Accordions on the plane? Go Delta!

blog paradise shotI recently returned from a vacation in paradise.

The only thing missing from this extraordinary vacation, quite frankly, was a travel-sized accordion on the catamaran. Not sure the other 7 folks on the boat would agree, but as rockin’ as this floating party was, it could have rocked even more with a squeezebox on board. Imagine my delight when the most kick-ass instrument on the planet made an appearance not in paradise, but on our way there…and in the most unlikeliest of places. Proof yet again that the accordion has infiltrated the mainstream.

Check out Delta’s new in-flight safety video. Being a communications professional, I would appreciate this great example of effectively relaying important information to a target audience even if it didn’t feature an accordion. Yes, the Delta in-flight safety video features an accordion. See for yourself. But you’ll have to stick with it to the very end (specifically for 3 minutes and 39 seconds) to see the best part.

It’s worth it.

  1. There were so many funny parts…in addition to the accordion. : ) I especially loved the part when everyone turned around in their seats and ended up looking at the dude coming back from the bathroom. I dug the triplets in the Exit section too. Ha!

  2. That’s great. An airliner is the last place in the world I expect to see some humor. But it’s welcome. And it just goes to show, an accordion is a universal symbol for “Dude, lighten up.”

    I half expected, Otto the auto-pilot from Airplane! to show up next to the captain at the end. Although, if that happened, then I’d be afraid to fly on their airplane.
