Flight attendant raps safety briefing, goes viral

We all know the typical flight safety demonstration, which is helpful for those of us know have never used a seatbelt… This flight attendant decided to take a new approach to satyey instruction, by rapping them. The video has taken the internet by storm!

Southwest Airlines is known for its innovative ways to bring out flight announcements as the humorous flight attendant says, “We do things a little bit differently here on Southwest. Some of us tell jokes, some of us sing, some of us just stand there and look beautiful.”

Taking the leeway for announcements into his own hands, David Holmes, decided to rap the safety briefing, which passengers loved!

Holmes invited passengers to participate in the performance, “All I need you to do is stomp and clap and I’m gonna do the rest cause I just had 5 flights today and I just cannot do the regular boring announcement again otherwise I’m gonna put myself to sleep.”

Watch it and have fun and join in on the fun!


Read the flight attendant’s rapping safety briefing here:


This is flight 372 on SWA

The flight attendants onboard serving you today

Theresa in the middle, David in the back

My name is David and I’m here to tell you that


Shortly after takeoff, first things first

There’s soft drinks and coffee to quench your thirst

But if you want another kind of drink then just holler

Alcoholic beverages will be four dollars


If a Monster energy drink is your plan

That’ll be three dollars and you get the whole can

We won’t take your cash, you gotta pay with plastic

If you have a coupon, then that’s fantastic


We know you’re ready to go new places

Open up the bins and put away your suitcases

Carry on items go under the seat

In front of you so none of you have things by your feet


If you have a seat on a row with an exit

We’re gonna talk to you so you might as well expect it

You gotta help evacuate in case we need you

If you don’t wanna then we’re gonna reseat you


Before we leave, our advice is

Put away your electronic devices

Fasten your seatbelt, then put your trays up

Press the button to make your seat back raise up


Sit back, relax, have a good time

It’s almost time to go, so I’m done with the rhyme

Thank you for the fact that I wasn’t ignored

This is Southwest Airlines, welcome aboard.
