Alaska Airlines Parodies 1980s Song ‘Safety Dance’

Parodying the 1982 song “Safety Dance” by Men Without Hats, the video released Sunday was complete with dancing flight attendants, an enthusiastic keytar player, and clever lyrics like, “Well your friends don’t mask and why don’t they mask? Well they won’t fly this airline.”

Review: Thompson Playa del Carmen Main House

Thompson Playa del Carmen Main House is a great hotel. The facilities are amazing. The location is fantastic. What you get is worth more than the price, that’s for sure. This is a great hotel with spacious, luxurious furnishings that you could happily spend your vacation. If I went again, I’d like to try the Beach House location, but that doesn’t mean the Main House isn’t a good place to stay. The building and the bellhops and the amenities on offer are all really fantastic.
