New Zealand may just have found Taika Waititi's next Boy in a heartwarming and hilarious video that has gone viral.

The video created by Kimi Ora Community School in Hastings, for a competition to win a visit from Richie McCaw, mimics the opening of the award-winning Kiwi film with its Poi E soundtrack and narration from a charming lead actor.

"Oh kia ora, didn't see you there. If I knew you were filming today I would've brung my flash shoes," he starts.

It continues with the young boy walking around his school while giving hilarious reasons why the former All Blacks captain should make a trip to Hastings.

"Richie, if you come to our school you can have one of our $1…lunches but remember you have to pay though. And if you come on burger day its $2," he says.
