The flight safety instruction announcements at the beginning of every flight are pretty stale to anyone who’s taken an airplane more than once in their life. To help keep things interesting, Air New Zealand teamed with Sony Pictures and the All Black New Zealand rugby team to create an homage to “Men in Black,” and they’ve done a pretty amazing job.
Reworking the lyrics to Will Smith’s classic “Men in Black” theme song, “New Zealand Idol” winner Stan Walker and All Black player Israel Dagg rap out the seatbelt instructions and evacuation plans. Rugby legends Martin Johnson, David Campese, and Agustin Pichot make cameo appearances in the clip, as do a handful of other All Black stars. What’s more, Agent Zed himself Rip Torn shows up, and Frank the Pug has a verse all of his own. Even the lovable worm guys have a part to play, though it’s usually to demonstrate how not to act on a flight.
The graphics and details are all pretty stellar (though some of the bars are pretty slippery), so check out the amusing video below.
