst.
In the video, he can be seen jogging in a 'Girl Dad' t-shirt, before 'rating agent' Darby chases after him and accuses him of dropping a sweet wrapper during a previous trip to New Zealand in 2018.
Harry seems perplexed by the whole thing - but also very wooden. Painfully wooden.
Fair play to him for putting himself out there and trying new things, but a lot of viewers reckoned he might cringe when he watches it back.
One person wrote: "Oh gees I can just picture William with his head in his hands cringing."
Another wrote: "It's excruciating. You just know he's going to look back one day and cringe."
A third added: "#PrinceHarry tries his hand at acting in bizarre skit - what a total fool."
While a fourth said: "Oh my god this is awful.
"Prince Harry appears in some badly produced infomercial on sustainable tourism, except it's so poorly produced you have no idea what’s actually going on."
The Duke spoke about the project in an interview with Maori broadcaster Te Ao with Moana.
He said: "Every year more and more of us want better options for sustainable travel.
"For the first time Travalyst is striving to make that a reality for everybody who wants to support local communities through kaitiaki (guardianship) and looking after nature and wildlife."
He added: "For our first campaign we are looking to flip the script. We are always being asked for our feedback on our trips and experiences – but what would happen if our holiday rated us?"
Led by Harry, Travalyst is a non-profit organisation 'working to identify – and help bring about – the systemic changes needed in order for sustainable travel to be taken out of the niche, and into the mainstream'.
Its website reads: "We believe tourism can, and must, play a key role in achieving a sustainable future for our world; so we’re convening the key players, and catalysing the necessary action, to change the impact of travel, for good.
"We are committed to being a driving force that redefines what it means to travel, helping everyone explore our world in a way that protects both people and places, and secures a positive future for destinations and local communities for generations to come."
