Richard Branson will very soon serve as a flight attendant on Air Asia after losing a bet with his pal Tony Fernandes, Air Asia's CEO, over F1 race.
Hilariously, Branson will be decked out in a stewardess outfit as well. He will be seen wearing high heels and makeup and will be cleaning the bathrooms on Air Asia's flight between London Stansted and Kuala Lumpur on February 21, 2011.
Implications - Though celebrity idolism persists in today's society, celebrities themselves still insist on wearing their good-humored, humble sides with pride. Ironically, silly stunts such as these will only strengthen celebrity adoration, as they remind consumers that celebrities are only human, and are easier to relate to than perceived. Essentially, a celebrity's ability to laugh at themselves is an asset and a rather savvy PR move.
