What can a flight attendant really do if you get up while the “Fasten Seatbelt” sign is on? Probably not a lot—unless you’re in a Key & Peele sketch.
This sketch kicks off in classic Key & Peele fashion: Once again, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele play two men who get locked in a battle of one-upmanship.
But in this case, Peele plays a flight attendant, and Key plays an unruly passenger who wants to use the bathroom—even though the fasten seatbelt sign is illuminated. (And for those of you at home wondering, we asked a real-life former flight attendant: It might not be illegal to unfasten your seatbelt, but it is illegal to disregard crewmember requests.
So you’d be wise to heed the lesson of the sketch: Never mess with flight attendants.
