Director Peter Jackson has joined forces with bosses at Air New Zealand to create a hilarious in-flight safety video inspired by his latest film 'The Hobbit'.
The film, titled An Unexpected Briefing in reference to a chapter from The Lord Of The Rings novel, shows an aircraft packed with hobbits, dwarves and orcs preparing to take flight.
Oscar winner Jackson even makes a cameo appearance as a Gollum-inspired creature before disappearing after finding The One Ring on the floor and slipping it on.
Flight attendants are dressed as elves and wizards as they take their passengers through a list of safety instructions, all of which are inspired by the J.R.R. Tolkien novel.
Gollum is seen prowling the aisles as Tolkien's great-grandsons Mike and Royd Tolkien argue in the front row, and actor Dean O'Gorman, who plays Fili the Dwarf in the movie, demonstrates safety equipment.
