Who would have thought that in-flight safety briefings can be so awesome? Of course, we’ve seen some highly creative safety videos that break the norm from airlines like Air New Zealand and Virgin Atlantic, but now it’s time for Turkish Airlines to step into the game with some plastic bricks.
With the help from Warner Bros., The Lego Group, and Animal Logic, our favourite Master Builders of The Lego Movie universe do what movie stars do best between sequels: Star in a flashy airline safety video!
Created to build up hype for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, Turkish Airlines’ new in-safety video puts Emmet (Chris Pratt), Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett), and many more Lego Movie favourites into one cabin to bring hilarity and style to the mundane safety procedures before takeoff. With the original cast, loads of cameos, and “a song and dance that will get stuck in everyone’s head for the rest of the flight”, how much awesome can you get with a safety briefing? This combines two of my favourite things (animation and aviation) into something that I must admit is truly a blast.
Interestingly enough, this is not the first time that Warner Bros. has collaborated with Turkish Airlines. Back in 2016, the Turkey flag carrier held an advertising campaign for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, consisting of commercials that promote the fictional cities of Gotham and Metropolis, an exclusive promotional livery on one of their Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, and a scene in the movie featuring the airline.
A member of Star Alliance, Turkish Airlines is one of the largest carriers in the world, owning over 320 aircraft that serve over 300 destinations, and flying to more countries than any other airline.
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part will be arriving in North American cinemas via Warner Bros. Pictures on February 8, 2019, although a concrete release date for Turkey is yet to be confirmed.
