Alaska Airlines update Safe Dance with cameos from around the world and it’s AMAZING
Gary Leff on the 31st. March 2021.
In December, Alaska Airlines launched the Safety Dance, applying the classic Men Without Hats to air travel during the Covid 19 pandemic.
How is it possible that, despite all the effort and money spent on videos, no airline has yet done so?
To celebrate joining the global oneworld alliance, Alaska Airlines released a new version of its safety dance featuring employees and executives from oneworld partner airlines. (HT: One Mile at a Time)
That’s it. 1 A9 Super. If only because American Airlines President Robert Isom is dancing the security dance there. Oneworld includes employees from airlines such as Fiji Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Sri Lanka and S7.
Lucky from One Mile at a Time does this when he offers: The only thing that would have made this video even better is if Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker had participated, because I think he would have had some great dance moves.
Here are the words:
S-A-F-E-T-Y safe dance /
We can fly wherever you want, we can leave our house, but if your friends don’t dress up and why not, well then they won’t fly with this airline /
You can fly whenever you want, because we do safety right, we’re air, it’s clean and disinfects the germ zapping machines, like the space battle arcade /
And we dance, dance, everybody wash their hands /
Dance, dance, always wear a mask /
Dance, dance, don’t take it seriously, please wash your hands /
Dance, dance, HEPA filters start cleaning /
Alaska protection dance, Alaska protection dance …
The original version of Men Without Hats, released in 1982, is a protest song against the disco clubs of the 80s. Singer Ivan Doroshchuk was expelled from the club for following him. Disco is danced with partners, while new wave dances are solo – and pogoing eventually led to slamming.
He was seen as a threat to disco and disco dancers, so the bouncers wanted to kick people out of the clubs. Safety Dance demands freedom of speech. Safe video requires some compliance (precautions during Covid-19), which hopefully won’t last all summer.
The only airplane/airfield video I can think of that is even remotely amazing is the one of the Munich airport staff lip-synching Come Away With Me by the Donots (seriously, if you’ve never seen it, you need to see it).
