We are big fans of Vice, so it's very cool to make it onto their website. They covered Adulttoymegastore's endorsement of Hihi for the New Zealand Bird of the Year.
Their story covered New Zealand's second most important election this year: Voter Fraud Rocks New Zealand's Bird of the Year Competition.
This year’s polls have also seen certain nominees attract endorsements from unlikely commercial sponsors, with New Zealand’s Adult Toy Megastore pledging their support for the hihi: a “polyamorous, sexually fluid bird with big testicles” that is also the only bird in the world to mate face-to-face.
“We are proud to endorse the hihi for bird of the year 2020,” Adult Toy Megastore said in their endorsement. “Hihi lead the sex positivity movement among songbirds and for that we salute them and say to you: VOTE HIHI.”
“Male hihi have testicles four times larger than they should be making them, by size, the largest testicles on a bird in the world!” they added. “How could you not vote for them?”
