Legendary flight attendant gives one of his final Virgin America safety video dance performances and it's flawless
I don't get flights very often, but I do sympathise with the common frustrations. Whether it be waiting for your luggage to arrive (if it arrives at all), going through endless security checks, and sitting around hoping that your flight isn't cancelled - it's not an ideal process.
When it comes to air stewards, they've got a rough gig. Anyone in a customer-facing job will face their fair share of rude people, but those on a plane are going to be even worse. Being cramped on a flight, with a crick in your neck and a desire to stretch your legs, with screaming babies around you and your ears popping... you are in the absolute worst, most grumpy state to have to deal with any staff member.
So, how the hell do the staff cheer anyone up, or even give them any information without their eyes glazing over? Well, in the case of this man, he put on a bit of a show for the tired masses.
Virgin America has now officially merged with Alaska Airlines, which means the Virgin safety video will soon be retired. However, user @hunterwalk captured one of Mikey Tongko-Burry's last performances to the song, and his moves are incredible:
Once the tweet went viral, with over 18,000 likes, there were plenty of people looking to chime in and show their appreciation for the flight attendant, his dance moves, and the song.
And then Mikey himself turned up to thank everyone for their support.
Hopefully Mikey's charisma and killer moves find a new place to shine, as soon as possible!
