When you think of Air New Zealand, you're supposed to think about a sleek white airplane winging its way over blue waters to very, very far down under. Alas, thanks to Air NZ's media efforts, you're now just as likely to picture Richard Simmons in a bedazzled tank top or blonde Playboy models pouting.
These would be a couple of the stars of their recent in-flight safety videos and commercials, and now there's two more to add to the mix: Ed O'Neill (Modern Family, Married with Children) and Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men, Up in the Air), who lend their voices to the illustrated (!) safety video that's brand new for this season.
We'll really, truthfully miss Richard Simmons and the familiar faces of some of Air NZ's flight crew, but this fresh video has a lower potential to grate on the nerves of their frequent flyers.
Our favorite part? It's gotta be the unexpected baby talk that happens while buckling in the kiwi bird. OKAY that's all the spoilers we're spilling. ENJOY:
