Air New Zealand Asks Passengers to Rewrite Taylor Swift Songs in Exchange for Free Tickets
They’ve got a blank space, baby, and they’ll write your name.
With a new year comes a new incredibly scenic Taylor Swift video. The artist’s Out of the Woods music video—which dropped on New Year’s Eve—was shot in New Zealand at places like Auckland's Bethells Beach and what appears to be the Southern Alps. (Haven’t seen it yet? Check it out above).
The taping was not without some controversy, but for the most part, Kiwis were thrilled to see their country featured—including local airline Air New Zealand. The carrier, which ranks as a passenger favorite, was quick to jump on the video’s release in order to brainstorm ideas regarding a potential new safety video.
“In honor of T-Swift’s new NZ-filmed music video, we're keen to get your lyrical talent out of the woods, too,” the airline’s U.S. Facebook page states.
The task at hand: Passengers have until January 14 to submit “safety lyrics” to the tune of their favorite Taylor Swift song by using the hashtag #OOTWSafety on social media. The winner will receive two round-trip economy tickets to Auckland in addition to two tickets to see Swift in concert back in the United States. As for the winner’s lyrics? We can only hope that they make it into some sort of cheesy safety video.
