Watch: Richard Simmons Joins the Mile-High Club for Air New Zealand's New In-Flight Safety Video


Air New Zealand has released a new In-Flight Safety video conducted by Richard Simmons. Join Simmons as he takes a group of gyrating passengers (which includes The Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan) through the safety check list in only the way Simmons can.


Mashable writes: "Air New Zealand is calling the vid a 'RichRoll' and positioning itself as the kind of 'high-energy airline' that can stand up to a video of this caliber. The spot was produced by .99, Air New Zealand’s chief creative agency."

  1. I hope to fly Air New Zealand one day. Their attitude is the right mix of fun & serious and I could see their preflight briefings helping to inject some ease into their nervous flyers (I'd def be one of them.)

    On top of that, they're unabashedly diverse and celebrate it openly every chance they get. This isn't the first time they've featured cheeky gay humor - the third by my count, really.

    Good job, guys!

  3. They sure look like a fun airline! And at least people will pay attention to these pre-flight safety videos. Who knows, Naked FA's and Richard Simmons may save a life if the worst were to ever happen en route.

  4. Wouldn't it be fun if Maggie Gallagher from NOM had to fly to New Zealand?

  5. I can see it's going to be one of 'those' types of Monday. Might was well get out your party hats people, and go with the flow.

  7. Great googly moogly....Richard is THIN...what is he about 73 now? Funny video...

    Phil Keoghan is known to be h-u-n-g HUNG, too bad daddie's workout shorts didn't show more of what he has to offer!

    I just hope ANZ doesn't have an know the crazies will be falling over themselves to say it was God's punishment for embracing the ghey....

  8. This video is obviously intended to make amends for the vid Air New Zealand had to ditch because many gays found if offensive, especially the way a steward was depicted. Thank you, Air New Zealand.

  9. Successful add for Air New Zealand in my book. New Zealand is added to my list of travel destinations!

  11. That's cute - once. For frequent fliers, this will quickly turn into a nightmare!
