Is it Botox or is it Mother Nature? That’s the debate raging on YouTube since the recent posting of Delta Air Lines’ new on-board safety video. You know, the one that shows you how to buckle your seatbelt and warns you to don an oxygen mask before helping a child do the same?
An attractive (and real) flight attendant, red-headed Katherine Lee, delivers the message in this new announcement with her swollen lips that apparently began the debate about whether they were medically enhanced or not.
As of this writing, the video has been viewed more than 350,000 times in the first three days it’s been posted on YouTube even though it won’t begin appearing on board Delta flights for another week.
Lee was part of a company casting call for the new safety video, and she won. Within days, her video had made her an Internet star, and this morning she appeared on CNN. Asked if she’d consider offers to go into acting or modeling, Lee allowed as how she loves being a flight attendant and had no other plans. Given the number of people who wrote they intended to begin flying Delta more often in the hope Lee would be working their flight, it’s a good bet Lee won’t be part of the massive employee cutbacks planned by Delta.
