Delta’s New Safety Video is Just Full of Internet Memes
Nyan Cat, double rainbows, and highly functional hamsters help remind you to put on your seatbelt.
For its newest safety video, Delta has called upon the greatest forces on the internet: Annoying Orange, cats in shark costumes on Roombas, 8-bit animations, hamsters eating humorously large foods, and more. Have a watch, below:
Delta is hardly the first airline to get sassy with its in-flight films, but it’s definitely the first to make an interactive YouTube flick that lets viewers mix together their favorite YouTube stars—with the help of “Will It Blend?” man, of course. So go ahead, stir and puree Lohanthony, the Harlem Shake, and Peanut Butter Jelly Time.
It may not help you find the emergency exit, or fasten your seatbelt, but so-called “The Internetest Safety Video On The Internet” will definitely help you kill the rest of your work day watching YouTube’s greatest hits.
