A video has emerged of a WestJet flight attendant who decided to spice up his safety instruction demonstration. The unidentified man gave a hilarious performance that had the cabin passengers bursting out in laughter and applause. 

After seeing the safety demonstration once, I think we can all agree that most regular fliers dont even look up anymore. I'm usually setting up my downloaded Netflix series that I'm going binge on for the rest of the flight. 

A typical flight attendant will do the safety demonstration with the same straight and serious face while reminding us there could be a potential emergency on the flight. It's definitely not the most uplifting thing to think about before heading 30,000 feet in the air. This particular comedic flight attendant definitely would have lightened the mood and calmed nervous fliers before take off. 

The WestJet flight was headed from Calgary to Phoenix when the flight attendant decided to perform the slapstick routine to the delight of the passengers on board. “This fella caught my eye as he was just bursting with an energy that seemed absolutely contagious.” said a 61 year old passenger on board the plane. 

"I can honestly say that in all of my 61 years, I have never ever seen a flight attendant captivate the passengers like this. Everybody actually clapped when he was finished and then something crazy happened, we all watched the French version too!"

In the background of the video you can hear the woman recording the video barely able to contain herself as the man repeated the demonstration in French.

The YouTube video has already been viewed over 100,000 times in just a few days. 

One commenter said “this is how you get people to pay attention to a safety brief.

Another complimented “This guy actually loves and appreciates his job, awesome dude.


The most relevant comment came when one commenter stated the truth about the flight attendants performance. It could actually help save lives. 

"I get bored out of my skull during repetitive pre-flight safety briefings (even Air New Zealand!). Finding ways to look like I am actually listening without my eyes glazing over, is getting harder. This guy would certainly keep me awake and alert no problem plus, I would probably even remember something that could save my life if, the Gods forbid, the worst came to the worst."
