This Virgin America employee brings a lot of flair to his job. Maybe too much flair…

Imgur user rootbeer1, a Virgin America employee, has shared some of the hilarious ‘now departing’ messages he’s written in his time with the company. It’s safe to say that passengers on these flights wouldn’t have been too bored while they waited to board their planes.

There was this creative attempt to speed the passengers up…

Sadly, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing many more of these.

“As a Virgin America employee, I’m encouraged to always put “something” up on our gate signs, if there’s no weather delays or other important info to display,” he writes.

“New owner Alaska Airlines isn’t really known for a cheeky corporate culture, so signs like these are most likely going away.”
