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

There And Back Again

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.

She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
