Air New Zealand pokes fun at Ireland fans before Rugby World Cup quarter-final

New Zealand’s national airline has poked fun at Ireland supporters with a mock pre-match ‘safety tips’ video before the All Blacks’ Rugby World Cup quarter-final against the Irish. The video, which mimics a pre-flight safety briefing, advises fans of Joe Schmidt’s team, who have won two of their last three matches against the All Blacks, that they can expect ‘some upcoming turbulence’ at Tokyo Stadium on Saturday. Children should also be stowed away ‘in the event that language becomes colourful’, while fans are advised to put their heads in their hands in the crouch position if the All Blacks score an early try.

    Fair play to this lot, they would have looked twice as stupid if they lost and went ahead with it anyway

    The orphanage where I worked caught fire this morning and I was the only survivor. On the way out I banged my head on a kitchen cupboard and walked on a nail which went right trough my foot. As a result I was late for my dental appointment, where I had root canal surgery. All of that was funnier than this clip.
