When I think of in-flight safety videos, Richard Simmons isn’t exactly the first name that comes to mind but Air New Zealand apparently didn’t get the memo. The video has the Sweatin’ to the Oldies fitness guru in those scary shorts and the crew in spandex… and it’s not to be missed!!

I hope your seat is in the upright position and your tray table is locked… So far the video has been viewed over 500,000 times on YouTube!

There are more lycra and colorful lights than the entire 80s and you have to check it out…

But it’s not just the signature Simmons short-shorts (you know the ones that you don’t want to be on an escalator below him when he’s wearing) he also gives the safety tips you see on all the airlines including…

  • “Stretch like a giraffe” to stow your luggage in the overhead compartments!
  • Richard’s signature move “the duck” – to explain what to do if you’re about to crash!

Would you feel safe flying on a plane that just had the safety instructions read by Richard Simmons? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
