Passangers aboard Air New Zealand won't be sitting through a very dull safety video -- instead they'll see a clip that features Gollum crawling through the aisles and Peter Jackson finding the One Ring on the cabin floor! It's pretty neat, including an aircraft pilot outfitted as a Grey wizard, an elf explaining how emergency oxygen masks work, passengers trying to pronounce "Mordor," and even Jackson uttering the infamous phrase "my precious" to the ring.

Check it out here:

What do you think? I'd certainly be paying a lot more attention when it played! LOL

Oh, that is just too cool! Definitely a lot more interesting than the standard safety video. Could be it will start a trend, incorporating other movie franchises.

Now that kind of safety video would certainly get my attention! LOL Way better than the stale boring ones I normally see. And, I bet it would also grab the attention of kids on the flight... always a good thing!
