Just before their interview with Ardern, hosts Leigh Hart and Jason Hoyte debuted the new drone technology they had deployed at the Target furniture store studio.

Unfortunately the drone's rather obnoxious buzzing began to derail the election special interview.

"It's quite distracting," Ardern pointed out before Hart valiantly sprung into action.

Grabbing a guitar, the show's host viciously beat the drone out of the air, allowing the interview to continue.

However, shortly after the incident a customer browsing the furniture store took a liking to a cameo lounge suite behind Ardern, once again derailing the interview.
