Safety in Hollywood #AirNZSafetyVideo

Anna? It’s Rhys! No the other one… Hey listen, I’ve written a safety video
for Air New Zealand and I want you to be in it. It’s like a Hollywood cop movie… There he is, the pot dealer! Kia ora – before we leave, we’d like to
remind you to obey all crew member instructions, placards and illuminated signs. We’ve got to go now!!! Loose items must be stowed in the overhead locker, or underneath the seat in front. Those are Police donuts. If the seatbelt sign were to illuminate, return to your seat straight away. Belts fit low across your hips. Keep it on throughout the flight, but should you need to get up, just lift the lever. He’s getting away…. No, no, no, no, no, no. Stop. Cut! A cop movie? Rhys, if I’m going to do a safety video, I want to a least do something that’s finally going to win me an award. How about romance? Anna, Anna, Anna! I came to tell you that… I love you I think I’m going faint! If you need some air, oxygen masks will fall down from above. Pull down on the mask, place over your nose and mouth and adjust the elastic for a secure fit. If the bag doesn’t inflate, oxygen will still flow. And remember, secure your own mask before assisting little ones. Merci beaucoup. Kiss me! If an emergency were to happen during takeoff or landing, fasten your seatbelt and place your forehead against the seat in front. Put your feet back and firmly on the floor, and hold your lower legs. If there’s no seat in front or it’s too
far away, put one hand over the other on top of your head, elbows either side of your legs, and feet back firmly on the floor. In Business Premier, sit upright, put your
hands on your thighs and your feet firmly on the floor. Rhys, stop. What? Too French? I just don’t think people are going to believe an Australian actor playing a Frenchman. New Zealand. Do you like scary movies, Rhys? Ummmmm… Oh, these woods are scary. But what a perfect place for a swim… Ohhhhh…. Lifejackets are within easy reach of your seat. Are they? In Economy class, it’s located under your seat. They’re easy fastened sitting down. Just rip back the tag, pull over your head, clip the straps together, and tighten. Pull the red tab to inflate your lifejacket,
but only after you’ve exited the aircraft. For more inflation blow into the mouthpiece. Crew have infant lifejackets, should you need them. Hahaaaaa!!!!! What? Not scary? What about now? Argggggggghhhhhh!!!! Crew are now pointing out your exits. Count the rows to your nearest exit. It could be behind you. In the event of an emergency, escape path lighting will guide you. If we have to evacuate, leave all baggage
behind. You can’t escape me, Rhys! Let’s cut to something else…. This is better……… ……Oh….. Howdy. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on this aircraft. And that includes using or charging electronic cigarettes. Draw! Eh? Draw! Or? Or what? Draw! You can’t start a sentence with or. You can end one with or. We do that in New Zealand a lot. Like, do you want fish and chips, or? Draw!!!! I’ve done a lot of gun-fighting so… Ugh. I’ll text you! Lightweight handheld electronic devices may be used at any time. These must be secured in your hand, or in a clothing or seat pocket. Stow larger devices such as laptops, in the overhead locker or in a bag underneath the seat in front. What did he say? Ensure all devices are switched to flight mode as Wi-Fi is not available on this aircraft. Feel free to use Bluetooth, but only after selecting flight mode. What? For more information, just look at the safety card in the seat pocket in front. Or ask your flight attendant. That’s it from us. From all your crew. Thanks for flying Air New Zealand. ah-ha…Classic… What? The tumbleweed thing…. Haha – it was great working with you too, Anna. Your warrior outfit?

    can't tell if people are serious or not when they comment about this being an ad, because it's not. this is airplane safety video you know like it says in the title and those videos that play before take-off…

    A little sad that people will take no notice of anything not resembling a mindless video screen. I wouldn't want to be on a flight where the most important aspect is that of entertainment. You could guarantee total panic in an emergency…… Even for those who did watch this "safety" demonstration.

    I hate flying, and I hate flight attendants. I fly a lot for work and the more I fly, the more I hate it. I would pay more … double, to be LEFT ALONEAS in don't speak to me or touch me from one side of the ditch to the other. Is that too much to ask? Clearly.

    Don't put your head between your legs because if you crash it will brake your neck so you can't sue the air line and they also do it because they want your teeth to stay intact so they can I identify your bodies after the crash.

    Thanks to the person who wrote this short, you've really got your finger in the pulse. I demand you show this to your bosses as an example of how close to the pulse you have your finger, thank you.

    tbh air NZ's company really smart about their flight safety video. From psychological side, this video make us laugh and it stimulate the brain. so when there's someone who scared to flight and stressed about it, they can relaxed and forget their phobia. Nice Air New Zealand. keep up the good work ❤

    I have to say, air nz is the best airline I have ever been on. Also, on most airlines we all zone out on safety briefings but on airnz I actually look forward to it

    @airnewzealand You mentioned where the economy class vests are located, but you didn't mention where the first/business class ones are.

    The female flight attendant was on my flight the other day coming back from New Zealand to Australia. Good to see that you give staff the chance to act.. 🙂

    I love the Air NZ safety vids but in terms of next steps I reckon they should omit the flight attendants as they kill it – too formal for the actual vid itself. I'm sure they can write the safety instructions into the script somehow.

    Went air Nz recently fucking dreadful service. Maybe they should spend more time on their customers and less time trying to be clever producing ridiculous over elaborate videos.
