Well, that's one way to make sure that people pay attention during the airline safety speech.
Air New Zealand, which flies in and out of the wonderful country where "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and all three "The Hobbit" movies were filmed, put together this star-studded Middle Earth-themed video in honor of the upcoming release of "The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies," which they've humbly titled "The Most Epic Airline Safety Video Ever Made."
The video features elves, orcs, dwarves, and even cameo appearances by Frodo Baggins and Radagast the Brown (although Sebastian the hedgehog is, alas, not present.) Also, the orc army has learned an impressive new "airplane" formation that could put your average college marching band to shame. Obviously there's a gauntlet being thrown down here, so hopefully it won't be long before Aer Lingus responds with its own "Outlander" themed presentation featuring a nude Sam Heughan.
