English Comedian John Oliver has called out New Zealand AGAIN, this time for IKEA leaving New Zealand off a map. 

Earlier this month, a Reddit user revealed IKEA had wiped New Zealand off the face of the world when a photo of the US$30 map which was for sale in Washington DC was shared.

In the latest episode of Oliver's show Last Week Tonight, he picks fun at the mistake, opening with a clip from a news broadcast outlining the mistake. 

Oliver said: "Incredibly, this is not the first time this has happened to New Zealand. New Zealand gets left off maps all the time, now, do I think that is funny? Yes, yes I do," he said.

In an effort to help New Zealand, Oliver and his team at Last Week Tonight created an image of the country which can be printed and stuck onto anything.

Posted to Twitter, members of the public are encouraged to download the image and post it anywhere they feel New Zealand is missing.
