Early next month, Air New Zealand is launching a new hand-sketched in-flight safety video fronted by Emmy-nominated American actor Ed O'Neill - of hit TV show Modern Family - and New Zealand-born actress Melanie Lynskey of Two and a Half Men. The new video features 'cameo appearances' from a range of well known personalities, including world leaders like United States President Barack Obama, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and French President Francois Hollande. Other well-known faces include All Black Captain Richie McCaw, Olympians Mahe Drysdale and Valerie Adams, television star Paul Henry and rapper Snoop Dogg. The new safety video will be progressively rolled out on all international and domestic jet flights from early July.
