Leave it to Air New Zealand, the king of hysterical safety videos, to do it again.
This time, the airline has teamed up with the All Blacks, the nickname for the country’s famous rugby team, for a spoof on the movie “Men in Black” in its latest safety video.
The latest safety installment features All Black’s Captain Richie McCaw and Dan Carter as Men in Black agents. Starring alongside the two long-serving All Blacks is Coach Steve Hansen, teammates Kieran Read, Keven Mealamu, Sam Whitelock and Israel Dagg who gets to test his vocals alongside Kiwi musician Stan Walker.
American actor Rip Torn reprises his role as Chief of the Men in Black with Wallabies great David Campese, former England Captain Martin Johnson and former Argentinean Captain Agustin Pichot making cameo appearances.
The video was created in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment's Content Licensing group, with additional support from Sony Pictures Imageworks and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Archives & Collections.
“The creative concept and the parallels drawn between the All Blacks and the Men in Black are really clever. It’s been exciting to help Air New Zealand bring the Men in Black universe to life in this unique way,” says Emmanuelle Borde, Executive Vice President, Sony Pictures Entertainment.
