With a taste of a poison paradise, one flight attendant lived out every Britney Spears fan's dream: re-creating her iconic 2004 "Toxic" music video. And yes, he did it on an airplane.
In a Twitter video posted by his co-worker, Malaysia-based AirAsia employee Assraf Nasir does a spot-on impression of Spears, who acts in the original video as a futuristic flight attendant. He even nails the opening line, which Spears speaks into the phone intercom while looking seductively into the camera.

Nasir then breaks into the video's fierce choreography and uses the beverage cart to shimmy down the aisle, just as Spears does.
The video got so much traction, AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes posted his support for his fun-loving staff.
Classic. Airasia version of Toxic. The talent in Airasia never fails to amaze me. @assrafnasir is the best. Love it that staff can just have fun and be themselves.

Watch the original version below as a comparison, while we patiently wait for Nasir to re-create the rest of the video, decked out in a crystal-clad bodysuit or a fiery red wig.
