If only all in-flight safety vids were like this…

…I’d actually pay attention for once!

I especially love the cameos. 🙂

Update: Okay, I was a little slow and just saw this. But there is a chance to win a trip to New Zealand tied in with the video. On the off chance you haven’t already seen it, go here.

    That’s lovely! I’d be paying attention, too. Go Air NZ, the airline of Middle Earth. I wonder if they serve dwarfs alcohol…

    • I love how much effort has gone into Air New Zealand’s Hobbit collaboration. I’m sure they do serve alcohol to dwarves…they would probably cause problems otherwise. 😉

  2. I’d pay attention! 🙂 Air NZ sure knows how to make something as important as the safety briefing fun in the process. Nice job!

    They looked like they had a fun time filming that. How could they not, with Sir Peter on board? 😉

    That was spectacular – and such fun! I certainly paid attention. It think TPTB at Air NZ must have a great sense of humour! I also think Sir Peter is just a big kid at heart, bless him. Now if only Thorin had had a cameo or at least his velvety voice! 😉

    • It really was fun to watch. I paid even closer attention when I realized there was a chance to win a trip to NZ! I think you are right about Peter Jackson. He really does seem to still have the heart of a child–in the best possible ways! Hmmm…it would have been nice to see Thorin in the clip, but I’m guessing they used people who were close by.

  4. Thanks for this Jas! I always go into “zombie mode” and switch off while the poor flight attendants perform the safety briefing. But this is FUN!!! If only I could ever fly with Air New Zealand…not very likely unless I win the lottery! Sir Peter I love you, you diabolical but cuddly filmmaker (Zan’s words)! 🙂

    • Judit, I go into “zombie mode” as you call it too. But they would have my complete attention with a clip like this! I would love to fly with them too. Maybe some day, although The Hobbit stuff will probably me long gone my the time I have the chance. Diabolical but cuddly…such a perfect description! 🙂

  5. I LOVE the hairy socks! LOL! 🙂
