Electro-rock duo Chromeo have the innate ability to make anything funky, as evidenced by the group’s new in-flight safety video for the emerging Canadian airline, Mallard Air, which the duo reportedly invested in but may or may not exist.
The video is made in conjunction with Funny or Die, so potential flyers should take such travel tips as “in case of emergency, disco floor lights will illuminate the way,” and “in the event of water landing, cocktails will be served atop the aircraft” with a grain of salt.
Chromeo’s foray into producing in-flight safety videos with a good beat that you can dance to comes as the band is rocking across North America on the extensive and aptly-titled Frequent Flyer tour, which includes stops at a mess of festivals including Outside Lands and Lollapalooza as well as a headlining date at the Central Park Summer Stage on Sept.12 with special guest Big Freedia.
The group released their most recent album, White Women, in May of this year.
