I was going to say if the video was anything like Air New Zealand's 5 minute long advert then no one would have watched the cringe fest anyway..
but having flown southwest 2 weeks ago I can tell you they still do the watch the hostie put the masks somewhere in the general area of her face...Don't touch the makeup!...
I much prefer the 45 second: belts, mask, exit, tray table go! than the New Zealand stop reading we are going to show you some stupid actor you have never heard of touring Antarctica, a couple of all blacks, and use so many local colloquialisms that foreigners are guaranteed to have no idea what we are talking about for the next 5 to 6 minutes
Glad to hear you say that. I thought it was just me but I have found Air NZ’s folksy and ‘innovative’ safety videos using ‘celebrities’ over the last few years to be smart-arsed, smug, self-indulgent, too long, and almost unprofessional as a result. Certainly make me cringe too. Like you, I would prefer a short n sharp, direct simple Kiwi approach. But I’m a grumpy old fart.
Yes. Short, factual and a reminder that its VERY important. Then its done before disinterest and distraction kick in
