HILARIOUS VIDEO: Sleeping airline passenger uses neighbour as makeshift pillow

Video footage of a sleeping passenger using her neighbour as a pillow has gone viralHas your personal space ever been invaded during a flight by other passengers?

It’s a common complaint, especially in economy class, and YouTube user Steve Callum can definitely relate. And after watching his latest video on the social media website, you’ll understand why!

The video, which was uploaded a couple of weeks ago, had been filmed during a recent flight across the US East Coast. Soon after take-off, the woman seated next to Steve decided to have a little nap… and unintentionally started to use Steve’s body as a makeshift pillow.

After his initial efforts to move the lady off him, Steve decided to start filming his failed attempts, and the video has become a viral hit online, attracting more than 200,000 page views since being uploaded two weeks ago… and the number is growing fast.

“Here I was... Minding my own business on a flight home, when I ended up in an extremely awkward situation. This lady was totally out of it. As soon as she sat down, she started falling asleep, and it only got worse as the flight continued,” he commented on YouTube.

“I tried lifting her up, shaking her, and startling her, but it seemed like nothing was going to work. So, I thought it would be fun to get some of it on video to share with family and friends. Then she finally moved... Only to find someone else for the last part of the flight. Ha!”

  1. This guy obviously never rides the bus. You elbow them as hard as it takes to wake them up.

    Must be very awkward but I enjoyed Mr Callum's reaction. He has a very well-developed sense of humor... like in the silent movies of the early 20th century. :))

  3. She appears to be a flight attendant dead-heading home or somewhere...

  4. Lmao, I have done that!

    That was funny!

  6. I wondered whether she may have fancied you Steve? Reminds me of a blond some years ago who went to sleep on my lap. When I told her first class didn't fly to Toronto she went and found an economy seat.
