Every seasoned traveler knows who boring those airline safety videos they make you sit through while the plane is getting ready for take off. That’s usually when I begin my nap, or divert my focus to the in-flight shopping catalogue, or even taking a read through the instructions on the air sickness bag…

Luckily for us, there’s an airline who feels our pain. Air New Zealand for some time now has been producing funny attention-grabbing and amusing safety videos with a message designed and delivered to get us to focus on the ever so important safety tips.

Their latest effort, entitled "An Unexpected Briefing" was created while working with Peter Jackson’s companyWeta, and imagines a take off from Middle Earth featuring an assorted lot of elves, hobbits, dwarves and other assorted beastiers from the Lord of the Rings movies.

Well worth sitting through and far more entertaining than an air sickness bag, its definintely worth a watch (or two). You can check it out yourself below…
