The Bear Essentials of Safety #airnzbear - YouTube

Bear Grylls stars in New Zealand Air safety video

British adventurer Bear Grylls has teamed up with Air New Zealand to promote on-board safety on its flights.

The new safety video for those lucky enough to be on New Zealand flights features the daredevil chief Scout running through a rocky landscape demonstrating how to buckle a seatbelt and attach a gas mask. This is not the first time the airline has put a unique spin on its in-flight safety videos, previous videos have seen hobbits briefing passengers on safety procedures, naked body-painted crew members adopting the brace position and Richard Simmons dancing through the cabin. The newest video, called Bear Essentials, aims to attract passengers attention by adding a touch of the Bear Grylls charm to the normally boring safety announcements. The four minute film features Bear Grylls giving some unusual safety instructions, advising that “if an oxygen mask suddenly drops down in front of you, you could use it as portable loo, but a much better idea is to pull down on the mask, place it over your nose and mouth, and tighten by pulling on both sides of the elastic.” The video also shows the real life action man stowing a fish under his seat and setting off the smoke alarms by lighting a camp fire.

In the past New Zealand Air has shown safety videos that have included the “All Blacks” New Zealand rugby team and US rap artist Snopp Dogg has even made an appearance on the airline's hilarious yet informative safety videos. The film currently has over 720,000 views on YouTube and you can watch the airlines previous video on its YouTube channel airnewzealand .
