Air New Zealand has created a very unique in-flight safety video that has had everyone talking, some in elfish!

Yes, that’s right, the airline has incorporated one of New Zealand’s most famous tourism attractions and has produced a Hobbit-inspired video to ensure their passengers are kept safe.

Those heading to Middle Earth with Air New Zealand can expect to be given safety instructions by stars including Elijah Wood, Sir Peter Jackson, Dean O’Gorman, Sir Richard Taylor, Sylvestor McCoy and Naoyuki Shimizu.

Dubbed ‘the most epic safety video ever made’, the four and a half minute film begins with a couple sitting down on their flight, who are clearly Tolkien fans and are even wearing merchandise from The Hobbit films.

Turning to find that Frodo himself, Elijah Wood, is sat next to them, they are transported into Middle Earth where they battle to save the Ring as they make their way through various Middle Earth locations which include Hobbiton and Central Otago.ADNFCR-408-ID-801756406-ADNFCR
