It’s no secret that New Zealand has been cashing in on the craze over Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies.  The national tourism slogan has even been changed from “100% Pure New Zealand” to “100% Middle-Earth.”  I don’t blame them.  The movies are amazing and the sets and locations are incredible and the tourism helps the whole country.  Air New Zealand is supporting the national effort.  Check out this Air New Zealand safety video that capitalizes on The Hobbit craze:

Air New Zealand has a sense of humor.  We could never do these kinds of things here in the U.S. without someone staging a protest or some member of Congress holding hearings.  Nice job Air New Zealand.  When I have the kind of money that it takes to travel to New Zealand, I’ll be sure to fly on your airline.
