Flight attendants are willing to do anything—literally, ANYTHING—to get passengers to listen to the safety instructions these days. Virgin America has attendants doing entire choreographed routines in the aisles! That doesn't even seem safe!
Meanwhile, Southwest has moonlight comedian Martha "Marty" Cobb, who puts her own little sassy spin on the safety speech with jokes that your dad will LOVE. So it's not Cirque du Soleil in air. Hey, they're on a budget.
"Can I pretend to have your attention for just a few moments?" Marty starts. "My ex-husband, my new boyfriend and their divorce attorney are going to show you the safety features aboard this 737 800 series. It's been a long day for me."
And from there, she's off on a tight three-minute stand-up set!
