Thor Director Taika Waititi Offers ‘Hip-Hop’ Salute to Friend Sam Neill’s Wine Brand in Quirky Endorsement
Funnyman Taika Waititi is known for his unique humor.
And the 46-year-old Thor: Blood and Thunder director was in fine form on Thursday endorsing actor Sam Neill’s brand of wine on social media.
Sam posted an image of the famous director in front of bottles from his Two Paddocks winery, praising the “hip-hop” style of his product.

Taika wore a white sweater, oversized sunglasses and a black beanie in the photo.
Sam wrote alongside the image: ‘This is Taika Waititi endorsing our wine. A single nudge would suffice. But you know Taika.
The Peaky Blinders actor, who is a good friend of the filmmaker, then poked fun at Taika’s style.
“I think he’s wearing Balenciaga,” Sam said, a reference to the famous high fashion brand. “Or Chanel,” he continued. ‘I forget.’

The star, who rose to fame after playing Dr. Alan Grant in 1993’s Jurassic Park, has since starred in popular TV series such as Rick and Morty, The Tudors and Peaky Blinders.
Meanwhile, Taika made headlines this week after crashing a live interview with fiancée Rita Ora.

The 31-year-old British singer was finishing her chat on Channel Seven’s Sunrise with co-host Natalie Barr from her home in London when the filmmaker suddenly appeared on camera to say hello.
‘Taika, get away from my shot!’ Rita said, before the couple burst out laughing.
It comes after Taika reportedly moved into his fiancee’s £8m (A$14m) property in north London.
