I know this video came out a month ago, but I saw The Hobbit recently and it seemed appropriate. In case you haven’t seen it yet, Air New Zealand came out with an airline safety video that is Lord of the Rings themed. Peter Jackson has a quick cameo, and the whole affair is silly while still providing real safety information. They even made their slogan: The Airline of Middle-earth.
I hope it makes you feel like hopping on a plane even if it can’t actually fly you to a fantasy world.
I’m spamming your blog today! Your post made me think of this: http://www.theonion.com/articles/the-hobbit-to-feature-53minutelong-scene-of-bilbo,30727/
Favorite part: The film’s director, Peter Jackson, expressed excitement about the film’s premiere, and hinted that the second film in the Hobbit trilogy would chronicle Bilbo’s return to the Shire after he realizes he forgot his toiletries bag
I’m so happy that you’re spamming my blog today. Thanks for sharing that Onion article–always hilarious. Have you seen The Hobbit? It does have a number of unnecessary scenes, but it was really fun to watch.
