Watch Wayne Rooney and Manchester United teammates star in Turkish Airlines safety video

Wayne Rooney and his Manchester United teammates have been signed up to star in an in-flight safety film for Turkish Airlines.

Instead of having to endure bored cabin crew going through the motions, the airline's passengers will now be treated to safety lessons from Rooney, Darren Fletcher, Rafael, Fabio, Nani and Chris Smalling before take-off.

The video has been created as part of Turkish Airlines' ongoing sponsorship of Manchester United. But will it have the same appeal as Air New Zealand's effort, which has had more than two million views on YouTube?
