It certainly consistent with the advertising campaign, but I find it somewhat silly. It is not all too funny, fortunately it does not overly try to be funny like some safety videos of other airlines. It's certainly self-deprecating in terms of letting the FA speak English with a very thick French accent.The elements of pantomime make it look childish to me.
Why are there only women and no men in the video?

Much funnier in French - the four minute mark is my favourite with "la tablette doit etre rangée"

I love it! Modern advertisement that keeps elegance and style. Also very funny.

I like it. It is much better than the old one and that most of the dumb competitors' videos (I sometimes almost feel like picking up that BA bunny rabbit and throwing it overboard!! ) My two main worries would be that as others posted it is clearly aimed at a French audience as the English version sometimes makes little to no sense (e.g. The said chocolate bar) and that it feels a bit long compared to normal demos. Fine once for the novelty but frequent flyers might wish it was a bit shorter. At any rate it was time someone tried to tackle NZ on their great annual safety video demos which remain the gold standard in the field.

I find it very good, the chocolate bar is a funny private jock for French speakers and the French accent when speaking English is both funny and sexy. People adore the French accent in English, it is a great idea to use it.

One of their best campaigns so far.

Does anyone have the written script for this video? Hoping to use it as a fun tool for students to practice language skills in the classroom.
