Hobbits Teach Airline Safety for Air New Zealand

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Videos | November 1, 2012 | Comments ()


New Zealand's economy is sixty percent derived from Peter Jackson at this point (seriously, he even crushes local unions like a Wisconsin governor) and so it comes as no real surprise that he collaborated with Weta in order to make a new safety video for Air New Zealand. I'm pretty sure Air New Zealand's entire business is composed of flying around the cast and crew of the various Tolkien films. That and people who go to Australia on vacation and buy the deluxe package that includes three days in New Zealand at the end. Most of those are Lord of the Rings tourists at this point anyway, so it really derives from the same source.

Here is the video, which teaches you once again how to put a freaking seat belt on.

I don't get the guy waving Ron Moore's hair around. Really? He's stunning? Now, if they'd gotten the finger-wagging redhead from the Delta safety video in the mix with some elf ears, they might have melted down the entire Internet.

The first Hobbit film arrives in December, and will be followed annually by additional films until Ian McKellen's corpse falls apart.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
