Ryan Higa Drags Commercial Airlines With His “Honest Airline Commercial”
The holiday season will be here before you know it, and if you live far away from your family and plan to visit, that can only mean one thing: cramming yourself into a crowded airliner for a tedious trip home.
Ryan Higa draws a big red circle around all the annoying aspects of airline travel with his latest video. “With EveRy Airlines, you’ll never live the same old comfortable life again — because it’s impossible to get comfortable!”
The parody commercial includes all your favorite highlights, like cramped seating, hidden fees, delays, lost and damaged luggage, ear-splitting announcements over the in-flight entertainment system, screaming kids, and obnoxious flight attendants.
“Even though you paid for this flight, we don’t work for you!” says Rob Burtoh. “We’re going to be as rude and condescending as we want!”
It also features an honest safety demonstration video that nobody pays attention to, but gets played anyway so you can’t sue. “In the unlikely event of surviving a plane crash, a life vest is located in a pouch underneath your seat — but so is the luggage of the guy sitting behind you, so you probably won’t have access to it.”
It’s enough to make you want to skip the whole process — “But like we always say here at EveRy Airlines, what other choice do you have!”
