Of course we know that airline safety is important, but how many of us can actually be bothered to pay attention during the demonstrations? Virgin America might be changing all of that with its newest safety video that is Glee meets So You Think You Can Dance.

The song and dance number in the irreverent video has sassy crew members dancing and rapping in the nearly five-minute video that was directed by John Chu (of Step Up 2: The Streets fame). It also stars actual performers from So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol contestant Todrick Hall, according to USA Today.

Who knew you could be entertained while watching a video that could save your life? Virgin America is once again proving they are doing it right.
