If you love yourself some Carpool Karaoke, Air New Zealand's hoping you'll be willing to watch celebrities hit new decibel levels in an airplane cockpit. The below video is a public pitch aimed straight for late-night talk show host James Corden, who has created viral hit after viral hit with the popular segment, featuring musicians and other stars singing along with him to popular tracks while driving around Los Angeles. Corden notably even convinced Michelle Obama to jam to Beyoncé last month). "Mate, we've got a pitch for you," the Air New Zealand video begins. "Picture this: You. Us."

Air New Zealand's quirky "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made" marks the airline’s latest go at enlisting characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth to spoof the stuffy in-flight safety video.
The wizards at Air New Zealand have conjured up their third J.R.R. Tolkien-themed video in as many years, ahead of the final installment of Peter Jackson's second Middle-Earth trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
There is one good reason to visit New Zealand (not counting you already happened to be in Australia so why not swing by). It's because you wish you lived in The Lord of the Rings instead of in the real world.
This week, long-lost lovers got knocked off their feet by new appliances, Dewar's demonstrated that you needn't have a Y chromosome to enjoy a "drinking man's scotch," and smartphones went for a sugary swim.

Well, not actual sheep—they blow kisses at two dudes dressed as sheep in an ad for Air New Zealand. I guess that makes the Shannon twins furries, which is sad, and even sadder when you consider it's not too far downhill from their previous relationship. It also makes them officially weirder than previous Air New Zealand pitchman Richard Simmons. More ads after the jump featuring these "Inseparable Sheep Twins," who are really just a pathetic, poor man's Skittles sheep boys.
Air New Zealand continues its train-wreck celebrity series by inviting Lindsay Lohan to sit on the "skycouch" and be peppered with sexual innuendo by the carrier's lascivious, foul-mouthed spokes-squirrel, Rico.
Air New Zealand's sub-muppet mascot Rico could be described as appealing only if we change the definition of the word to "grating and unacceptable in the extreme." Likewise, watching the frizzy freak play a talk show host/psychiatrist in this "On the Skycouch With Rico" clip and trade double entendres with goofy pop icon David Hasselh
