A Southwest Airlines gate at Louis Armstrong International Airport turned into an impromptu karaoke party when a passenger happily accepted a song and dance challenge from employees working there.
The video of the passenger, who is not named, shows getting down to his own rendition of the 1996 classic jam “No Diggity” by Blackstreet on the public-address system at Gate B7. The faces of fellow travelers shift from confusion to amusement as they start to pull out their phones to record the spur-of-the-moment performance.
The video was taken after the Southwest Airlines employees in the video had playfully suggested passengers who approached the gate desk would have to sing a song before asking a question. The man in the video, who appears to be wearing a T-shirt with the Washington Redskins NFL team logo, doesn’t miss a beat as he pulls the PA mic over the gate desk and launches into song.
The result? A delightful – and we think very New Orleans – reminder that waiting in the airport can actually sometime be a very good experience.
