Wazza from Zephyr explains

Hello to you too Heidi,

Glad you read our wee ad in the Herald and glad you did so with
interest.
There are 3 of us. We're all ex-LAPD on witness protection programmes
after playing integral roles in the John Giotti Mafia trial in the late
90's.
We all love Auckland, and in particular Ponsonby where the desperate
attention seeking and gel addiction feeds our nostalgia for Los
Angeles.
Our staff-sergeant at Venice Beach, Biff, always said we were full of
shit so we figured we could open an advertising agency. It wasn't hard,
just a few Huffer T's,
Ben Sherman jeans, Dries Van Noten shoes, a subscription to The Face
and Tosser Monthly, and a pinball machine in reception. Zephyr was the
name
of the gang we used to run with in East LA. WPD stands for Wankers
Pissheads and Deviants. So far it's been fun.

Or perhaps you'd believe...

Yes, there are 3 of us. We're all ex-Colenso, and no longer on the
witness protection programme they suggested we should go on.
The 3 - Simon Wedde, Managing Partner, and Creative Partners Quentin
Pfiszter and Warwick Delmonte. That's where the WPD bit comes from.
We've just opened the doors. No pinball machine but we do have a table
tennis table, a Swedish ball, a coffee plunger and Quent does have an
old Huffer T-shirt. We're in Maidstone St in Ponsonby. Ph 3600665. Feel
free to pop in an make use of the plunger.

Cheers, Warwick

No, but you may have seen me in a moderately successful 1988 Czechoslovakian stick movie called 'In the Back Door'.

Do you use Atomic, Sierra, or Altezano coffee for the plunger?

No reason, just being nosey.

Wazza, that was great stuff in the Czech stick movie. But I'm dying to know, did you use a stunt cock at any time?

Swiss ball surely? If not, Swedish - I'm intrigued...

Well done Wazz, didn't think they'd let you back from Greenlane actually.
