Air New Zealand + The Hobbit

TheeBlog-AirNewZealandHobbit Let’s face it, airplane safety videos are dull, boring and sometimes annoying (and painful, like those old 90s videos AmericanAirlines still plays). Yes, I know they can save lives but we’re not here to make sense are we? But wait, not all airlines have this “who gives a shit” attitude when it comes to their onboard experience. Jet Blue and Virgin Airlines, for example, have turned me not only into a customer but a fan as well. Last year I had the chance of flying Virgin and watched what until today, was the coolest and funnest safety video I had seen. Today, I want to share a new addition to the cool safety video club, courtesy of Air New Zealand. Their fun and over-the-top Hobbit inspired feature shows how something so dull as a safety video could be turned into a fun and entertaining experience with just a bit of caring. Check out the video after the jump!

Air New Zealand partnered with WETA Workshop on a brand new Hobbit inspired Safety Video. It features cameo appearances including Sir Peter Jackson.
