Titled ‘Fantastical Journey,’ the video kicks off with Holmes, dressed in all-white, standing on top of the world naming islands on Earth below.

“We should call that Japan and that island there Samoa,” the Ocean’s Eight actress declares.

Gooding Jnr. then pipes in suggesting they name another mass Cuba, before the pair evaluates what places are left.

“There,” says Holmes, pointing to New Zealand. “The most beautiful place we’ve created yet!”

The divine duo then take viewers on a journey through the country, known as the stunning location of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings films, with Holmes shown taking photos of a giant bird.

“Everyone I meet from New Zealand is so lovely, so thoughtful, such good-hearted people,” Holmes says in a promotional clip posted on Stuff. “I have friends from New Zealand, so I’ve just only heard great things.”

Gooding Jr., meanwhile, dips marshmallows in the boiling mud pools of Rotorua, before showing how to put on an oxygen mask.

A colorful wind farm in Wellington, the picturesque Harbour Bridge in Auckland and a postcard-perfect image of stunning Cathedral Cove in the Coromandel are also interspersed between the airline staff’s safety instructions.

The beauty of the South Pacific country is further showcased in scenic images shown on food, like mountain bike trails doubling as the surface of a coffee and ski slopes shown on one of the nation’s signature dessert dishes, a pavlova.

Kiwi artist Gin Wigmore provides the soundtrack with her song, “My Little Corner of the World,” with Gooding Jr. describing her music as ‘melodic, enchanting, soothing.”

The airline also shared behind-the-scenes clips of Holmes and Gooding Jr. filming against a green screen leading up to the release.
