May we have your attention, please?

Do you actually pay heed to those boring safety instructions while flying? While some may not grab your attention (the turbulence certainly will), they serve a very important purpose. And you wouldn't want to be caught unbeknownst should a 'situation' occur. We are happy that certain airlines around the world have been coming up with creative safety videos to keep passengers entertained and informed. Here are five such videos.

The dreamy video produced by TAP AIR PORTUGAL is shot in a variety of locations: the serene beaches of Portugal, a luxury train, a cheerful carnival and thick forests, among others. Different characters breeze in and out of the frame, explaining the safety instructions.

SINGAPORE AIRLINES’ beautifully shot five-minute video takes the viewer out of the aircraft cabin and into the expanse of the city-state. A cabin-crew member visits famous landmarks while performing everyday tasks that mirror safety steps passengers must take while flying.

TURKISH AIRLINES has a new video that is serious and funny in equal measure. Their latest collaboration with Warner Bros. has a star cast that isn't even human. Three million Lego blocks and characters are part of this stop-motion presentation that took 900 days to produce!

A screenshot of the Air New Zealand safety announcement video

Upping its game in the all-out safety-video war that has seemed to grip the world, AIR NEW ZEALAND's video has a 600-strong cast and a twist—instructions delivered through rap. Filmed at multiple locations, the insanely colourful video has people dancing to 'It's Kiwi Safety'.

A screenshot of the British Airways safety announcement video

Who knew that a blend of humour and safety instructions can work so effectively? BRITISH AIRWAYS’ star-studded video features celebrities ‘auditioning’ for the position of a flight attendant. It makes passengers laugh as well as imbibe the important messages.
