Delta's 80's In-Flight Safety Video Is A Totally Rad Blast From The Past (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Ah the '80s. An easier time. A simpler time. A time full of "Alf" episodes.

If you're looking to travel back in time (or just a sucker for nostalgia), and don't know where you put your nuclear-powered DeLorean, just watch Delta Airlines' latest in-flight safety video.

The video starts off normally enough with an in-flight attendant announcing she'll be taking passengers through a safety demo. What follows next is a slew of 80's references that might make your head spin faster than a basketball on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's finger.

Cheesy 80's synth music in the background? Check.

Glam-rock hairdos and denim vests? Oh, yeah.

Ataris, The original Teddy Ruxpin and Alf? You bet.

And we're just at the half-way point here, people.

The airline's humorous take isn't anything new (this is the '80s remember) with airlines like Virgin Airlines and Air New Zealand offering their own quirky takes on plane safety with dancing nuns or dwarfs and orcs thrown in for good measure.

But really, when you've got an in-flight safety video featuring a dude doing the worm while a Steve Urkel look-a-like takes his seat, does it really matter?
