Men in Black Air New Zealand

The All Blacks have joined up with Air New Zealand in a new safety video that takes inspiration from the Men in Black film franchise.


Posted on Facebook, the video reproduces the style and humor of the famous 1997 movie, including the appearance of the memorable pug and the egg-shaped chairs — markers that passengers will undoubtedly recognize and enjoy while remaining attentive to the security guidelines.


The Air New Zealand spot stars Israel Dagg, Kieran Read, Keven Mealamu, Samuel Whitlock, Dan Carter and Richie McCaw.

The players are accompanied by Australian New Zealander artist Stan Walker, winner of “Australian Idol.” Actor Rip Torn, who played the role of Agent Z in the original film, also stars as the same character.

The short film will be screened in all planes of the airline’s fleet.

Air New Zealand is not the first airline to modernize in-flight safety procedures. In the spring, Air France launched its own spot under the new slogan “France is in the air,” full of humor and French glamour.
