Video: Richard Simmons Rocks it with Air New Zealand

Silly, silly Air New Zealand. First they show a safety video with flight attendants with no clothes. That wasn’t crazy enough, so they introduced the furry dude, Rico with a sexually-off language barrier. Now they are kicking it with Richard Simmons and boy do I love it!

The video is made of of a combination of Air New Zealand cabin crew, some fitness instructors, Mr. Simmons, Amazing Race presenter Phil Keoghan, New Zealand TV personality Paul Henry, Silver Fern Temepara George and even Air New Zealand’s CEO Rob Fyfe. With over 1.1 million views at the time of posting, I would say love it or hate it, the video has been successful.

Some feel that “fun” safety videos and presentations are not appropriate for such a serious subject. However, it will get people’s attention. “Safety is paramount and non-negotiable at Air New Zealand, and Fit to Fly will again get our passengers sitting up and taking notice of these important pre-flight messages in an engaging and fun way,” says Mr Tod.  “Simmons’ fitness moves will definitely ensure that all eyes are on the safety briefing.”

It appears that they used a mock Boeing 787 Dreamliner to film the video. If you think the actual video is fun, be sure to check out the behind the scenes video which is even a bit more fun.
