There’s not a whole lot to get excited about when you fly domestically these days — cramped seats, (maybe) a minuscule bag of pretzels and a plastic cup of Coca-Cola are the “highlights” of your typical domestic jump. Typically, one of the lamest parts of the flight is the safety demonstration — frequent flyer’s eyes glaze over and they tune out the flight attendant droning on about how to buckle a seatbelt.

But for those aboard Southwest flight 1597 on November 9, passengers were definitely paying attention. One of the flight attendants performed a hilariously provocative rendition of the pre-flight safety presentation that had the entire cabin erupting in laughter. The man of the hour, Nicholas Demore, can be seen adding his special “flair” on how to operate a life vest and somehow creates entertaining material out of perhaps what is the most mundane object on board — the seatback safety card.

“Your flight attendants are walking the walk and strutting [their] stuff to make sure your seatbelts [are] securely fastened,” you can hear over the intercom as Demore sashays down the aisle, hinting that he may moonlight as a runway model

Watch the video and try not to laugh — even the flight attendant announcing the safety procedures had a hard time keeping it together.

Demore told WIST10 about his reasoning for his hilarious performance:

“With what is happening in today’s world, people need to smile more and that is why I do my fun safety demo. Every passenger has a story, and you never know what someone is going through on a day-to-day basis. Their travels can be taking them on vacation, girls weekend, or a golf trip, but they could also be going to see a friend in the hospital, to take care of their elderly parents, or even a funeral. I love being able to make them forget their troubles or enhance their trip just by being me, and Southwest lets me bring my personality to my job.”

Southwest flight attendants have a history of providing novel entertainment in-flight. The airline seems to love the fun reputation it’s earned because of it, and even retweeted a video of Demore’s performance on its official account.
