*Folks traveling on Virgin America will notice something a little different about the safety video.
The days of those hideous pencil-drawn, animated characters are over. On November 1, the airline will debut its replacement – a five minute music video featuring 36 dancers and former contestants from “So You Think You Can Dance” and “American Idol” doing everything from singing to rapping to breakdancing to contortions, all while adhering to the FAA’s in-flight safety guidelines.
There’s even a nun.
“We knew how much our guests loved the fun and irreverence of our current video, but after six years we wanted to give them something unexpected, a fresh take on what a safety video could be,” creative director Jesse McMillin said. “Changing the game is what Virgin America is all about, and we hope our guests have as much fun boppin’ their heads to the new video as we had making it.”
The song has a Cee-Lo “F*** You” flavor to it.
Directed by Hollywood blockbuster film director Jon M. Chu (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “Step Up 2”), we give you – the VX Safety Dance (a.k.a. the Virgin America Pre-Flight Safety Instruction Video).
Virgin America fliers can vie for a chance to be in a second, 2014 version of the video by submitting their own freestyle moves via Instagram video and tagging them “#VXsafetydance” to be voted on.
