Coconut Bras And Christie Brinkley

Air New Zealand's latest safety video features coconut bras and tiny bikinis...and NO hobbits!
Christie Brinkley - one of the original supermodels - features alongside four Sports Illustrated models in what Air New Zealand describes as the world's most beautiful safety video.
from Sports Illustrated 1980...
[Brinkley gained worldwide fame from the late 1970s with three consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers through til 1981. She spent 25yrs as the face of CoverGirl (the longest running cosmetics contract of any model in history), has been on over 500 magazine covers, and has signed contracts with major brands — both fashion and non-fashion. She's worked as an actress, illustrator, tv personality, photographer, writer, and designer, and as an activist for human and animal rights and the environment. Brinkley's been married four times, most notably to musician Billy Joel, several of whose music videos she appeared in.]
This video is set in the tropical Cook Islands, and Air NZ hopes it'll encourage passengers to travel to Rarotonga - as well as emphasise core safety messages. Riiigghhtt!! It'll be released next Wed.12th., to coincide with Sports Illustrated's 50th annvsy, and will be seen on Air NZ planes from the end of February.
Meantime, here's a behind-the-scenes look at its creation...
