Air New Zealand, famous for its in-flight safety videos have done it again. In partnership with Sports Illustrated magazine they have released a new safety demonstration video titled Safety in Paradise. It features four bikini-clad Sports Illustrated models Chrissy Teigen, Ariel Meredith, Hannah Davis and Jessica Gomes sunning themselves in a beautiful beach location. The video, shot in the Cook Islands, will be rolled out gradually across the airline’s network. It also marks the the 50th anniversary of the Florida-based magazine Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition.
As expected, the production has created a bit of controversy due to its ‘highly sexualised’ content. However, The Cook Island tourism board has come out in its support. Air New Zealand also came out in their defence stating that being shot on the idyllic Cook Islands made it “entirely appropriate” that the ladies wear bikinis.
