For nervous fliers, it's the part of the trip where you're reminded of everything that could possibly go wrong in the air. For everyone else, it's when you're supposed to stop reading your book, playing "Words With Friends" or turn off the music and listen to the flight attendant tell you about the emergency exits, oxygen masks, etc.
But for Southwest passengers lucky enough to have a flight attendant named Marty, the pre-takeoff safety speech is three minutes of pure joy.
"In the highly unlikely event that the captain lands us near a hot tub, everybody gets their very own teeny weeny yellow Southwest bikini," she says at one point, referring to the life preservers used for emergency water landings.
The video's title suggests the flight attendant is hoping to do more than just make her passengers laugh: "Hilarious SWA Flight attendant- In Mid Life Crisis MUST meet Ellen and Jimmy Fallon!!"
With the attention she's getting now, it just might happen.
The "Today" show identified the flight attendant as Martha "Marty" Cobb.
Southwest has a history of letting its flight attendants show some personality and humor. Check out a few of our favorites below.
