Virgin America has introduced an in-flight safety video with singing and dancing. The airline calls it the "VX Safety Dance " video.
The video was directed by Hollywood film director (and Virgin America frequent flyer) Jon M. Chu ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation," "Step Up 2") and includes some of the dancers, singers and choreographers from "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance," with production by Virgin Group's entertainment arm, Virgin Produced.
Virgin America released the video just two days before the FAA announced a new policy allowing airlines to use personal electronic devices throughout the flight.
The airline said that it can easily edit the video once Virgin America gets FAA approval to allow passengers to use their devices gate to gate. Safety videos often have to be updated, according to the airline.
