Air NZ Animated Safety Video

Air New Zealand is refreshing its in-flite safety video again.
Melanie and Charlie
This time, its animated - with NZ actress Melanie Lynskey (who starred with Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men as "Rose" the stalker neighbour) and Married with Children actor Ed O'Neill doing the voiceovers. 'Spot the celebrity' appearances include cartoon US Prez Obama, Oz PM Julia Gillard, All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, rapper Snoop Dogg, Chinese TV personality Kevin Tsai and broadcaster wanker Paul Henry.
Air NZ has a reputation for often quirky safety videos, previously featuring body-painted airline staff and All Blacks players (remember the controversial "gay kiss"???). Oh yes, and Rico...hmmm, ok, let's not go there.
But thank GOD they've changed it. After dragging out the *yawn* Rugby World Cup-related video for too long - with its appearances by tv "dick-shit" Paul Henry (later edited out!) and has-been fitness freak Richard Simmons, as well as departed ABs coach Graham "I can't read a simple tv script!" Henry (no relation to PAUL Henry) - it was well overdue for an update.
The latest safety video will be on all flights from early next month.
