While many airlines have incorporated new COVID-19 protocols into their pre-flight safety announcements, Alaska Airlines decided to put a creative spin on telling their passengers about safety information by releasing a music video.
Alaska Airlines parodied Safety Dance by Men Without Hats with dancing flight attendants, an enthusiastic keytar player, and clever lyrics like, “Well your friends don’t mask and why don’t they mask? Well they won’t fly this airline.”
The Alaska Airlines employees who appear in the video were selected based on leader nominations and their ability and willingness to dance. Others were from the Alaska Flight Attendant Drill Team. They were required to learn the choreography at home and then spent eight hours in a rehearsal the day before filming to ensure they had all the moves right.
