"If I could pretend to have your attention for just a few moments, my ex-husband, my new boyfriend and their divorce attorney are going to show you the safety features of this [airplane]."
So begins six minutes of hilarity from a Southwest Airlines flight attendant on a plane about to take off for Salt Lake City (a passenger near the front is even wearing a Weber State University T-shirt). The unnamed attendant turns the standard safety monologue about your seat belt, life vest and the oxygen mask above your seat into a pretty terrific and jabbing stand-up routine.
The video (shot vertical — when will people learn?) has gone viral. As of Wednesday morning, it’s amassed more than 5.5 million views on YouTube since it went up Saturday.
