Rad! Alf, Teddy Ruxpin & Kareem Abdul Jabbar Star in Delta's '80s In-flight Safety Video
Airline Pays Homage to Decade of Neon and Net Shirts
Jan 28, 2014
Delta and Wieden & Kennedy New York go totally '80s in the latest of its creative in-flight safety videos. This new film, which just launched online today, is rife with references from that decade of net shirts, neon and big hair. As the flight attendant goes through the seatbelt and oxygen mask motions, we meet passengers pulled straight out of the era -- peppered with fun references like a Rubik's cube, cassette tapes, Teddy Ruxpin and a Devo hat. There are even cameos of lovable '80s alien Alf, and in the final cockpit scene--that famous copilot from that classic '80s laffer Airlplane-- Lakers vet Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
