Air NZ Men in Black Safety Video

Air New Zealand have released a new safety video which features members of the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team rapping in a parody of “Men in Black”. Captain Richie McCaw and team member Dan Carter appear as “Men in Black” agents. Team mates Kieran Read, Keven Mealamu and Sam Whitelock can be spotted. Fullback Israel Dagg raps the in-flight briefing with Stan Walker,  winner of the 2009 Australian Idol. American actor Rip Torn is the Men in Black chief. 

Other international rugby stars make appearances including former England Captain Martin Johnson as an alien with horns, David Campese of the Wallabies and former Argentinean Captain  Agustin Pichot.

There is also a talking and singing pug dog!

While hugely fun, feels a little too long to me. After several flights, I may get a little tired of the whole thing.

  1. Most of us don’t fly often enough, let alone exclusively on Air New Zealand, to get sick of it, but I must admit I hadn’t thought of it in that context. I was thinking (don’t ask me why) in the context of an Air New Zealand ad (which, btw, would have persuaded me to fly ANZ!). Still, we watch the staff going through the standard safety thing every time (or should) and that is boring enough. I seem to have a faint memory that when Virgin first started their staff used to do something a little different which amused me – am I imagining that? If so, do you remember what? I have a vague recollection of the first Virgin flights being fun because of staff?
