These days Airline safety videos are more entertaining and indeed, funnier than an episode of Saturday Night Live. This time around it’s British Airways that is taking the plunge with a hilarious new British Airways safety video featuring a team of top celebrities including Gordon Ramsay, Rowan Atkinson, and Thandie Newton.

The entertaining new pre-flight safety video, which launches in September, features some of Britain’s best-loved personalities and has been designed to help customers absorb important safety messages while boosting fund-raising for ‘Flying Start’, the global charity partnership between British Airways and Comic Relief. In the video, ten celebrities are seen auditioning in humorous sketches in front of comedian Asim Chaudhry, as his People Just Do Nothing character Chabuddy G, for a coveted part in the safety video, while simultaneously demonstrating the safety features and procedures on the aircraft.
