Air New Zealand launches hand-sketched celebrity safety video

Air New Zealand has launched a new inflight safety video, following the success of previous, equally unique videos.

The latest film features Snoop Dogg, Barack Obama and the Queen, amongst a host of other hand drawn celebrities, and has been fronted with the voices of Emmy-nominated American actor Ed O’Neill and New Zealand-born actress Melanie Lynskey.

The safety video launches onboard in early July and will be progressively rolled out on all international and domestic jet flights.

To further promote the airline and the new video Air New Zealand has also launched a competition where people who identify more than five of the celebrities in the video can win an around-the-world trip for two.

Chris Myers,Air New Zealand’s general manager for Europe, has said the latest safety video is the airline’s first foray into a sketched and animated format: “We’ve previously featured body-painted airline staff, the All Blacks and fitness guru Richard Simmons in our videos which have attracted more than 20 million views online.

"This time, we’re taking the opportunity to highlight the global reach of our business and to recognise world events and celebrities in a uniquely Air New Zealand way. That’s why customers will see world leaders who feature in election processes this year, Olympians competing to prove they are the best in the world, our All Black Captain and A-listers who are big in their markets today,”
