Air New Zealand Releases New "Men In Black" Safety Video

13 August 2015

Renowned for its creative and entertaining in-flight safety videos, Air New Zealand couldn't let the upcoming Rugby World Cup 2015 pass without giving the world another inspired gem.

The remixed version of the original Men In Black theme song is Weird Al Yankovic-esque in the way Air New Zealand delivers the necessary safety messages via raps by charismatic performer, Stan Walker and All Black, Israel Dagg.

Tying in with New Zealand's upcoming Rugby World Cup 2015 campaign, the new video also includes cameos by All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, coach Steve Hansen and other notable players.

You might also recognise a few other Rugby Union legends who make appearances throughout, along with some characters from the Men In Black films.

Well played Air New Zealand. You may be winning the in-flight safety video competition, but the World Cup is yet to be decided.


Rugby World Cup packages can still be purchased through your local Flight Centre store, by contacting a travel representative on 133 133, or by securing tickets and accommodation online.

I love the kind of travelling that is one part strategic planning and two parts spontaneous adventure. Whether I'm exploring my local city or a small town in the middle of nowhere, I'm always hoping to find something no one else has discovered.
