So what is the video all about?

According to travel intelligence outfit Skift, “Characters or jokes from viral videos like Charlie Bit My Finger, PBJ Time, Dramatic Chipmunk, and the Ice Bucket Challenge are present from start to finish and take up more of the video than the safety instructions themselves. Scenes or acts from 19 videos are included in total.”

As reported by USA Today, the video was “filmed on an AirbusA330-200 in a hangar at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The carrier used actual employees for all of its employee roles.”
