On one hand I commend them for trying, because it’s clear a lot of effort went into the production of this video. But at the same time the video sort of feels like an attempt to imitate Air France’s incredible safety video, but it falls short. Kudos to Air France on that video by the way, because the more often I see it, the more I love it.
Not to be outdone, Delta has released their latest safety video, less than 24 hours after American released their video. I doubt it’s a coincidence. Lately Delta has had very specifically themed videos, and this one has a theme I sort of love. It’s called “Delta Safety Video Game: Legend of Safety.”
I happen to think it’s well done, though I could also see this getting annoying pretty quickly. However, I’m happy to see that it’s replacing Delta’s previous safety videos, which I found to be one of their worst videos yet.
The previous video was called “Delta Global Safety Video, and simply consisted of flight attendants of different nationalities doing the safety demonstration. I couldn’t help but feel like the performance was so stereotypical to the point of almost being cringe-worthy.
So well done on the new video, Delta. I quite like it. But then again, I don’t have to watch it a hundred times, so… 😉
What do you make of Delta’s new video game themed safety video?
