5 Reasons Virgin America’s New Safety Dance Video is Awesome

If you haven’t already seen it, Virgin America today released their new safety video. It’s a break from the normal boring videos you see telling you how to do the obvious, but it’s so much more than that.

Five reasons VX’s new safety video is awesome:

5) No airplanes were harmed during the making of this video.


4) These people actually look happy to fly (despite putting oxygen masks on)


3) The talent.


36 total dancers
26 hours on set
14 dance styles used
10 So You Think You Can Dance alum
1 American Idol Semi Finalist: Todrick Hall
1 Character from the Original Safety Video: the “Nun”
2 Former Olympians: Tamara Campos as the “Nun” and Emilie Livingston as the “Teacher”

2) The best looking cabin crew evar.


1) It exactly answers the much-wondered question: “Who doesn’t know how to buckle a seatbelt?”

The answer: .001% of you.
