WATCH: Airline passenger scrolls through movies with bare feet!

An airline passenger has been filmed browsing movies with his bare feet, providing the perfect reminder to always sanitise your touch screens.

A viral video circulating on Twitter shows what’s been reported as a Delta Air Lines passenger using his bare feet to select a movie on the screen in front of him.

Shared by New York-based author Alafair Burke, the clip has racked up more than 150 thousand likes and over 30,000 retweets at time of writing.

“My friend who doesn’t have twitter sent this from her flight,” Burke writes in her post. “It belongs on Twitter.”

Several comments pointed out the man could have issues with his mobility, forcing him to use his feet to select a movie. But, according to the photographer, the man was seen walking on and off the plane, carrying his own bag.

“He just likes to watch TV with his bare feet,” Burke tweeted.

As you might have thought, the comments section was rife with quips, horror and commotion:

“This is the most disturbing thing I’ve seen on Twitter,” one user said.

Another said they would start copying Naomi Campbell’s pre-flight routine, which involves rigorous cleaning of everything to be touched on an airplane, after watching the video.

Another user hilariously quipped a quote from TV show The Office in which character Dwight Schrute uses his feet to type an email and pick up a cup of coffee, which he spills all over himself.

Travel Weekly has contacted Delta Air Lines for comment.
