I quite like the Air NZ onboard safety video. The crew appear in body paint and, as you’d expect, are all madly grinning away as if they’re trying to say: “look, we’re sorry about this, of course the plane won’t drop out of the sky like a burning turd.”
They’re all white and reasonably attractive, there’s no one over the age of fourty and everyone’s trim and fit. Quite unlike the reality of this particular trip, of course, where the attendants have faces that look like they’ve been left to dry on a fence.
Having said all that, the video is miles better than the usual effort by other airlines which usually features cgi marionettes who for some reason always have faces permanently frozen in a state of surprise, as if they keep forgetting they have arms. In this case though, the video is quirky (bloke with frosted hair looks sheepish when asked to turn off his mobile) and passengers are enticed to watch by the possibility of a bit of painted nip (sadly their bits are covered by seats and carts). Although for the more desperate of passengers there’s probably enough naked shoulders and clavicles to entice a solo effort for the mile high club.
