Oh My: Malaysia Airlines’ New Safety Video

Oh My: Malaysia Airlines’ New Safety Video

34

Malaysia Airlines has just released a new safety video, and I feel like Virgin America has made a comeback, or something. I’m not sure whether I love it, find it incredibly annoying, or both. See it for yourself below.

What do y’all make of Malaysia Airlines’ new safety video?

    I'm from Malaysia and this video is trending locally!

    This seems to be a full-length video for PR purposes.

    MH has just announced that a truncated version (I suspect no intro - more safety and less dancing/singing and hopefully less annoying version) will be used in the aircraft beginning Aug 2022.

    This is just a terrible video. It's too damn long. Second, the whole purpose of a safety video is to convey safety messages in a clear way for all passengers especially the elderly and the first time flyer. You're not trying to win a Tony Award for the best musical.

  3. red_robbo Guest

    I couldn't watch more than 90 seconds of it. If passengers do the same, then it's failed completely!

  4. SAS Guest

    I find this inflight safety video to be a little to loud and flashy for my tastes. But it may well become a hit amongst music lovers.

  5. Steven E Guest

    Wow some of the comments - I need an English translator

  6. D3kingg Guest

    I hate American Airlines safety video. It’s so whack. Unless we abolish FAs and every passenger must read a safety message and click a box they agree to comply at Checkin.

  7. Ryan Guest

    I feel for the people who fly frequently on MH, good god that’s annoying af. I’d seriously either avoid MH Or bring ear plugs if I flew frequently in Malaysia

    Paging Todrick Hall: Someone has misappropriated your material.

  9. Bill Cannedy Guest

    I lost interest in less than a minute. Way too long and irritating

  10. BenjaminGuttery Gold

    I think the awkward mouthing of the lines was the worst part. Felt like a badly dubbed movie.

  11. Leigh Gold

    Can you imagine being a frequent flyer and hearing this once or twice a week. Dreadful.

    I thought changing up safety videos was to get more attention/engagement from the passengers, whereas with this video I would imagine many people tuning out.

  12. Rohan Member

    this is totally a mimic of the #VXSafetyDance video that Virgin America did back in the day.

  13. Petri Diamond

    This might be fun in charter flights for the not so frequent flyers once a year.

  14. Geoff Guest

    very entertaining, creative but long......great first time, not going to be watched the eighth time..................

  15. KLight Guest

    for those who are familiar with KL's scene, this video brings to mind Blue Boy's legendary drag 'musicals' :-)

  16. Hudute Guest

    I mean this aint good, but for me, the Qatar soccer players "football-famous idiots in the changing room" is still not beat. And some maniacs even like that one, so Im sure this will find admirers, too.

  17. betterbub Member

    Ughhhh imagine this playing on a redeye at 2AM

  18. Andrew Diamond

    Uh. This video is like 12% of my flight time between SIN and KUL.

  19. Chase Guest

    Reminds me of AA's 'click, clack' video...with a whole lot of, something extra.

    Way, way too long for a safety video though.

  20. stogieguy7 Diamond

    Wow, this is really something. Where to begin? Well, first off, it's too damn long! I bowed out about 2/3 through it. While mildly amusing at first, it got old and I can't imagine how old this would get for you if you're on MH for multiple segments. Secondly, what's the theme here anyway? It all seems so random. Basically, this is a hot mess.

    As someone who NEVER watches safety videos, I am shocked as to how long this one is. Are airlines going for the "longest safety video ever" award?

    1. KATA Member

      They probably have a shorter version on board. Most safety videos posted by the airline online is an extended version.

  22. dfw88 Guest

    That was one of the most atrocious things I have ever seen.

  23. Ray Guest

    Looks like they're having an identity crisis. AirAsia's the "fun" airline in the country. They're supposed to be cultural ambassadors, like Singapore/Thai/Garuda next to them. Of course realistically no one would decide to/against flying an airline based purely on safety video

  24. TravelinWilly Diamond

    The part with Patsy, Eddie, and Bubble at the 1:00 minute mark was when I had to stop watching.

  25. Daniel Guest

    I loved it it was very cute but also it was very racist them addressing people as ladies and gentlemen is very racist what about all of the lgbtq++ people who don't adhere to either ladies or gentleman otherwise besides it being racist it was a very cute and enjoyable presentation but I do agree with the other commenter that it would be much better had they known where they're missing plane is I feel...

    1. JW Guest

      Sexist not racist, since when a gender is a race?

    2. patrick Guest

      Probably since people could decide what gender they are or aren't.

    3. Nick Guest

      Grow up Daniel. Not all women are ladies and not all men are gentleman.

    4. Unhoeflich Diamond

      This comment is racist against punctuation.

  26. MaroonOtter New Member

    80 seconds into the video, there's still nothing about safety. What a way to lose people's attention.

  27. Donna Diamond

    Too long and I can imagine it could be very annoying if the sound is cranked up high.

  28. Sky K. Guest

    It could be considered amusing and delightful, if only if it weren’t for the still-missing MH370!
