11 Creative In-Flight Safety Videos From Around the World
The last thing most airplane passengers want to do is pay attention to a rote pre-flight safety demonstration. After all, it's always the same from flight to flight. But some airlines are fighting back against ennui, producing creative and inventive in-flight safety videos to grab passengers' attention.
In 2013, Virgin America created an over-the-top musical in-flight safety video featuring singer Todrick Hall from American Idol. The video has everything from a dancing nun to an adorable kid rapping about oxygen masks. It’s well-choreographed and performed with dancers from So You Think You Can Dance. Virgin America even hired director Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2: The Street, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) to create the video.
