The most epic safety video ever made

Air New Zealand:

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

It very well may be the most expensive aircraft safety video ever made. And interesting to see some of the difference between the demonstrations we see on North American Airlines. But I’m sorry – I don’t believe for a second that Elijah Wood flies Coach.



  • Walter Freeman

    Elijah flies coach ’cause the first class seats are too big and thus unsafe. Kinda like car seats for small children.

  • Moeskido

    I see they saved on talent costs by hiring more Sylvan elves.

    Have been on a few Air NewZealand flights, and it does not surprise me at all. The video that was in circulation a while back was very nicely done as well. Way better than anything i’ve seen in the west.
