For Mitre Hardware. Transcript in case you’re having difficulty with the accent:

“What’re you doing this weekend?”
“I’m putting up a retaining wall.”
“Doing it yourself?”
“Nah. I’m gonna get some bloke in.”
“Aw, c’mon, mate, do it yourself.”
“She’s pretty big job…”
“Aw, you’ll be right.”
“We can knock it over in half a day.”
“Get a couple mates round!”
“Hey Jonesy!”
“Give us a hand on Saturday!”
“Mate! You’re dreamin!”
“No surprises there.”

And “DIY” stands for “Do It Yourself,” which is pretty much the Kiwi Bloke Mantra.
