1 As the official airline of Middle-earth, Air New Zealand has gone all out to celebrate the third and final film in The Hobbit Trilogy - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Starring Elijah Wood and Sir Peter Jackson; we're thrilled to unveil The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made. Special cameos by Sylvester McCoy, Dean O’Gorman and Weta Workshop co-founder Sir Richard Taylor. Directed by Taika Waititi. Enjoy!
This is the cutest in flight safety film ever! It actually makes you want to listen!
Very nice and creative! I already watch it on one of the flights.
Funny and innovative.
Designed to be quick, engaging, instructional and light without compromising the important elements of flight safety. Shot without the use of aircraft interiors, allows this video to be easily adaptable and interchangeable between existing and next generation fleet.
The safety video was filmed over 20 hours on a Delta 777 in Detroit. More than 100 people including 20 actors, 80 extras, six flight attendants and a pilot are featured in the video dressed in 80's fashions including authentic Delta flight attendant uniforms, leg warmers, hair scrunchies and neon colors. There are also cameos from some of our favorite 80's stars including basketball player Kareem Abdul Jabbar, who had a cameo in the movie "Airplane", as a Delta first officer. We also have our favorite '80s alien, Alf, and even an original member of Devo, Gerald Casale, safely storing the popular energy dome.
Buckle up to get down. They have enlisted the help of Virgin Produced, Director Jon M. Chu, Choreographers Jamal Sims and Christopher Scott, Song & Lyrics by Todrick Hall, Composer/Producer Jean-yves "Jeeve" Ducornet, Virgin America teammates, and dance stars like Mike Song and Madd Chadd to give safety video a new song and dance -- literally. From the exit doors to the oxygen masks, no seat belt was left unbuckled.
Chromeo helps Mallard Air make its safety video a whole lot funkier :)
