If There’s One Thing All the Denizens of Middle-Earth Can Agree On, It’s Air Safety

I was all set to make fun of this Hobbit-inspired safety video for New Zealand Air (made with help from Weta!), but it’s somehow so simultaneously corny and brilliant and insane and bizarre that I just want to stand back and applaud. Except the part where Peter Jackson shows up, because that’s totally unrealistic. Like that man has seen the coach section of an airplane since 2001.
