Air New Zealand unveils new safety video!

There are a few things in life I don’t look forward to. One of them is April 15. Another is the day I have to get a colonscopy. And another is seeing what Air New Zealand’s new safety video will be like.

Air New Zealand is one of my favorite airlines in the world (you can read about one of my experiences with them from London to Los Angeles in BusinessPremier here), though their safety videos are (intentionally) attention catching and unbearable.

Their previous video featured Richard Simmons, and can be found here:

So hey, I guess it can only get better from there. Their newest safety video features Ed O’Neill and Melanie Lynskey, and it’s actually a lot more bearable than their previous one, in my opinion. You can find it here:

I still don’t find it especially edge or enjoyable to watch, but I’d say it’s a lot less unbearable than Richard Simmons! If only they would’ve cast this critter

  1. If anyone is interested, the song playing in the background is – “Punching In A Dream” by The Naked And Famous.

  2. Coins,

    Speaking of colonscopy, I’ve had two. This has become more of an old wives take when people discuss it. It’s lots of talk, but no action if you know what I mean. #overrated.

  3. In Canada out Tax Freedom Day is June 11, that’s a lot of $$$ for the Government but Colonoscopys and Heart Bypass are free in Canada.

    Did you guys notice Phil Keoghan (The host from the Amazing Race) in the Richard Simmons Video?
    He’s at about 1 min 20, and he’s hilarious.
