Travel always benefits from lively transportation employees, whether on trains, planes, buses, or elsewhere. I think of the hilarious Metro conductor on the Orange Line who cracks up commuters with his commands to spread out (WJLA recently discovered the man is Lamore Rogers). Another transportation superstar emerged in 2009, and this entertainer is an employee of Southwest Airlines. Post columnist Gene Weingarten just tweeted the following video that celebrates "the world's coolest flight attendant," a singing, clapping, and undeniably fun man named David. He delivers the most memorable flight announcement I've ever seen..
"I've had five flights today," Dave tells the plane's passengers, "and I just cannot do the regular boring announcement again or otherwise I'll just put myself to sleep. So you guys with me? All right. So give me a stomp, clap, stomp, clap ... Stay on beat there!"
And then an astonishing, wonderful flight announcement rap begins. The video has apparently made the rounds on Reddit, which hardly surprises me. This is simply terrific and, in the name of entertaining transportation moments, I wanted you experience the announcement, too. Brighten up your Thursday and watch the video here:
