Air New Zealand has teamed up with Hollywood actress Anna Faris and New Zealand actor and comedian Rhys Darby for its latest safety video, Safety in Hollywood.
The video, shot at Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles, explores several different Hollywood film genres as Darby tries to convince the star of the hit TV show Mom and the Scary Movie films to play a role in Air New Zealand’s new safety video with him.
“Anna and Rhys make a great comedic duo and really bring this safety video to life, entertaining customers while at the same time imparting key safety messages,” said Air New Zealand Head of Global Brand, Jodi Williams.
Collectively, Air New Zealand’s inflight safety videos have attracted more than 83 million views online and featured in international news outlets like CNN, BBC, Time.com and The Daily Mail.
“I really wanted to be part of this project because Air New Zealand has really redefined safety videos with its fun and creative approach”, said Anna Faris.
“It’s so easy to tune out when watching a traditional safety video, so it comes as such a delightful surprise when you get something that’s really fun and funny.”
Safety in Hollywood was filmed at four different sets at Warner Bros. with some of the filming locations seen in legendary movies such as Jurassic Park, Casablanca, War of the Worlds and TV series True Blood. More than 20 extras were also involved, including Chester the Chihuahua, who has appeared in Transformers and Grey’s Anatomy.
