An airline's new video exposes the bare essentials of safety

Toned employees of Air New Zealand shed their clothes in favor of body-painted uniforms for a safety video that surely caught passengers' attention when it debuted yesterday. Here's what they saw (strategic editing and seat belt placement keep this video office appropriate).

The cheeky safety video comes on the heels of a "nothing to hide" ad campaign the airline launched in May to highlight their policy of including all fees, even for baggage and onboard drinks, in their listed prices. The commercial has already been viewed nearly 2 million times on YouTube. You can see outtakes from both the video and commercial on Air New Zealand's dedicated website.

Last year, Delta caused a stir with a safety video narrated by "Deltalina," a flight attendant with an uncanny resemblance to Angelina Jolie.

If you've seen any creative airplane videos, don't be shy—share them below.
