Cebu Pacific Airlines Flight Danced To Pop Hits California Gurls and Just Dance. We’ve all done it – failed to pay attention during a routine safety demonstration aboard an aeroplane.but passengers flying to the Philippines are suddenly changing their tune.
Cabin crew on board a Cebu Pacific Airlines flight had the attention of everyone on board as they danced their safety demonstration – to Lady Gaga.
Stunned passengers were unable to take their eyes off the bouncy attendants as they indicated the emergency exits to Just Dance.
They also performed to Katy Perry’s California Gurls. The music competes with a voiceover that informs passengers what to do ‘in the event of an emergency landing’.
One quick-thinking passenger filmed the performance on a mobile phone, posting it to YouTube.
The clip is the latest internet sensation, going viral within hours and chalking up one-and-a-half million hits in just over 36 hours.
Candice Iyog, vice President of Marketing at Cebu Pacific Airlines, told GMANewsTV: ‘Cebu Pacific has always been known as a fun airline, we wanted to get the message across to our customers that flight safety doesn’t have to be boring.
‘This was an experiment that we hope to repeat and also a chance to showcase the talent of some of our cabin crew staff.’
She said that the airline had hired professional choreographers to compose the steps.
‘We knew that the performances would be well received, but we didn’t expect them to be this popular,’ she added.
But just in case they were criticised for not taking safety seriously, the cabin crew preformed a normal safety demonstration before take-off.
The dance version was not performed until the plane hit cruising altitude – a special rendition for those passengers who had failed to watch the first version.
The video has already come to the attention of celebrity host Ryan Seacrest – who flagged it up to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.
‘gotta see this! Flight attendants dancing the entire safety demo to @ladygaga & @katyperry,’ he tweeted.
As of the time of writing, neither star had yet replied.
The discount airline has also been known for in-flight games and flight attendants in hot pants.
