“That’s all, folks,” Porky Pig told passengers on a recent Southwest Airlines flight upon landing in Chicago.

The voice actually belonged to Zach Haumesser, a Southwest flight attendant who has an impressive ability for impersonations and second career as a puppeteer.

Passengers captured video of Haumesser delivering the flight attendant’s landing speech, going through all the voices of the Looney Tunes characters. Elmer Fudd, Bugs Bunny and Foghorn Leghorn told passengers to put tray tables in their “upright and locked posiceeeeeon” and turn on their “small ewectwonic devices.”

The video was uploaded to Facebook by Haumesser’s coworker, shown in the video. “This is just one of the million reasons why I LOVE my job... Zach is such a great guy to work with!” she wrote.

Haumesser trained at the Sesame Puppeteer Workshop and currently performs in a web series with a variety of voices.

Haumesser is not the first Southwest flight attendant to spruce up the informational speeches. In 2014, a flight attendant turned her safety speech into a stand-up monologue that has over 22 million views on YouTube. Another Southwest flight attendant joked his way through the safety speech two years ago in a video that has been viewed over 3 million times.
