Funny or not? Saturday Night Live on Alaska Airlines door plug debacle

Saturday Night Live aired a spoof commercial this past weekend using the recent Alaska Airlines door-plug emergency incident as inspiration.

The airline’s new slogan, SNL’s fake commercial says, is “Alaska Airlines. You didn’t die and you got a cool story.”

Other lines that may – or may not – make you chuckle, include:

“On other airlines, you can watch movies. But on Alaska, you’re in the movie.”


“We’re the same airline where a pilot tried to turn off the engine, mid-flight, while on mushrooms. And now we’re so proud to say, that’s our second worst flight.”

What do you think? Funny or not. Or a little too soon?
