This is a great article from CNBC:

Also this is a "remix" version to Men At Work - "Safety Dance":

Here is another vid:

Pretty amusing I think...But the FASAP is "deeply perturbed" by it, even calling it "sexist":

"The Flight Attendants and Stewards Association of the Philippines (FASAP) said it “is deeply perturbed by the recent video spreading in the Internet showing dancing flight attendants while performing the safety demonstration of the flight.”

“While it may look like a harmless publicity stunt to attract passengers at first glance, in the long run the stereotyping of flight attendants as entertainers will surely have a negative and sexist impact in the minds of the public, at the expense of the unwitting female-dancer-flight attendants,” FASAP said in a statement.

“In fact, the dancing flight attendants video has elicited a lot of sexist comments in YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. This gender insensitive packaging is a throwback to the unenlightened past during the 50s and 60s when ‘stewardesses’ were made to wear hot pants and mini-skirts to appeal to dominantly male business travelers. To make them dance in front of passengers takes this mind-set to new lows,” the group noted.

Cebu Pacific officials challenged the group's assertions. “The safety demo dance rendition is just another way to bring out our fun culture and showcase our homegrown talents,” said Candice Iyog, vice president for marketing and distribution."
