Hunting the One Percent’s Doomsday Bunkers in New Zealand

Hunting the One Percent’s Doomsday Bunkers in New Zealand

Journalist Baz MacDonald searches for evidence of the survival bunkers being shipped to New Zealand, while investigating the factors causing this rise in paranoia among the rich and the effect this rhetoric has on their destination of choice – the mountain resort town, Queenstown.

  2. Yunie Corn on March 5, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    mankind is so primitive and disgusting

  3. blahblah on March 5, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    The 1% have alot of money. People kill for money. The elite don’t want to have their bunkers exposed to the public. This idiot will be found dead in a ditch somewhere I’m sure

  4. E R on March 5, 2020 at 2:41 pm

    The rude woman when they knocked on the door is a perfect example of a rich person.

  5. MikeEI on March 5, 2020 at 2:41 pm

  12. MiKL PoTTs on March 5, 2020 at 2:49 pm

  13. thea lolo on March 5, 2020 at 2:51 pm

    The well of have been depending on the wrong science ! They wont survive in those bunkers ! Civil unrest may be one of the last thing to worry about – Huge planetary changes will be . They could be buried alive !

  14. Patrick Bateman on March 5, 2020 at 2:51 pm

    Can this photographer try any harder to front? Guy has his Yeezy’s and Brad bracelets on lol. Typical elitist loser

  15. Becky Buckley on March 5, 2020 at 2:51 pm

    How naive is that guylol,"ppl just wanna come here,live a good life and be good citizens.as nice as that would be,life isn’t all Rosey.

  16. MidWest Militia on March 5, 2020 at 2:52 pm

    Rising s bunkers suck ass. Get Atlas instead.

  17. BLAZENYCBLACKOPS on March 5, 2020 at 2:54 pm

    Do you know how difficult it is to get consent documentation for underground meth labs, oh my the red tape is just a nightmare, I’m obviously laying it on extremely thick at the moment for the slack jawed drooling individuals.

  18. Paleo Geology on March 5, 2020 at 2:55 pm

    DO SOME RESEARCH ON RISING S BUNKERS THESE PEOPLE HAVE RIPPED SO MANY PEOPLE OFF ITS NOT FUNNY, NOT TO MENTION THEY INSTAL PROPANE HEATERS IN THEIR BUNKERS WHICH IS NOT ONLY HIGHLY ILLEGAL BUT KILLED 3 PEOPLE IN TEXAS IN A GAS EXPLOSION. ******************** PLEASE DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING ONE OF THEIR SHIT BUNKERS!!!

  19. my opinion on March 5, 2020 at 2:56 pm

    you build your bunker under your mansion of course

  20. Leo on March 5, 2020 at 2:56 pm

    The only justifiable libertarian is one that has no one working for them. One that is totally self sufficient

  21. Akalion on March 5, 2020 at 2:57 pm

    Let them have their fucking bunkers who gives a shit…

  22. Steve Otten on March 5, 2020 at 2:57 pm

    Rising S is responsible for multiple deaths related to installing propane gas appliances into.bunkers and those bunkers exploding.

  23. Duey Jones on March 5, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    What bunker dealers don’t know or won’t tell you that any time spent in sensory deprivation will drive you bat shit crazy. Forget night/day cycles lmao. Some can adapt (like me) but most don’t survive much less strive

  24. Nicholas Rogers on March 5, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    This guys theory is that billionaires are moving to NZ after a financial collapse gives all power to the billionaires? He debunked (there are no bunkers in this video) himself within one sentence, a rare and powerful skill for a young journalist to master.

  25. BLAZENYCBLACKOPS on March 5, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    Instead of the wealthy worrying about a financial collapse that ultimately they would be the ones directly responsible for having happen maybe they should be trying to prevent such a thing from happening, just a thought. Also instead of worrying about just themselves perhaps they could try thinking about the rest of us, it really shows you their mentality, as I write this comment from midtown Manhattan a super wealthy dude just pulled his ridiculously expensive sports car into the parking garage of his building, oh the irony.

  26. LC MENDEZ on March 5, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    I just wanted some of my life on this video

  27. J. Eric Sandoval on March 5, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    The title, “hunting” gave me false hope. I was hoping for there to be a HUNT. boooooo

  28. Aaron Bertrand on March 5, 2020 at 3:05 pm

    Most boring video ever. F

  29. BLAZENYCBLACKOPS on March 5, 2020 at 3:05 pm

    Here’s the number one question everyone should be asking, do these wealthy people know something that the rest of us doesn’t? It can just be a simple fear of catastrophe happening, to literally be afraid of the rest of society like they are should be alarming to the rest of us.

