Dallas dancer and Arlington singer fly in Virgin America’s awesome safety video
This thing is a trip.
We can practically recite by heart the pre-takeoff safety rules you're required to endure before a flight. Southwest Airlines flight attendants occasionally make them more fun, but on the whole, it's mundane stuff, like how to fasten a seatbelt.
Arlington guy and YouTube megastar Todrick Hall is part of a new Virgin America safety video that makes your pre-ascent into the sky a musical. There's breakdancing. A contortionist. A kid hip-hop dancer. And a spotlight from popper Cyrus Spencer, the Dallas guy who won second place on So You Think You Can Dance Season 9.
It's a ton of fun. Let's fly:

The video made a splashy debut on Ellen DeGeneres' show this week. According to the Daily News, however, the Federal Aviation Administration just announced that it will allow passengers to use their phones in airplane mode even during takeoff and landing. Which means the new Virgin America video is already dated.
