Delta Airlines has gone back to the future with its latest in-flight safety video, a keen nod to the 80’s that features multiple references to the decade including Alf, Atari, breakdancing, Teddy Ruxpin, and Devo.

Alas, there does have to be a tinge of reality when showing this sort of thing to passengers in 2014. After all, we doubt the airline had Wi-Fi when “Pretty in Pink” was playing as the in-flight movie.
