I’m sure by now you’ve seen this video that’s gone viral overnight:
This wasn’t even officially released by Cebu Pacific; it was just uploaded by a passenger who witnessed the trial run. Within days, it was on most websites, it was tweeted by no less than Ryan Seacrest, featured by CNN, and in most international newspaper online sites. This isn’t even a standard practice yet. If you ride a Cebu Pacific plane now, you probably won’t see this same routine. But let’s see if all this attention (mostly positive) will make this a standard in all of their flights.
But if ever they do adopt this new gimmick, Cebu Pacific won’t be the first. Most famously (or notoriously) is Southwest Airlines in the U.S. They’ve been doing unique ways to announce the safety instructions, singing, rapping, even beatboxing:
Singing Flight Attendant
Rapping Flight Attendant
Beatboxing Flight Attendant
And then there are those airlines who have videos of the safety instructions. Here are 2 unique safety instruction videos:
Thompson Airways Safety Video
Here’s a video I posted before. In case you miss it, all the flight attendants are buck naked, clothed only in body paint:

Well, do you like it better this way? Or are you old school preferring the more formal approach?
