VIDEO: Air New Zealand pulls controversial safety rap video from planes


Air New Zealand has pulled its latest safety rap video after it received heavy criticism.


Air New Zealand pulled its widely disliked safety rap video from its planes.


Featuring local musicians Kings, Randa and Theiahe, the safety messages are sung over Run DMC’s famed ‘It’s Tricky’ single.


The video, costing $2.5 million AUD to make, was widely derided by the public.


New Zealand First MP, Shane Jones, said the video “trivialised safety.”


Kiwis across the country simply labelled the safety video as “embarrassing.”


The national carrier has listened to the feedback and said by the end of today the video will be replaced by 2016’s Summer of Safety video, featuring TV presenter Rachel Hunter.
