The Herald reports:
Air New Zealand is pulling its controversial safety rap video from planes and replacing it with a previous version after heavy criticism.
The video, which features local musicians Kings, Randa and Theia rapping about plane safety over beats from Run DMC and Sisters Underground, is being removed from flights at the end of today.
In its place, a previously released safety clip called Summer of Safety starring Rachel Hunter and used in 2016 would screen in its place.
Air New Zealand says its decision is based on a new campaign to stimulate domestic travel and promote tourism to Northland.
That safety video was terrible. I’ve liked or even loved most of the Air NZ ones but the rap one was unwatchable it was so bad.
May it never be seen again.
