Air NZ safety vid provokes terror in the skies

'You're a giraffe!' wails prancing fitness guru

Yes, you're a giraffe, enthuses Richard Simmons – the US weight loss and fitness guru seen here in his traditional attire of stripey shorts and Swarovski crystals.

We suppose, in a world-weary kind of way, that Air NZ is to be applauded for making some attempt to inject a bit of fun back into flying, although we reckon Natalie Portman (or her body double, allegedly) throwing a few shapes in a leotard would be a better way to get passengers reaching for the emergency oxygen. ®
