Air New Zealand Puppet Interviews Lindsay Lohan

In the past, Rico the weird New Zealand Air spokespuppet has partied with celebrities ranging from Snoop Dogg to David Hasselhoff. In this episode of “On the Skycouch with Rico,” the squirrel/marsupial puppet sits down with notorious Hollywood bad girl, Lindsay Lohan, who was serving her time under house arrest after stealing a $2500 necklace.

During the nearly five-minute run time of this video, Rico compares Lohan’s breasts to Kim Kardashian‘s, gets some canned laughs with risque malapropisms (“papsmearazzi” is apparently a winner) and bestows expensive looking necklaces on Lohan, saying, “Don’t worry. They’re paid for.” Is New Zealand Air attempting to compete with Spirit Airlines for the number one spot among airlines whose advertising is wrought with dirty jokes about shamed celebrities? As one commenter on NY Magazine‘s entertainment site points out, is the fact that Lindsay made money while under house arrest sadder than the infomercial itself?
