Air New Zealand Pulls Airline Safety Video After Backlash – Is It That Bad?

Air New Zealand found themselves in the spotlight after they released a “sexy” airline safety video.

Some called the video sexist, inappropriate and that it objectified the “sexualized female body”. A petition was started for them to remove the video.

The petition says:

“This video completely disregards passengers who find it offensive for religious reasons, who have body image struggles, who are parents concerned about their children’s impressionable nature, who believe women deserve more respect, and who have teenage daughters who deserve more respect” “This video is culturally insensitive; it disregards those who are conservative by nature and are uncomfortable with its imagery and disregards passengers who have been exposed to sexual assault. Air NZ appears determined to insist that skies are sexy regardless of who they offend.

My personal opinion? I have seen a lot worse in beer commercials. Seriously. I think that this video was just a fun take on boring safety speeches that nobody really listens to anyway. At least this got people to pay attention. That is my opinion though, what is yours? Is this offensive?
