Cribb and Naufahu to get wild in town
Feilding local internet sensation, William (Waiirua) Cribb and Game
of Thrones star Joe Naufahu are coming to Feilding’s Wild Wild West Rural Day.
Joe, played the role of Khal Moro, head of the Dothraki tribe warriors in the international blockbuster Game of Thrones, one of the most watched television series in 170 countries, with a cult following worldwide.
William is a hot social media star boosting morale with his own brand of humour. His wicked sayings and quirky dance moves are being copied by followers all over the globe.
Together they’ll be mixing it up at Rural Day on Friday October 13.
William will no-doubt bust out his moves in his trademark cyclops glasses and get on his ‘Tuck in Fri’.
They’ll be at the Farmers’ Market for a cook off that’ll be sure to bring a laugh.
With over 50,000 followers on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, William is the hottest social media star in New Zealand and has hit over a million views for his TVNZ interview.
Using just his phone, William creates a ton of fun with whanau, friends and followers while boosting morale and pumping a little zest into people’s lives.
The proudly born-and-bred boy from friendly Feilding was snapped up by the Government for their edgy campaign #FFSVote.
The campaign, For Future’s Sake Vote, targeted young voters to enrol and vote to improve the poor statistics of the 2014 election where only half of young Maori between 18 and 24 voted.
He’s also hooked up with ‘Got a Trade’ who are working hard to engage with as many youth in New Zealand as possible, and encouraging them to try a trade.
Some of our biggest sport stars are busting out William Waiirua’s moves on the field and on line. Our sevens, NRL teams and All Blacks, have been snapped doing his signature moves.
Joe was a professional rugby player who lined up for the Canterbury Crusaders and a representative in New Zealand’s under 19s and 21s teams, before
an international move to play for Leicester Tigers in England, and Glasgow Warriors in Scotland.
A knee injury brought his sporting career to an end and his career move into acting started.
The tough and physically fit Joe has featured in both movies and TV, including The Market, Go Girls and The Kick.
He played Liscus in the TV series Spartacus and starred in the feature film drama The Last Saint alongside Scarlet Johansson as Police Commander Johns in Ghost in the Shell.
His latest TV role has just ended with the series School of Training, a fitness competition show like no other, where the winner lands a job at Joe’s gym.
Joe played himself in the Maori Television reality show. It was based around the style of exercise practised at the gym business he has owned since 2010 called Ludus Magnus School of Training.
Track ‘em down at the Wild Wild West day and if you don’t know already what the ‘Tuck in Fri’ is, be sure to ask William Waiirua all about it.
