Kiwi hip-hop icon Parris Goebel is one of the world's hottest dancers right now.

She's worked with some of the world's biggest pop stars, choreographed New Zealand's first hip-hop dance movie and just toured with Rihanna on the Anti world tour.

Which is why her latest project is kind of weird.

The superstar has appeared in an ad for New Zealand Post, in which she and her dance crew give you the low-down on ... having stuff delivered.

Parris and the crew are still as fierce as ever, though.

It starts off okay, with Goebel saying: "What's the world taught you? For me, it's that life's about taking control, ignoring critics, pushing limits, you know - your passion."

Then she gets sassy, adding: "You expect me to what? Come to you? It's not going to happen. I dictate the rules, what I get, where and when I get it, first time."

But that's when it gets weird. Right when you realise she's talking about having parcels delivered, she spouts what has got to be the least hip-hop speech ever made, all about NZ Post's new delivery options.

One of Goebel's dancers appeared in another NZ Post video earlier in the year which said: "We've all been dancing around our parcels for years, letting them make the rules, well that's it, no more".

It's a bit of a stretch to connect the two, but hey, at it's probably still better than that time the All Blacks did the Men In Black video for Air NZ.

Or indeed, the time they especially flew in Game of Thrones' Charles Dance to make a minute-long ad.
