Air Malta’s ‘Gangnam Style’
Air Malta showed its sense of humour yesterday with its version of the ‘Gangnam Style’ music video that took the internet by storm this year.
In Air Malta’s video, the attractive cabin crew dancein the aisle while passengers join in the fun from their seats, at times raising red placards with the chorus “hey”. The dance begins after several mobile phones begin to ring and the video ends with a warning from the captain to turn off all phones.
Marketed as a public service announcement, the video ends with this word of advice: “Please turn off your phones in flight... because anything could happen.”
The video was posted on Air Malta’s Facebook page and was shared more than 500 times, though some criticised the airline for jumping on the Gangnam bandwagon a bit late in the year.
The song, by South Korean musician PSY, was released in July and quickly became the most viewed clip of all time on video-sharing website You Tube, with almost one billion views.
Air Malta’s video was unveiled on the same day that You Tube celebrated ‘Gangnam Style’ in its review of the year’s biggest videos and events.
