United Airlines’ new safety video made me smile

I reckon United did a really good job with their new safety video, which you can watch below. The location switches keep us watching.

Extra points for the James Bond reference and judicious kangaroo usage.

I wish that the demonstration plane could have been displayed solely in papercraft, but it would have been too hard to see what the flight attendant is talking about. Overall, it’s the best North American safety video I’ve ever seen. Hey, it’s tough to beat Air New Zealand.
