Richard Simmons Joins John Travolta In Gaying Up Airline Safety Videos

Long ago I challenged my pal Richard Simmons to try and out-gay his decades long career as a weight loss guru. At last, he’s delivered — in this Air New Zealand safety video. And when this man asks you to put your seat in its upright position, he’s not doing it because he wants to bounce around in your lap. But kudos to Simmons for managing to make John Travolta’s Qantas safety video look straight. And, I guess?, kudos to Air New Zealand for replacing its previous (and supposedly homophobic) safety video with this queer thing.
