Insurance giant AIG has released an advertisement titled ‘#TackleTheRisk’, featuring the New Zealan rugby team putting their rugby skills to good use on the busy streets of Tokyo.

 

The ad features ‘All Blacks’ stars Jerome Kaino, Anton Lienert-Brown, Liam Squire, Brodie Retallick, Codie Taylor, Damian McKenzie, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Scott Barrett and Steven Luatua tackling Japanese passers-by one at a time.

It's then revealed that the ‘All Blacks’ were in fact saving the people from certain danger, with oncoming cars, burning electronic gadgets and falling objects narrowly missing them shortly after. The advertisement finishes with Kaino being tackled by a Japanese child, before a falling light lands where he was standing.

AIG is an official partner of New Zealand Rugby and the short film is set to boost the ‘All Blacks’ profile in Japan.
