What Are The Worst Safety Videos?

Wed Apr 25, 2012 5:57 pm

There have been lots of threads about the best safety videos out there.

But what about the worst?

What about boring, unprofessional, indiferent safety videos?

Even though it is sad to choose my home-country´s airlines, for me, the worst safety video I have seen in my life on airplanes is CSA Czech Airlines...

Totally boring, indiferent guy, no smile whatsoever, the look is too sterile. Plus, there is no background music.

Here is a link (The version in English starts at 2:24 of the video): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GMQANE7_Cw

What are others you can think of?

PS: Before anybody starts bashing me, I do realize that safety videos are important and their purpose is not to entertain. However, I think that an atractive and not-boring video might attract the attention of pax much more than a boring video withou music.

For me it is definitely the original Etihad one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sz6yex_U2Ic

The English version starts at 4:45. It has a monotonal women speaking about disinteresting graphics. What is the worse thing, however, is that how un-lifelike it is: watch the demonstration on the use of oxygen masks. As my sister commented when we first saw it, what is the chance of someone who doesn't fly often actually thinking it attaches itself automatically?

Add some music or little smile will be better.
But look ANA or JAL's one.

Boring, old style animation with lullaby  
CSA's instruction is much smarter than japanese videos...I think.

At least the video is showing the safety features!

Worst by far is PEGASUS AIRLINES (in terms of information content); the usage of life vests and the location of exits are not shown- not funny at all:

At least the kids are quite funny and the quality is superb, what is in this video NOT the case:

The kids videos were great when Thomson did them, but the Pegasus kid sounds like he should be Oliver Twist.

I'm not a fan of AA's new safety video, while its great having your employees doing the video there far too many featured and doesn't keep your attention. UA's new goes the other way, no crew featured at all, not the greatest in my view
