Air New Zealand releases yet another epic safety video

    by -

    Elijah Wood returns to Middle Earth in Air New Zealand’s latest epic safety video. Joining him is renowned “Lord of the Rings” director Sir Peter Jackson, together with the usual host of elves, dwarves, orcs. And Gandalf.

    Seeing as how airlines these days are using safety briefings as (viral) marketing air time, Air New Zealand’s move is certainly a not unexpected, given the country’s association with LOTR.

    In fact, this isn’t Air New Zealand’s first safety video involving LOTR. They released another one two years ago featuring our Middle Earth brethren dishing out those safety instructions. Take a look at that one and let us know which video you like better.
