Air New Zealand Has Done Another Cameo-Filled, LotR-Themed Safety Briefing

Dean O'Gorman, why are you wearing a seatbelt you are on a horse.

I may not get to cavort around New Zealand anytime soon—something about it costing money, I dunno—but at least I get to watch “The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.” You milk those Middle Earth movies, Air New Zealand. You milk them as long as you possibly can.

If you like this short (and I’m guessing you will, because it’s remarkably well-done), it was directed Taika Waititi (Flight of the Conchords), who has a really good coming-of-age comedy called Boy on Netflix Instant. He also played Gandalf in the above vid, but we’ll forgive him for not being Ian McKellen because he rocks that fake beard rather well.
