Assraf Nasir performing the song 'Toxic' on flight (Twitter)
Remember Britney Spears in her chartbuster music video “Toxic”? The song gained worldwide recognition after its release in 2004 and remained on the top charts in several countries.
But why are we talking about it now?
Assraf Nasir, a flight attendant on the Malaysian carrier AirAsia, mimics the popular pop singer’s moves from her "Toxic" music video and nails it. In a tweeted video, Nasir is seen showing his well rehearsed dance moves in the aisle of an Airbus A330. He is seen singing into the intercom, pushing a food trolley and behaving like a total diva.
The video was originally uploaded by Nasir's co-worker Farhan Rzman. It has since gone viral and has been picked up by several global publishers.
This is the original for comparison:
Many Facebook and Twitter users shared the video and have promised to book their flight on AirAsia now.
The video has now even been shared by Tony Fernandes, CEO of AirAsia on his instagram account. In his post he said, “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.”
Here's some love from Nasir:
