Green Party releases Love Actually-themed Christmas video

The Green Party has released a new Love Actually-inspired Christmas video.

The minute-long clip recreates an infamous scene from the British romantic comedy, wherein Mark (Andrew Lincoln) professes his love for a recently-married Juliet (Keira Knightley) via cue cards.

The Greens have put their own take on things, featuring MPs James Shaw, Julie Anne Genter and Jan Logie in a parody that centres around action on climate change. 

The parody opens with a knock on the door from Mr Shaw, followed by the well-known request: "Say it's carol singers."

As 'Silent Night' plays on and Ms Genter struggles to politely leave the interaction, Mr Shaw delivers his message in true Love Actually style.

"With any luck by next year," reads the first cue card, "We'll be on our way to curbing climate change.

"But for now let me say, with plenty of hope and a little bit of an agenda, that having the Greens in government will make a real difference for our environment.

"To me, New Zealand can be a world leader in the fight against climate change. 

"A green heart in Govt will work tirelessly for a NZ that finally is... 100% pure."

It's unknown whether the cue cards were recycled post-shoot.
