UNDATED (WOOD) — As you buckle your seat belt, position your tray table in an upright position and wait for your flight to take off, just how closely are you paying attention to the flight attendant during the pre-flight safety demonstration?

A video that has gone viral on YouTube shows one Southwest Airlines flight attendant who made sure her passengers were listening as their plane prepared for takeoff.

The Today show reported that Martha “Marty” Cobb posted a video to YouTube on April 12 of her comedic safety-instruction routine, which has since received more than 1.3 million hits.

In the video, Cobb instructs passengers to pay attention as her “ex-husband, her new boyfriend and divorce attorney” provide the safety demonstration.

Cobb then tells passengers to make sure to fasten their seat belts “tight and low across your hips like my grandmother wears her support bra,” and reminds them that if they’re “caught smoking in the lavatory, the fine for that is $2,000 and if you wanted to pay that for your airfare, you should have flown somebody else.”
