The Bare Essentials with Air New Zealand
Air New Zealand is getting down to the bare essentials with a new in-flight safety video that features flight attendants wearing just body paint.
It’s aimed at making passengers pay attention to the often-overlooked airline safety videos shown at the start of each flight. (Which we’re sure will work. If only they would adopt this on SAS or Nordic Airways.)
“We wanted to find a way to deliver these important pre-flight messages to our domestic travelers in a way that was genuine, engaging and fun,” said Air New Zealand marketing manager Steve Bayliss.

This latest case of Photoshop animal abuse is brought to you by Queen Bee Waxing of Culver City, California. Personally we think they should have gone for a Brazillian on the beaver but that’s just us. Do they really need to wax a cock though? Generally the bean bag needs a touch up but the cock itself shouldn’t need a waxing.
Some people are using Roombas and long-exposure photography to make some really trippy art. It looks pretty cool but it also serves as a reminder that some people have WAY too much time on their hands.
These works by photographer Dina Goldstein place Fairy Tale characters in modern day scenarios. In all of the images the Princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict. The ‘…happily ever after’ is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues.
“The project was inspired by my observation of three-year-old girls, who were developing an interest in Disney’s Fairy tales. As a new mother I have been able to get a close up look at the phenomenon of young girls fascinated with Princesses and their desire to dress up like them. The Disney versions almost always have sad beginning, with an overbearing female villain, and the end is predictably a happy one. The Prince usually saves the day and makes the victimized young beauty into a Princess.”
