Air New Zealand has released its latest safety video throwing back to the '90s with a cast of hundreds of local performers ranging from the Mosgiel Brass Band to transgender rapper Randa.
Air New Zealand are famously known for their innovative safety videos, and their latest 90’s rap-inspired version is certainly living up to its reputation.
The music video has gone live in planes from this morning and Hunt for the Wilderpeople actor Julian Dennison adds his comedic touch to it.
Whilst the airline has been met with criticism previously for their confusing decisions to feature world-famous actors and celebrities – who let’s face it are completely irrelevant to New Zealand – their new video released today has the most authentic Kiwi vibe yet.
Offering the best representation of contemporary Kiwi culture in an Air New Zealand safety video yet it was filmed in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin, Balclutha, Hokitika and Naseby in Central Otago.
The cast of 600+ is headlined by actor Julian Dennison, musicians Kings, Theia and Randa; plus local talent from 30 community groups across the country and Rewa All Stars from Manurewa High School.
