    WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand's national airline has adopted a cheeky way to encourage passengers to watch its in-flight safety video: The cabin crew's uniforms are nothing but body paint.

    The "Bare Essentials of Safety," screening in the cabins of planes flying Air New Zealand's main domestic routes, has gone viral online. It had 1.2 million YouTube views by Friday, four days after it was launched.

    In the video, three cabin staff and a pilot, all in full body paint applied to look like their uniforms, talk viewers through the aircraft's safety procedures.

    A demonstration seat belt, life jacket and arm rests are strategically positioned during the 3 1/2-minute video to protect the cabin crew's ... discretion. Passengers are shown ogling, mostly in appreciation.

    The body paint idea is also being used in a series of television advertisements in New Zealand for the airline, which include the promise: "At Air New Zealand, our fares have nothing to hide."

    One ad even features chief executive Rob Fyfe in body paint.

    "We think in tough times there's a premium for making people smile, and it gives the opportunity to stand out in a crowd," Air New Zealand's marketing general manager Steve Bayliss told The Associated Press.

    Each crew member spent about three hours having the body paint applied.

    The video needed "a little bit of a hint, but every frame has to be as modest as anything you see at the local swimming pool or the beach in summer," Bayliss said.

    After all, the people in the ads are not models or actors but work colleagues, he said.

    Maybe somebody will actually watch the videos now.

    Honestly, it looked CGI. Too shiny and plastic to be real, even with the paint.

    That's why they're not a nationally recognised animal - or did you miss that?

    They should just have scantily clad women with large breasts doing it, it'd draw attention and they could actually show it.

    Then people (read: Feminists) would say that it's objectifying women and all that shit.

    I was more interested in the safety instructions than the flight attendants.
