Air New Zealand’s (sexy) new safety video

Air New Zealand has been taking some heat for making its new safety-video a tie-in to the 50th anniversary of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue and using bikini-clad models to deliver the necessary safety information.

You can decide for yourself if they’ve strayed too far from recent hits featuring Betty White, Hobbits and nearly naked crew members, but don’t pass up the chance to enter the contest associated with the new video which is awarding five trips for two to the Cook Islands. The deadline is February 26, 2014.
