Video of AirAsia steward dancing onboard empty plane goes viral, CEO responds

Over the weekend, a video of an AirAsia steward dancing in the unlikeliest of places went viral.

Posted on Twitter last Friday (Mar 17), the video shows Assraf Nasir dancing and lip-syncing to "Toxic" by Britney Spears on an empty airplane.

The video, which has since been retweeted around 5,000 times, made Assraf an overnight sensation. 

Netizens loved the video, with some going to the extent of calling it the best thing they've ever seen.

One netizen cheekily commented:

"Is this why AirAsia flights are always delayed?!"

On top of winning the hearts of netizens, the video also got the attention of AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes. 

He took to Instagram to repost the viral video, and applauded Assraf for his talent and ability to have fun while working.
