Mile-High Madness With Richard Simmons!
The three minute clip employs the services of disgraced broadcaster Paul Henry (famous for making racist remarks about the NZ governor general and mocking the name of Commonwealth Games Minister Sheila Dikshit) plus a cameo from the guy who hosts the Amazing Race.
Richards Simmons is also in it, in fact he’s the 'star', no I had no idea who he was either, so I asked the old man who works on our floor and he phoned his nan.
Turns out Richard is an 80’s TV fitness guru, famed for his outrageous and whacky behaviour, which is reassuring for an airline. He turns the safety demonstration into a workout with flashing lights, spandex and leg warmers.
The video is part of a series of 'funny' ads which include staff in body paint and Snoop Dogg with a puppet.
It’s absolutely awful and utterly pointless so you’ll probably enjoy it, we did.
