Delta Airlines’ Awesome New Retro 80s Music-Themed Inflight Safety Demonstration Video

I spend a lot of times on airplanes so I get to see a lot of safety videos.  No one ever watches these things, which theoretically could lead to some real problems in the event on an emergency.  One of the worst is Air Canada’s soporific clip that seems to last forever. It puts me out even before we’ve finished taxiing.

Delta Airlines is the latest carrier to realize that safety videos don’t have to be dull.  This got my attention.  See how many 80s music references you can spot.

Enjoyed that?  Try Virgin’s “Safety Dance.”

Then there’s this jaunty live demonstration by the crews aboard Cebu Airlines.

Finally, try this Auto Tuned beauty from Bangok Airways.
