Attention, ’80s music fans: Alaska Airlines parodies ‘Safety Dance’ in new video

Friends who don’t mask are the new friends who don’t dance.

If you caught that “Safety Dance” reference, you owe it yourself to watch Alaska Airlines’ new safety video.

The Seattle-based airline has co-opted Men Without Hats’ 1982 new-wave classic for a video touting its COVID-19 precautions. 

“We can fly where you want to, we can leave your house behind,” a male vocalist says, mimicking the delivery of Men Without Hats singer Ivan Doroschuk. “But if your friends don’t mask – and why don’t they mask? – well, they won’t fly this airline.”

As a masked pilot plays a keytar, flight attendants boast that Alaska’s planes have “air that’s clean and disinfectant machines zapping germs like an arcade space fight.”
