Fly, You Fools: Air New Zealand Makes LotR Themed Pre-Flight Safety Briefing


Going away to college meant a lot of things to me, and among them, spending a lot of time flying. And while I tried to dutifully pay attention to the pre-flight safety briefing every time, no matter how many times I’d heard it before, well… my resolve was weakened. Air NZ, you’ve just figured out a way to get my attention back, and put in cameos from Peter Jackson, Dean O’Gorman (Fili), Gollum, the great grand-son of J.R.R Tolkien, and two writers from The One Ring.net.
