I’ve touched on this before back in 2015 with Air New Zealand’s quirky safety videos, take a look here if you’re interested.
It is often a heated topic of whether these quirky safety videos are safe at all. They do get people to actually watch the video, but do people take note and retain the information being presented to them or is it just another 3 minute video clip fluttering in one eye and out the other.
If you’ve got an opinion about it, please feel free to discuss in the comments section below. Either way, please leave a comment letting us know what your favourite video was or if you have any to share that you think we’d like.
And now, on to the main attraction…

I’m an aviation novice who is obsessed with planes. I love the 747 utmost and the ATR72. Newer planes such as the 787 Dreamliner also rock.
