We're used to seeing comedic airline safety videos now, from almost every airline worth its salt. But Turkish Airlines goes one better in its latest effort, by teaming up with the "Lego Movie" franchise to parody the very celebrity/humor-stuffed videos done by others.
The airline's new video features characters from Warner Bros.' "The Lego Movie," as well as the "Lego Batman Movie" and the "Lego Ninjago Movie" (and comes ahead of the release next year of "The Lego Movie 2"). Emmett and Wyldstyle, the heroes of "The Lego Movie," front the video--they explain that as they're between movies, they're doing what movie stars do between movies and "star in a flashy airline safety video."
They're joined by celebrity cameos from Batman, Superman, Unikitty, Wonder Woman, the Lego Shark and other familiar faces, all of whose appearances are in-character and hilariously animated with the franchise's quick-fire self-referential style. The film, which started running on Turkish Airlines flights last week, apparently was made using over two million Lego Bricks.
If this doesn't get you to watch the safety video, we don't know what will.
