Gaga Spices Up Airline Safety Routine

Gaga-mania knows no bounds — even airlines aren’t immune. Or maybe Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ largest airline, is just obsessed with Britney Spears’ video for “Toxic.” Either inspiration might explain why the airline choreographed its in-flight safety demonstration to pop hits by Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. A video of the dance exploded on YouTube after showing up just a week ago, with nearly eight million views to date. Check out the shaky footage captured by a passenger via the YouTube link below.

Gaga-mania knows no bounds — even airlines aren’t immune. Or maybe Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ largest airline, is just obsessed with Britney Spears’ video for “Toxic.” Either inspiration might explain why the airline choreographed its in-flight safety demonstration to pop hits by Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. A video of the dance exploded on YouTube after showing up just a week ago, with nearly eight million views to date. Check out the shaky footage captured by a passenger after the jump.

CNN spoke with Cebu Pacific’s Vice President for Marketing, Candice Lyog, who said that the choreography was part of a test flight and has not yet been implemented. But with the dance gaining support thanks to the viral video, it might not be too long until all of Cebu Pacific’s flight attendants will be hip-thrusting and shoulder-popping up the aisles. To us, that sounds like an improvement on the boring ol’ safety demo no one pays attention to anyway.

But what about you? Do you want a little Gaga blasting from the speakers next time you fly? Or maybe you’d prefer Air New Zealand’s approach to spicing up air travel: naked flight attendants!
