Flight Attendant Makes Like Britney, Recreates “Toxic” Video
It's Britney, bitch?
More like… it's Assraf Nasir, bitch!
In a viral video that has been viewed on Instagram over 263,000 times, this AirAsia flight attendant makes like Britney Spears in this music video for "Toxic," slithering up and won the aisles of a plane just like the pop star back in 2003.
He dances around. He lip-syncs to the track. And he's earned the appreciation of AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes in the process.
"Classic," Fernandes captioned the video on his own Instagram account, adding:
"The talent in Airasia never fails to amaze me. @assrafnasir is the best. Love it that staff can just have fun and be themselves."
Where did this idea come from for Nasir?
He spoke to The Huffington Post about the video shortly after it blew up on the Internet.
"I used to be a performing arts teacher before I became a flight attendant and dance has always been my passion," he explains.
"Once a dancer, always a dancer. The video was meant to be for some close friends and I didn’t expect it would go viral and receive such an overwhelming response, but I guess when you work for a fun company, fun is never far away."
Someone give this man a raise!
Or… someone give this man a different job!
His talents seem to be wasted in his current capacity, don't you think?
