WASHINGTON – Virgin America wants to make sure its passengers pay attention to safety instructions at the start of its flights, so Tuesday it’s debuting a new, irreverent safety video that features 36 singers and dancers.

The video features a flight attendant snatching a cellphone from a nun (yes, a throwback to a 2007 video), pop-and-lock dancers demonstrating life vests and children rapping about how to use the oxygen mask and not smoking.

With appearances from “American Idol” semi-finalist Todrick Hall and former Olympians Tamara Campos (the nun) and Emilie Livingston (the teacher), the 5-minute video uses 14 dance styles to spell out all of those pre-flight instructions flight attendants give.

Virgin America also is asking people to submit their own videos of freestyle dance moves for a future version of the safety video. Use #VXsafetydance on Instagram.

The airline on Tuesday has a one-day special that offers 20 percent off flights from Nov. 4 to Dec. 17. Restrictions, of course, apply. Use the promo code GETDOWN by 11:59 p.m. on Virgin America’s website.
