​Video Clip: Belgian band picked for Brussels Airlines safety video

By Rick Lundstrom

Brussels Airlines today launched a new safety video featuring the Belgian band Hooverphonic.

The group wrote a song based on the exact reading of the instructions. The result is a clip, in which the song is mixed with surrealistic images including an homage to Belgian artist René Magritte.

From 1 August, the video will be rolled out on all of the airline's long-haul aircraft.

Until recently, the safety instructions were presented with a humorous animated film. Earlier the Red Devils also gave the instructions.

On August 1 Hooverphonic surprised departing passengers at Brussels Airport with a short set at one of the gates. During that set, they performed, apart from two of their own songs, the song they created for the Brussels Airlines safety video.
