Air New Zealand has a long heritage of movie tie-ins (The Hobbit etc.) and slightly wacky safety videos, but this latest one goes a step further…
Air New Zealand has teamed up with Hollywood actress Anna Faris and New Zealand actor and comedic legend Rhys Darby for its latest safety video, Safety in Hollywood.
The video, shot at Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles, explores several different Hollywood film genres as Darby tries to convince the star of the hit TV show Mom and the Scary Movie films to play a role in Air New Zealand’s new safety video with him.
Safety in Hollywood was filmed at four different sets at Warner Bros. with some of the filming locations seen in legendary movies such as Jurassic Park, Casablanca, War of the Worlds and TV series True Blood. More than 20 extras were also involved, including Chester the Chihuahua, who has appeared in Transformers and Grey’s Anatomy.
See what you think:
Yeah, right… Will anyone remember the safety tips in amongst all those references and quips? Not so sure!
One comment I did have is that they do make it very clear that Bluetooth use is acceptable even if wifi and cell radios need to be off. That’s better than with a lot of other airlines.
As an aside, Air New Zealand have some great fares to Los Angeles right now. Worth checking out for sure…
