Watch this flight attendant recreate Britney Spears’ Toxic video

Passing the time at work can be tough, but one flight attendant made the most of a bit of downtime by recreating a Britney Spears music video on an empty flight.

The classic early 2000s music video – part of which takes place on an plane – is quite stunningly recreated by Assraf Nasir, a flight attendant with AirAsia. The staffer follows in Spears’ footsteps by singing into the intercom, dancing and strutting down the aisles – though without Britney’s incredible blue flight attendant outfit. His co-worker posted the video to Twitter, where it quickly went viral.

People instantly expressed adoration for Nasir and a bit of nostalgia for the early aughts. The airlines’ CEO Tony Fernandez even shared his admiration for the video, reposting it on Instagram and writing “Classic. Airasia version of Toxic. The talent in Airasia never fails to amaze me. @assrafnasir is the best. Love it that staff can just have fun and be themselves”.


And if even the boss loves it, flight attendants around the world are likely getting ready to live out their Britney fantasies.
