British Airways have released a hilarious new safety video packed with big names such as Michael Caine, David Walliams and Joanna Lumley.

The video shows six major celebrities ‘auditioning’ in humorous sketches in front of hapless ‘director’ comedian Asim Chaudhry, who is going by the name Chabuddy G.

Each star explains a different safety measure, from seatbelts to lifejackets, as Chabuddy G critique their acting skills -and the results are very funny indeed.

The safety video has been launched in collaboration with Comic Relief and is filled with jokes guaranteed to entertain passengers travelling with BA from July.

Olivia Colman, Jourdan Dunn, Naomie Harris also feature, with Colman accidentally being mistaken for the tea lady.

The new film builds on the success of the first instalment, which featured the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Sir Ian McKellen and Thandie Newton, and has been seen by customers nearly 25 million times.

As with the first instalment, the new film brings together a collection of Britain’s most-admired celebrities to create a humorous video, while also helping customers take in important safety information.

The video promotes Flying Start, the global charity partnership between British Airways and Comic Relief which has supported over half a million children across the UK and some of the world’s poorest communities since launching in 2010.

“It’s great to be launching another star-studded in-flight safety video,” said Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience.

The first video was a huge success, making customers laugh all around the world, while also helping them to take in those all-important safety messages pre-flight.

“Our first video was seen by customers nearly 25 million times so it’s a great way to promote Flying Start, our global charity partnership with Comic Relief.  

“Thanks to our generous customers and colleagues we’ve raised over £19 million for Comic Relief over the past eight years.

“We hope this video will help us to grow our total even further, as we support great causes at home and around the world.”

The video will first roll out across short-haul during July, then will roll out across long-haul from 1 August.

Last year’s British Airways safety video was also led by Asim Chaudry.

The footage boasted cameos of many well-known British stars including Chiwetel Ejiofor, Gordon Ramsay and Gillian Anderson among others.

Asim shows off his acting skills by flirting with Thandie Newton, who doesn’t take too kindly to it.

Comedian Rob Brydon joins in, giving a cheeky explanation regarding the lifejacket, and blowing the whistle, stating: “Should you be one of those people who enjoys the attention.”

Actors Ian McKellen and Warwick Davis also featured as they joined forces when it came to announcing how to use the oxygen mask.

The final sketch is with Rowan Atkinson as his Mr Bean character whilst he looks for spare change for the charity donation.
