I have noticed recently that airlines have been ramping up the safety video that most people ignore on flights with some long needed humor. However, I am afraid that Air New Zealand has the competition won.
After all, how many safety films have cameos from director Peter Jackson and Elijah Wood, star of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy?
Some passengers might want to pass on the inflight movie and just see the 4-minute safety video again.
Entitled “The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made,” the video features the scenes and costumes of the movie shot in New Zealand.
By the way, whatever the cost, it was not much in comparison to the movies themselves. A story just came out stating that the trilogy cost $870 million dollars to make.
Not only does the film improve safety, but it plugs for the third and final film in Jackson’s “Hobbit” trilogy — “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” A win, win proposition. Of course, it is a bit unnerving when the flight attendant announced that “we will be deplaning at the Black Gate of Mordor.”
