New Zealanders have previously complained that people only know them for Lord Of The Rings - now it seems that they've just surrendered and are embracing it instead.

As the second Hobbit movie nears release, Air New Zealand have followed up their previous Hobbit flight safety video, with a fun viral which shows their staff turning into the creatures, as well as lots of nods to other elements of the stories.

First Lorde takes over the charts, now this - New Zealand is well and truly on a roll at the moment.
