An aeroplane safety video created by Tom Sachs you will actually watch this time

Although you might not be a frequent flyer, you will be aware of the safety demonstration/video before take off. As the flight attendant flails around with a lifejacket, on cue the book is out and the headphones are in. Tom Sachs and Van Neisat recognised the boredom that ensues when it comes to our welfare on planes by creating a safety video for luxury airline VistaJet. It takes us through the main safety points on an impressively built set complete with a miniature plane. The video uses the stop motion technique and you can tell every element is handcrafted which is quite an achievement – even if the flight attendant looks like a possessed Barbie.
