We laughed at the comedy film “Soul Plane”, starring comedians Kevin Hart, Tom Arnold, D.L. Hughley, Mo’Nique, and Snoop Dogg, which was a spoof about an airline that specifically catered to African Americans and the hip hop culture. The name of the airline was N.W.A. and the royal purple “soul plane” was parked at the Malcolm X Terminal. It had customized low-rider hydraulics, spinners, a dance club, and stewardess who performed the safety demonstration to Destiny’s Child song “Survivor.” Hip-Hop overkill you might say but looks who’s laughing now. Cebo Pacific added a few dance moves to their Safety Demo presentation. How about dancing to Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” and Katy Perry’s “California Gurls.” music.
The airline said in a statement to the Telegraph: “Cebu Pacific has always been known as a fun airline, we wanted to get the message across to our customers that flight safety doesn’t have to be boring. This was an experiment that we hope to repeat and also a chance to showcase the talent of some of our cabin crew staff.” Now that’s ‘edutainment‘—learning while having fun.
Cebu Pacific is a low-cost Philippine airline that focuses on being the “fun airline.” According to their website, their mission is to bring people together through an affordable, reliable mode of travel—a fun-filled experience that’s delivered with a true heart and soul for service.
Soul indeed and apparently quite affective. This will certainly get the passengers attention and possibly new customers who will book this airline airlines just to see the safety show.
