Flava Flav Jacks Airline P.A. SystemPublished by Natasha Fierce on Monday, July 16, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Flava Flav decided to make some noise…at 15,000 feet.
The eccentric rapper, um, hijacked the Southwest Airlines P.A. system on a flight from Burbank to Las Vegas on Sunday, to plug his Vegas chicken and waffles restaurant.
TMZ reports that Flav jumped on the intercom just before descent to talk to unsuspecting passengers about Flavor Flav’s House of Flavor, and proceeded to read out the menu. He capped off his performance by leading the entire plane in a chant of “Flaaava Flaaav…”
Flav must be serious about the restaurant biz because just one week ago, he made an appearance at his chicken joint to chat with passengers and hand out copies of his autobiography. One patron, who wrote about the experience on Yelp, said Flav managed to “convince me that he is the most caring restaurant owner in the entire food service industry.”
We probably wouldn’t risk getting taken down by an air marshall for some free promotion, but good on ya, Flav. The restaurant business is notoriously risky but with attention like this, he’ll probably have a chain on his hands in no time.
