Millions view Mike McAdam's in-flight safety demo from Las Vegas-Regina flight.

Airline passengers are rarely enthused about the mandatory safety speech, but one WestJet flight attendant recently got laughs, applause and a viral video out of his demonstration.

Steward Mike McAdam had customers in stitches on a flight from Las Vegas to Regina as he put his own comedic spin on how to access oxygen masks and emergency exits.

The video, captured by Lumsden veterinarian Tanya Marshall, has received more than four million views on Facebook.

"We had the best in flight crew on WestJet. Laughed so hard," she wrote on the Facebook post.