  30. Leo on March 5, 2020 at 3:06 pm

    If a nuclear war breaks out those riches will be the first to die. Everyone will be going after their supplies as there will be no import. They are not part of the community so the community will be after them. They are facked either way

  31. Barbara Ellison on March 5, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    I suppose he never thought to check shipping records and construction permits. Vice, you need to hire me to sort these incredibly EASY things out.

  32. Spray Matter Productions on March 5, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    Newfoundland – Safe as New Zealand without earthquakes.

  33. MiKL PoTTs on March 5, 2020 at 3:07 pm

    let me guess. BMPCC with out a mattbox shot in BMraw?

  34. Jacob Boavista on March 5, 2020 at 3:09 pm

    Rising S are know scammers lol they have trash bunkers

  35. Caleb Hodges on March 5, 2020 at 3:09 pm

    In case anyone here actually wants to see a real decent bunker video just go look at Atlas survival shelters he is a bit more open about his designs also rising s bunkers are kinda shitty

  36. Jason S on March 5, 2020 at 3:11 pm

    The part where the guy starts pushing keys on the piano 13:35 – just utterly moronic. To sum up this whole video; dude invades peoples privacy and finds nothing in the meantime. It’s a damn shame VICE would even put their name on this.

  37. Kevin Murray on March 5, 2020 at 3:13 pm

    WTF that bunker you have a video on has FACKING propane stove and hot water? you are nuts to do that! did any one see this also?

  38. BLAZENYCBLACKOPS on March 5, 2020 at 3:13 pm

    Um, yeah consent, lol remember when the guy earlier in the video said that money buys you your own set of rules, need I say more.

  39. Leo on March 5, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    that encounter at 14:34 made me laugh

  40. Tony Beale on March 5, 2020 at 3:18 pm

    THEY CAN HIDE ALL THEY WANT , GOD IS IN CHARGE. THE GREAT WARNING THATS COMING WILL EFFECT EVERYONE WEATHER ABOVE OR BELOW GROUND.

  41. Kyle Mouttet on March 5, 2020 at 3:18 pm

    13:49 – the face you make when you realize you got baited by another BS vice video whose title doesn’t reflect what is actually in the video.
    there is not a single survival bunker (other than the fake CGI one at the beginning) shown in this video. not a single one. none. zero. not. a. single. one.
    thanks for wasting 28 minutes and 09 seconds of my time, vice.
    this is just a tour of nice filthy wealthy vacation homes on an island that not even god himself cares about. kiwi, the fruit that everyone knows but nobody actually eats, aka new zealand.

  42. xav500011 on March 5, 2020 at 3:20 pm

    Rich internet iNazis should stay in capatlist imploded rich cities like San Francisco. Instead of buying properties around the world that mostly stay empty.

  43. mark on March 5, 2020 at 3:23 pm

    Private jit…?

  44. IbleedINC on March 5, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    I’m pretty sure Anyone making over $32,000 a year is part of the "1%" lol
    Heard it in a Joe Rogan podcast. I think with Jordan Peterson. Maybe.
    If you’re still reading this, it’s no coincidence they used the word ‘hunt’ in the title lol

  45. Yuri Ivanov on March 5, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    Rich people never break the rules and take over the rules. Look at the United States 😂

  46. over seer on March 5, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    Why do you think trump wanted to buy Greenland

  47. The Riddle Of Steel Forge on March 5, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    Oh boy they’re digging a hole, must be for a bunker. So speculative typical vice.

  48. Is Not Me on March 5, 2020 at 3:32 pm

    The poor moving out of rich’s neighborhood is a wet dream for the rich.

  49. Bob Sinclear on March 5, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    Trey Ratcliffe, Nz has enough smart clever people of its own thanks, certainly don’t need any selfish ultra rich ones coming in to use us as a safety net because they have already shat in there own nest and created to many enemies!
    P. S. Just because they are very rich, doesn’t mean they are smart and clever, it can mean they are ruthless and corrupt in business actually.

  50. Joseph Buckler on March 5, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    What kind of inhuman slime can say rich people dont want to break ALL the rules? WHAT’S THE FCUKING POINT OF BEING RICH IF POOR PEOPLE CAN TELL YOU WHAT TO DO?

    Probably another Epstein.
