While the announcements before a flight are very important, it is rare for people to actually pay attention nowadays. One flight attendant for Southwest Airlines found an interesting way to get people to start listening. He started rapping the pre-flight instructions.

David Holmes, a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines developed a creative rap to narrate the pre-flight instructions on the flight. He gets passengers involved by having them clap out a beat and then he gets into the speech with his original twist. The other flight attendants act out the spiel as Holmes raps.
