British Airways teamed up with Comic Relief to make a new flight safety video based on the premise of people auditioning for a role in the safety video. A selection of top British performers do their best, but the director (comedian Asim Chaudhry) is more impressed with some than with others.
Honestly, when Sir Ian McKellan tells you to put on your oxygen mask, you listen. The video is actually a combination flight safety video and fundraising appeal for the charity Flying Start. It will be shown on flights beginning in September. There’s also a behind-the-scenes look and some outtakes here.
