Fly, You Fools! – New Zealand Air’s Hobbit Safety Video


We’ve all seen airline safety videos a thousand times at this point, but if you’re flying New Zealand Air, you’re going to be in for quite a different experience. The airline teamed up with Peter Jackson and WETA to produce this Hobbit-themed safety video to delight the tourists on their way their to see where LOTR and The Hobbit were filmed. Which is all of them.

The five minute video is exceptionally well made, as you might expect with WETA’s involvement. No cast cameos, but there is one prominent figure who shows up briefly.

Holy crap, did you see that elite business class section? They have footrests! Stupid American tin can airlines. Which I am boarding this afternoon as you’re probably reading this. Sigh. Sadly my United flight to Cleveland will probably not be full of hot elves.
