This is too good - in case of an emergency landing, please follow Willy Wonka? Brilliant. If you were flying with an airline it would be nice to think they took your safety seriously.

Adding in unexpected details or subtly alluding to something is a surefire way to have people pay more attention. Businesses should realize that the market for in-you-face advertising is falling to the wayside and subtly is taking over.
