Is TVNZ cursed?

It's off-putting enough to witness adbreaks on TVNZ, what with all the government ads saying I drink too much, drive too fast, smoke at all, and beat my missus (even though I'm a bachelor). But what is it with TVNZ's news sponsors?

Capital+Merchant, as well as Hanover Finance, sponsored newsbreaks for some time, as Matt Cohen points out at throng. These days, there's that spooky fucking National Bank horse before all the TVNZ news webisodes. Well whaddaya know, ANZ National's horse has just bolted.
