9. Air New Zealand

by karen orlowski

Air New Zealand created a HOBBIT safety video for their inflight safety instructions. Pretty cool if you ask me. Since I have been attending the U of O, I have done a fair amount of traveling on Alaska Air. I have been satisfied, but a Hobbit safety video definitely would’ve ensured that I would have stayed awake during the review of safety procedures. Usually, I nod off when the flight attendant starts talking about safety stuff on airplanes. We’ve all heard it a million times. But, this hobbit safety video had me captivated the whole 7 or so minutes this went on. I think this is genius. This video is the coolest thing I have found on the Internet in a while.
