Not as Lame as It Sounds: Air New Zealand Trusts Bear Grylls to Teach In-Flight Safety

February 27, 2013 at 9:49 AM | by | ()

Well, the mega-creative folks behind the quirkiest airline safety videos have struck again. Air New Zealand has put up a brand new, themed video and this one is an excursion you won't forget. Bear Grylls climbs mountains and floats down raging rivers all the while showing us how to have a safe flight.

We would agree that flying can be an adventure and with Bear walking across our person television screen, we would be able to relax a bit more knowing he is looking out for us. Taking in-flight safety out of the cabin and into the rough world, the Man vs. Wild star gets his hands dirty and gallivants all over the South Island's Routeburn Track, hunting for the ancient Moa.

In true fashion, Bear gets cheeky and naked (of course), and still shows us the 'Bear Essentials'—how to buckle your seatbelt and find your life-vest. With few better backdrops, this is video that will not only get us longing for some fresh air and mountain views, but will also teach us not to use the oxygen mask as a hiking toilet.

But wait, there's more! If you head on over to the Air NZ website to watch the video, you'll be in the running to win a trip to New Zealand from anywhere in the world as part of the Great Kiwi Bucket List. Winners will jet down to Kiwi-land on a 10-day tour and pick from six outdoor activities, ranging from underwater tube rafting through the Waitomo glow worm caves or soaking in your own natural hot pool at Hot Water Beach and everything in between. Let's just hope your seat mate on the way down is a bit cleaner than Bear.
