Fun, new videos from Air New Zealand and British Airways

Air New Zealand, which brought us highly entertaining in-flight safety videos featuring flight attendants dressed in nothing but cleverly applied paint and that pixie-ish, always-exercising Richard Simmons (both videos below), now brings us another version of this in-flight necessity.

It’s definitely not as titillating at the “Bare Essentials” video (below), but it is sort of cute and has ‘guest appearances’ by Snoop Dogg, President Obama and others.

And, here’s a fun video made by British Airways (set to “London Calling,” by the Clash) urging locals NOT to travel during the London summer Olympics.

And, as promised, here are those earlier Air New Zealand videos.

And, because we don’t have Rico around any more (Air New Zealand killed off this cute, but somewhat creepy puppet) here’s the safety video Rico helped out with.

Here’s a great slide show: Singers at airports.

66 (!) photos of singers – and a few actors – arriving and departing at airports. It popped up in a variety of on-line places this week and I can’t quite tell which one of these images are my favorite.

Bing Crosby in London in 1965…

Mick Jagger – in a lovely checked outfit – and Marianne Faithfull in 1969

Or Snoop Dogg arriving earlier this month at Heathrow Airport.
