The newest addition to Betty White’s long list of accomplishments is a safety video for Air New Zealand. Anyone familiar with the “Golden Girls” and “Hot in Cleveland” actress knows that comedy is her forte, so the informational clip is anything but serious.
Called "Safety Old School Style", it is set in a retirement community, starring White and some older companions of hers. The video will now be shown on the airline’s fleet of Airbus A320s.
In the video, White speaks for herself and her elderly buddies stating “If you want to know about survival, talk to us; because you're going to want some advice from people who have been there and done that.”
She then comically informs plane passengers where to store boxes, how to buckle seatbelts, wear oxygen masks and inflate life jackets. White even talks about the position all plane goers should take on in the event of a crash, all while showcasing her signature smile. Elderly women sitting in a golf cart model the potentially life-saving position.
The video is gaining a ton of attention online for the clever marketing and the fact that it instantly grabs attention, while still being easily informative.
