The Bare Essentials

I'm not sure how this subject came up [perhaps we were discussing the Solstice Parade and the tradition for many cyclists to discard their fancy bicycle clothing in favor of painted attire] but my dad mentioned that a New Zealand airline, frustrated that their passengers weren't paying attention to the safety video, came up with, well.. a rather novel approach to grabbing the attention of their riders. Paint! As clothing! [sounds chilly, doesn't it?] Naturally, I had to look it up for myself. What would we do without YouTube? It's not racy [G-rated]; in fact, it's difficult to tell that the participants are wearing only paint. It's hilarious; check it out!
