The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, like the Star Wars movies, resulted in great ancillary moments of creativity from people not associated with the making of the movies. This video of preflight instructions from Air New Zealand is an outstanding example. Although anyone who has flown knows already of these instructions, the presentation in this video makes listening to them again a highly enjoyable experience.


  1. Love this, including the Kiwi accents. 🙂

    • According to this morning’s newspaper, the Air New Zealand video got 2 million hits within 24 hours of its posting on YouTube. That is effective marketing!
