Passengers Love Airline's Nude Safety Video

Passengers Love Airline's Nude Safety Video

By Robert Paul Reyes


"New Zealand`s national airline has adopted a cheeky way to encourage passengers to watch its in-flight safety video: The cabin crew`s uniforms are nothing but body paint.

The `Bare Essentials of Safety,` screening in the cabins of planes flying Air New Zealand`s main domestic routes, has gone viral online. It had 1.2 million YouTube views by Friday, four days after it was launched." Ray Lilley/The Associated Press

An airline`s in-flight safety video is as exhilarating as watching grass grow; I`d rather read the boring in-flight magazine while the safety video is being screened. I wouldn`t have a clue what to do if my plane was about to hit the ground -- the only thing I recall about the in-flight safety video is that my seat can be used as a flotation device.

I applaud Air New Zealand Air for thinking outside the box, and coming up with an innovative way of teaching survival techniques to their passengers.

I have seen the video and it is family-friendly fare, parents who are traveling with their children should allow them to watch the video. There are no naughty parts on display, but it`s still a fun video to watch.

Watch the video for yourself ( It`s not X-rated or even PG-Rated)
