    Default New Zealand Airline Issues Nude Safety Video, TV Ads

    New Zealand airline issues nude safety video

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand – New Zealand's national airline has adopted a cheeky way to encourage passengers to watch its in-flight safety video: The cabin crew's uniforms are nothing but body paint.

    The "Bare Essentials of Safety," screening in the cabins of planes flying Air New Zealand's main domestic routes, has gone viral online. It had 1.2 million YouTube views by Friday, four days after it was launched.

    In the video, three cabin staff and a pilot, all in full body paint applied to look like their uniforms, talk viewers through the aircraft's safety procedures.

    A demonstration seat belt, life jacket and arm rests are strategically positioned during the 3 1/2-minute video to protect the cabin crew's ... discretion. Passengers are shown ogling, mostly in appreciation.

    The body paint idea is also being used in a series of television advertisements in New Zealand for the airline, which include the promise: "At Air New Zealand, our fares have nothing to hide."



    One ad even features chief executive Rob Fyfe in body paint.

    "We think in tough times there's a premium for making people smile, and it gives the opportunity to stand out in a crowd," Air New Zealand's marketing general manager Steve Bayliss told The Associated Press.

    Each crew member spent about three hours having the body paint applied.



    The video needed "a little bit of a hint, but every frame has to be as modest as anything you see at the local swimming pool or the beach in summer," Bayliss said.

    After all, the people in the ads are not models or actors but work colleagues, he said.

    Even without the body paint those are great. The safety video is actually watchable. Too many of the airlines take the sterile approach to this task. I always enjoyed Southwest's approach. "If there is a loss of cabin pressure oxygen masks will drop from the ceiling. Immediately stop screaming and place the mask over your face." People listened because it was entertaining.

    can you just imagine if Continental or US Air or any other US airline did this...jeez...the outrage...the concern for children...the calls for boycotts...obscure congresspeople giving speeches saying they will seek new legislation...and on and on and on.
    Stay out of it, dude.
