Watch 'Motown the Musical' Cast Surprise Airplane Passengers With Live Performance

Who needs to go see a show on Broadway? Your airline ticket apparently just comes with a free performance these days. 

The cast of 'Motown the Musical' recently surprised Virgin Atlantic passengers with an elaborate inflight performance WXYZ-TV, Detroit reports. Virgin Group founder Richard Branson was also onboard (and dancing along) to celebrate the launch of the British airline's service to Detroit. Watch as the crew and passengers get into the sing-along action, and most importantly, don't miss the sheepish look on Richard Branson's face when he realizes everyone else has sat down and he's still dancing.

Just to be safe, it's probably not a good idea to be hungover for your next flight.
