A crop of this year’s stars from Sports Illustrated‘s annual swimsuit issue shot the official airline safety video for Air New Zealand.
The video features super hot models Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Gomes, Hannah Davis, Ariel Meredith and the legendary Christie Brinkley, all of whom will appear in the upcoming 50th annual swimsuit issue. It explains all the necessary requirements for getting on an airplane as well as the emergency exits and use of flotation devices in case of a water landing.
That all sounds a little harrowing but just imagine a bunch of nearly naked swimsuit models explaining it to you while standing in a tropical paradise. They are so hot, they could describe a hernia operation in graphic detail and guys all over the world would be hanging on to their every word.
The video was shot in the Cook Islands by Air New Zealand, an airline that seems to go out of its way to shoot elaborate safety videos with familiar faces and characters such as their recent hiring of hobbits from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and the always awesome Betty White who with (all due respect) we hope doesn’t appear in a swimsuit video in any context. Unfortunately, we won’t get to see the full video or even the next swimsuit issue for at least another week but we’ve got something to help tie you over without having to, um, tie yourself up in knots. Enjoy this carefully collected collection of Sports Illustrated swimsuit babes from issues past.
