If you’ve ever flown on a commercial airplane, you’re well-acquainted with the safety demonstrations and rules that are presented right before take off. The demonstrations are interesting (in an educational way) the first couple of times, but it gets pretty dull after that. (I’m not saying you shouldn’t listen to them. Every plane is a little bit different, so it’s always good to at least make yourself aware of any updates to the safety situation.)
But what caught my eye earlier this week was Air New Zealand’s new safety video with a Lord of the Rings theme. I rarely say this to any airline video production team, but JOB WELL DONE AIR NEW ZEALAND!
Even those who aren’t Tolkein fans will get a huge kick out of this fun, funny, and beautifully produced video. (If you don’t know, most of the landscape and scenes for the Lord of the Rings films were all filmed in New Zealand.)
Here’s the video:
