Melanie Lynskey & Ed O’Neill recording soundtrack for safety video

Being a person who flys quite a lot, I must admit that sometimes I find the pre-flight safety demonstrations and videos a tad boring.  Even the people doing the demo look bored, hardly any of them grab my attention.  Although I know I should be watching, all I want to do is get back to reading my magazine.

Finally one airline has decided to do something new to grab passengers’ attention, plus make them smile at the same time.

Air New Zealand, the airline that previously featured videos of body painted airline staff, has now come up with a new cartoon version of the safety video.  Guaranteed to get your interest, this new video will make you want to watch because its fun.

Fronted by actor Ed O’Neill of Modern Family fame and New Zealand born actress Melanie Lynskey of Two and a Half Men, the hand sketched in-flight safety video features everyone from world leaders and musicians to sports stars.  Trying to spot the cameo appearances of well-known personalities, such as President Barrack Obama and Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, will keep your eyes glued to the screen.

The new safety video will be rolled out on flights from July.  Have some fun and see how many you can identify.  Click on the link below.  Sandra T.
