A day of travel can be long and stressful, not to mention, the plane ride can be a little boring too.

While it’s far more dangerous to drive from your house to the gas station than it is to fly across the country – it’s not that entertaining sitting in a seat for hours on end. Aside from downing a few drinks and fiddling with some sort of electronic device, a little kindness and humor can go a long way towards making a flight awesome.

Maybe that’s why the internet is going nuts for the spunky Southwest flight attendant in the clip below.

The attendant in question is Marty Cobb who has undoubtedly been through the safety regulation motions one too many times.

Instead of letting the monotony get the best of her, Cobb and her team decided to spice up the routine to make their jobs fun, all while delivering the necessary information. But best of all, it gave the passengers a heaping dose of entertainment too!

Get ready to laugh along with everyone else.

While the clip is full of one-liners, it may take a few viewings for all the zingers in Cobb’s polished routine to really sink in. To that end, we’ve made things a little easier by pulling a few choice lines:

“In the highly unlikely event that the captain lands us near a hot tub, everybody gets their very own teeny weeny yellow Southwest bikini.”

“The flight attendants are coming by … [to make sure] your carry-on items are crammed and shoved completely under the seat in front of you, leaving absolutely no room for your knees or feet.”

She also hilariously says:

“Although we don’t anticipate a loss in cabin pressure, if we did we certainly wouldn’t be at work tonight.”

The three-minute speech is filled with hilarious jokes that are perfect for a comedy stage.

“Although the plastic bag might not inflate, you are receiving lots and lots of gin… Oxygen that is. And if you’re traveling with small children…we’re sorry.”

If the best comedy comes from pain, Cobb’s safety routine is a masterclass.

All jokes aside though, we wish all our flights had an intro as animated as this one is. However stressful flying can be (before even setting foot on the plane, in some cases), Cobb’s casual demeanor and quippy delivery have the whole flight in hysterics before they even leave the tarmac.

It’s not hard to see why the footage has gone viral. The YouTube video below has over 26 million views.

To sum it all up, Cobb deadpans yet again to put the instructions in perspective: “Basically, just do what we say and nobody gets hurt.” We’ll definitely remember that next time we fly!
