For a glorious feat of human achievement, air travel sure can be a slog a lot of the time. (If only there was a more efficient way to half-watch Big Bang Theory reruns in the sky!) Why not brighten things up with a touch of showmanship, silliness and a proper ratio of razzle to dazzle? It’s nice to be entertained by someone that isn’t a ridiculously drunk passenger.
A charming slice of videos is currently making the rounds features a Southwest flight attendant tweaking the usual spiel for customers. How? With Looney Tunes impressions galore. A talented mimic by the name of Zach Haumesser managed to weave in the likes of Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd and Porky Pig (among others) while passing along the arrival info and shout-outs to passengers. Imagine being a passenger that nodded off during the flight and you wake up to Sylvester the Cat talking to you over the sound system. How could you process what the heck is going on? Is it possible your Gravol was laced with something?
The passenger reaction is one of increasing delight as this Warner Bros. homaging tour-de-force swirls into a rapid-fire collection of characters as varied as Tweety Bird and the Tasmanian Devil. It’s been a single day since this clip bubbled up on YouTube and it has already racked up more than 640,000 views. You can hit play on that magic rectangle at the top of the page to add to that total and determine if you’d be into this becoming a trend.
