Hobbit-Themed Airline Safety Video


If your kids are getting stoked for The Hobbit (and, THEY SHOULD BE) take some time to show them this real airline safety video from Air New Zealand.

The video goes over standard safety features just like your standard pre-flight instructions but the life vest is modeled by an Aragorn look alike and Hobbits demonstrate how to properly stow your carry on. The flight attendant is an enchanting Elvish woman, though she appears to be fully fluent in English.

No Hobbit send up would be complete without at least one reference to “My precious,” uttered here by none other than Peter Jackson himself.

I love showing things like this to my kids. It makes the world we live in seem a bit more enchanting. Watch for a Gollum cameo, after the jump.
