You may remember when Air New Zealand released a safety video featuring all kinds of creatures from The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings a couple of years back – I wrote about it here. Well, they have done it again and just released what they have called “The Most Epic Air Safetey Video Ever Made”. It’s more creative, cinematic fun with familiar faces – Peter Jackson, Elijah “Frodo” Wood, several actors from The Hobbit and Air New Zealand staff (you should recognise some of them!) dressed up as creatures from The Hobbit. This time round, the video also cleverly showcases New Zealand, but who can blame them? It’s one gorgeous place and anyone who doesn’t want to go there after watching the video is probably not much a world traveller to begin with.
Anyhow, here’s the video:
The Most Epic Air Safety Video Ever Made (October 2014)
It also seems Air New Zealand made a Hobbit/Lord of the Rings inspired commercial last year, which I somehow missed:
Just Another Day (November 2013)
My favourite bit: the airplane flapping its wings!
And the original hobbity Air New Zealand video:
An Unexpected Briefing (October 2012)
Enjoy them all!
