The frozen, silently smiling employees gives me an unsettling Stepford vibe. Although I guess as IFE gets ripped out of the narrowbodies we won’t have to watch it as much...
Why can’t AA just use an actual aircraft for their safety video? They should just go back to this: https://youtube.com/watch?v=nmxQbuHAkZM
Simple, not gimmicky, and the employees don’t look like robots. Update the uniforms and livery and it’s fairly timeless.

I figured they would eventually create one given the new uniform launch, although I am not sure if this has gone live nor even public at present because I couldn't find any information regarding the release of a new video. It does appear genuine, with the exception of the the slogan at the end. I know AA filed trademarks for 4 new potential slogans last year, and the video ends with one that ultimately isn't the one that AA uses today in their press releases (caring for people on life's journeys).
Anyway, I think the video is 100% better than the other one that they were using that was absolutely cringing, from the music to the script narrated by the flight attendant in the video to the graphics. This one is much more gentler, friendlier if I may say.
