It’s inventive in-flight entertainment — but not everyone is amused.
A plane passenger has divided public opinion after using a film projector to play a movie for fellow travelers on the surface of an overhead bin.
While the identity of the creative flier has not been revealed, his antics were recorded by Douglas Lazickirk, who was also on board the aircraft.
“This guy set up a projector screen and started playing a film mid flight,” Lazickirk captioned the Instagram Reel clip. “I’ve seen it all.”
The footage shows the plane in darkness as the 2000 action flick “The Patriot” beams off the bin.
While there was no accompanying sound, the passenger put subtitles on the projector so that everyone was able to follow along.
Lazickirk’s clip also reveals there were no seatback screens on board the plane, meaning many passengers may have been thankful that they could kick back and watch a movie while up in the air.
“Honestly I’d be into it,” one viewer of Lazickirk’s video enthused, while another added, “Can’t tell if this is terribly rude, or considerate? Perhaps both somehow.”
However, others weren’t so enamored by the mile-high stunt.
“Is everyone traveling by air allowed to act like it’s their own private world these days? Or anything for attention? What happened to standardization?” one complained, with another exclaiming, “What the literal hell?!”
“I wish you had addressed the inappropriateness of this move,” another chimed in, saying the Heath Ledger and Mel Gibson flick was not suitable for children on the plane.
“That’s exactly what I was thinking,” an additional viewer concurred. “It’s all fine and dandy until someone decides ‘The Godfather’ is family-friendly.”
It’s unclear on which airline the incident occurred.
However, Lazickirk’s clip was re-posted by the TSA’s official Instagram account, which added a caption reading, “large electronic devices are allowed in carry-on bags.
“Any device larger than a cell phone should be removed from your bag and placed in a separate bin,” the organization added. “Devices in factory packaging are allowed, but they may need to be unwrapped if additional screening is required.”
