John Oliver seems to be a big fan of New Zealand and keep a close eye on what's going on in the country - so now Air New Zealand has officially invited him to visit.

The airline has launched a social media campaign asking John Oliver to come "and experience us for real".

"We think it's time John Oliver goes full New Zealand and experiences us for real. At least now he knows where we are… We reckon he should host the show here, 18 hours into the future. The tickets (and sheep) are waiting," Air New Zealand posted on Facebook today.

The post also appeared on Twitter, where Air NZ asked followers to retweet it to get John Oliver's attention.

It comes after TV Host John Oliver poked fun at New Zealand after furniture company IKEA forgot to include our country on some of their world maps. 

In the past, Oliver has covered John Key's infamous ponytail incident, Steven Joyce being hit by a dildo on Waitangi Day, and the flag referendum, among other topics.
