Richard Branson Surprises Unsuspecting Passengers With 'Motown' Musical Performance


When flying with Virgin Atlantic owner Richard Branson, it's safe to assume that something totally crazy will happen.

On June 11, the eccentric businessman surprised passengers on Virgin's inaugural flight from London to Detroit with a musical performance by the cast of "Motown the Musical." As the actors began singing up and down the aisles, Branson eventually joined in for a little dancing action.

Branson talked about the performance -- and his love for Detroit -- on his blog, writing, "It’s great to be able to bring Virgin back to the city at a time when it seems to be on such an upward trajectory."

If all flights to the city involve doing "The Twist," we predict a lot more people heading to Detroit.
