Absurdly Driven looks at the world of business with a skeptical eye and a firmly rooted tongue in cheek.
You look around and hope there’s no one who looks like they might begin bothering you.
A baby, for example. Or worse, two babies.
Then you sit back, relax and try and ignore the announcements.
Once in a while, though, the cabin crew will do something that’ll make you almost giddy with cheer.
Now we have a new entertainer, there to lift spirits.
Please meet Daniel Sandberg. He works for Frontier Airlines and his shtick feels so perfectly rehearsed, yet so brilliantly timed that surely no passenger can resist its charms.
On a flight from Orlando to Colorado Springs, Sandberg began by introducing the two female Flight Attendants as his wife and mistress.
I feel sure they’re not, for so many reasons.
It is, though, a pulsating opener to get people to pay attention.
What followed was a stream of humor that quite simply imposed a completely different atmosphere on the plane.
A sample of Sanderg’s humor.
He describes the life vests as itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikinis. Without the teeny-weeny and polka dot bits.
However: “If by chance yours does not inflate, grab your neighbor and hold on for dear life.”
He even makes child jokes.
Sample: “The location and use of life vests for your child that shows the most potential is located in the safety information card.”
Oh, some might find his jokes a little near the knuckle, but this was an 11 p.m. flight, well past the threshold for permissible late-night humor.
Another sample: “Make sure to adjust your own mask before assisting your favorite child, another passenger or your husband who is definitely screaming louder than you are.”
HIs kicker, a lovely commentary on nickel-and-diming airlines: “Let’s be honest, only those of you who paid the extra $49.99 get any oxygen.”
It’s heartening, though, that Frontier might be getting in on the acting.
Most importantly, though, how touching that the airline can manage to create a good atmosphere on its flights.
As one of the passengers on this particular flight Cindy Kuhn, who originally posted the video, told the Daily Mail:
Some people can be in a mood when flying so I think this was really great because it made everyone feel happy.
How many airlines can manage that?
