Air New Zealand Introduces Hobbit-Inspired Safety Video

New Zealand loves the fact that Peter Jackson has returned to make The Hobbit films and we can't blame them -- we'd be pretty excited too! First the New Zealand Post revealed a bunch of legal tender coins that celebrate the occasion, then a massive sculpture of Gollum was constructed in an airport. Now, Air New Zealand has created a Middle-Earth inspired pre-flight safety video.

The video features flight attendants dressed as elves and a captain dressed as Gandalf the Grey. There's also a pretty cool cameo, but I'm not going to spoil it for you.

Apparently, the video was created with help from Weta Workshop, the effects and prop specialists who worked on the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and are currently working on Jackson's “The Hobbit” films.
