Nicely done British Airways – the safety video wars continue to heat up. BA has thrown together some of its country’s most famous celebrities, including a Gordon Ramsay ‘bleep’, Gillian Anderson, Sir Ian McKellen, Thandie Newton, a classic appearance from the fabulous Mr Bean, and more.

They’ve combined the instruction with promotion of Comic Relief, a fundraising charity aimed at alleviating poverty.

But clearly the star of this video is comedian Asim Chaudhry who auditions each of the galactic superstars for the job. You just have to love his cheeky direction of these high flying celebs – you almost forget you’re watching a safety video. Very smooth indeed.
