Ed O'Neill, Melanie Lynskey's in-flight safety video - watch
Well, the people at Air New Zealand have got around that problem with their new animated video featuring Modern Family's Ed O'Neill and Two and a Half Men's Melanie Lynskey
Also animated in the clip are various famous folk who you can try to spot while watching.
The vid will be rolled out on the company's international and domestic jet flights from early July.
Air New Zealand's general manager for Europe Chris Myers said: "We've previously featured body-painted airline staff, All Blacks and fitness guru Richard Simmons in our videos which have attracted more than 20 million views online.
"This time, we're taking the opportunity to highlight the global reach of our business and to recognise world events and celebrities in a uniquely Air New Zealand way.
"That's why customers will see world leaders who feature in election processes this year, Olympians competing to prove they are the best in the world, our All Black Captain and A-listers who are big in their markets today."
