Delta Boeing 737-800 Safety Video, 80’s-style

Delta has made something that should be an answer to the Virgin’s in-flight safety video. There’s no music nor dances but if you are aware of the 80’s, you’ll find it amusing. ALF, audio cassette, Kareem Abdul Jabar as the first officer and folks not having a clue about WiFi.

Delivering their vision that flights are fun and playing with standard passengers behavior (“don’t make me ask you again”), Virgin actually makes you watch this video because it is just fresh and entertaining. When nobody wants to read safety cards and watch flight attendants demonstrating safety features, this is a sign that information should be provided in a better way.

Virgin has also produced a ‘behind the scenes’ video:

And of course there is a Twitter hashtag #VXsafetydance, which you can follow to read how everyone loves it.

And if you really really love it, you can download the song here.
