Max Key for Prime Minister in 2044?

Max Key has dropped some early hints at his candidacy for New Zealand's top job - perhaps sarcastically - in his latest YouTube video.

Former Prime Minister John Key's signed off with his valedictory speech at Parliament last week - but is it a matter of time before another Key is in charge of the country?

"This is probably the last time I'm ever going to be at Parliament ... Until I'm Prime Minister," Max says while laughing at the camera.

In the 11 minute video he talks about his life as the son of a Prime Minister, and all the "cool sh*t" he has done thanks to his father's job, including playing golf with former US President Barack Obama.

"Most of you know my Dad as John Key the former Prime Minister of New Zealand," he says.

"But to me my Dad was just, well, my Dad."

The video shows the Key family - Bronagh, Stephie, Max and John - in rare, private and intimate moments ahead of John's final address to Parliament.

Max Key's YouTube channel has had more than 1.4 million views.
