Hoffman says Air New Zealand's reputation for making engaging safety videos was a huge draw card to being involved.

"Air New Zealand is renowned for its safety videos and for risk taking and creativity. People want to see something fun onboard and Air New Zealand just has so much fun. Kiwis are the nicest, friendliest, most laid-back crew. Air New Zealand has the most human customer service I've ever experienced - they're incredible," Hoffman said.

The actor has been overt about his love for New Zealand in media and social media.

"It's a love affair with New Zealand. It's incredible - the food is amazing and the people are amazing. It's the way it should be everywhere. I eventually plan on living there - not illegally but maybe becoming a resident somehow," he said.

Air New Zealand General Manager Global Brand & Content Marketing Jodi Williams, said, "Rick's on and offscreen personality is infectious and goes hand in hand with the character of our tongue-in-cheek safety videos. He was fantastic to have on set and we had so much fun teaching him the Kiwi' way of doing things."
