YES, WE HAVE A GIANT GOLLUM IN OUR AIRPORT: The New Air New Zealand / Hobbit Inflight Safety Video

Here in New Zealand we are now just weeks away from the debut of the final chapter in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy; The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. So what does that mean? Yip, it's time for another Tolkien based in-flight safety video from our national airline Air New Zealand - one which even stars Peter himself.

For those of you who saw the giant Gollum in the airport reaching out for a fish from up in the ceiling, that is shot in Wellington airport (Wellington being the capital city, and home to Peter Jackson's movie making empire). It has been in place since the first Lord of The Rings film, and shows no sign of coming down anytime soon. Nor has it lost any of it's effect.

So, what do you think?
