|Screen grab from the Air NZ safety video|
If you have not seen it yet, here is the Air New Zealand in-flight safety video that is going viral right across the internet and social networks everywhere. Marketing itself as the 'official' airline of Middle-earth, Air New Zealand has gone all out to celebrate the third and final film in The Hobbit Trilogy - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
The safety video includes Elijah Wood and Sir Peter Jackson as well as several Air NZ flight crew members and cameo appearances by by Sylvester McCoy, Dean O’Gorman and Weta Workshop co-founder Sir Richard Taylor.
Air New Zealand are promoting the film, directed by Taika Waititi as, "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made." Hyperbole, certainly, but a lot of fun just the same. Enjoy!
