Comedian goes viral with hilarious spoof interview after pretending to be flight attendant who duct-taped passenger

A comedian has gone viral after posting a spoof interview pretending to be the flight attendant who duct-taped a passenger to his airline seat.

The story came about when 22-year-old Maxwell Berry was accused of sexually assaulting two female flight attendants.

On the Frontier Airlines flight from Philadelphia to Miami, Berry then assaulted a male flight attendant while shouting that his parents were millionaires.

Social media footage showed the man swinging a punch at the flight attendant before being physically restrained and duct-taped to his seat by the flight attendant he attempted to assault.

Impersonating the flight attendant who duct-taped him, YouTube personality The Real Spark has gone viral with a spoof interview in which he calls himself Alfredo Rivera.

In the 1 minute 33 second-long clip he explained: “I’m a flight attendant, that means I attend the flights. Sometimes our job has us attending to crazy people. If you push us too far, you’re going to have to attend this arse whooping.”

The comic described the passenger, saying: “This man smelt like a pack of Marlboro cigarettes, four shots of Everclear alcohol and regret, so I know something was about to go down.”

He continued, explaining what happened: “So what I did, is took out the duct tape. He got scared and started to stutter, ‘Hold up, wait a minute. Something ain’t right.’

“I said, ‘Yeah, we’re about to mummify your arse now boy.’

“So, we wrapped him up better than any Christmas present you ever see.”

The comedic reporting was interspersed with clips of the real incident, leaving some confused as to the nature of the video.

The spoof interview has been viewed more than 1.2 million times on YouTube and has been reposted numerous times across other social media platforms.

Talking head Piers Morgan reposted the clips, writing, “This is utterly fantastic. We need more people like Alfredo in the world”.

However, it is unclear whether Morgan realised it was a spoof.
