Vaughan Smith and Bernadine Oliver-Kerby.

It's been a strange couple of weeks in the NZME carpark. War broke out between NewstalkZB breakfast newsreader Bernadine Oliver-Kerby and ZM morning crew host Vaughan Smith over coveted carpark space number 16.

The two have been racing each other every morning for the park and when Smith got there first last week he later discovered a sticker on his window featuring a unicorn excreting pink cupcakes.

He vowed revenge but before he could unleash hell, Oliver-Kerby pranked him again by attaching a bright orange road cone to the front of his car, a discovery he only made after he had driven home from work.

"Who knew one innocent little unicorn could spark such a fuss. I mean, who doesn't like unicorns and cupcakes?" Oliver-Kerby told Spy. "Neither the unicorn nor the cupcakes deserved the tirade unleashed by Vaughan. As for the road cone I cable-tied to Vaughan's car - it's a safety feature. I've seen him drive."

Vaughan enlisted his whole team to try to get Bernie back but was quickly foiled. Meanwhile, Bernie struck again, sticking an L-plate to his car.
