Men in dark suits robot dancing to Virgin America's catchy inflight safety tune.
Virgin America’s song-and-dance safety video is catchy and fun!
Move over hobbits, orcs and Betty White, there’s a new in-flight safety video that’s taking off in the cybersphere.
While Air New Zealand has held a comfortable lead as the carrier with perhaps the coolest in-flight safety videos in the industry, enlisting orcs, hobbits and the world’s favourite nonagenarian (that’s White) to show passengers how to inflate their life vests, Virgin America has upped the ante with a new video that includes dancing flight attendants, robot raps and flying nuns.
The video was uploaded on Oct 29 and currently has more than three million hits. Choreographed by Jamal Sims and Christopher Scott, the video is five minutes of Glee-style song-and-dance, with safety rules set to a catchy tune, rapping kids reminding passengers how to don their oxygen masks, and a troop of The Matrix-style suits “robot rapping” about life jackets.
The new Virgin America video is released on the heels of Air New Zealand’s latest video starring Hot In Cleveland’s White and Love Boat’s Captain Gavin MacLeod.
Last year, to help mark the release of native Kiwi filmmaker Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the carrier produced a video featuring elves, hobbits and orcs, a video that has since been viewed more than 11 million times. — AFP Relaxnews
