Airline Aims To Advertise On Bald Heads
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Air New Zealand is looking for a few bald-headed frequent fliers. It's part of the company's new advertising venture. The airline will pay $666 a head to 50 passengers willing to work as cranial billboards. They'll use their shiny heads to publicize a new speedy check-in service. The airline's holding auditions next week. Winners will be shaved — if necessary — on the spot and branded with a temporary tattoo advertisement.
It's MORNING EDITION.
