Emirates safety briefing video at Hamburg stadium released

Time Out Dubai has the comedy sketch Emirates Airline safety briefing video at Hamburg stadium, released on the airline's YouTube channel. Watch it here

Emirates Airline's association with sport is well known, from the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens to the Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal in London.

They also know a fair bit about good viral videos having been partners in the latest Jetman clip that made headlines around the world.

And now they've combined the two.

In a video released on the airline's YouTube on March 3, a group of Cabin Crew in their uniforms are escorted onto the pitch at Hamburg's Voksparkstadion in northern Germany in front of 57,000 supporters.

Eagle-eyed fans will recognise the introduction as being strikingly similar to a short film last year in which the iconic safety briefing was performed on the pitch in Portugal. On that occasion, in front of Benfica fans at the Estadio da Luz, the Emirates staff stuck to the centre circle as they jokingly pointed towards fire exits, informed fans about staying seated, and plenty more.

This latest clip starts in the same way but the switch is quickly flipped as the crew of eight head for one of the goalmouths and proceed to wow the unsuspecting crowd with stepovers, top corner shots and keepy-ups... all while wearing long coats and Emirates hats and scarves. On their feet, football boots rather than high heels.

The minute-or-so of action sees a number of goals and silky skills, suggesting that the German team might sign up those involved. Hamburg are 11th in the Bundesliga after another disappointing season.

Not necessarily the funniest thing you'll see this week, but good Thursday afternoon fodder none the less...
