A humorous satirical clip of English comedian John Oliver, sarcastically mocking the PM, kiwi accents and the flag debate was aired on US television.
Our silver fern flag was on display to an audience of about 22 million people.
The Silver Fern on black was compared with the flag of ISIS.
John Henry was cameoed offering his predictable opinion - but we all know his opinion doesn't count for much.
The result is, more people are becoming aware of the design with many commenting online that if the design were updated, they would like to see it changed to this design, thereby proving that thanks to John Oliver any publicity is good publicity!
